I hope you're all well?
For those inquiring about my cousin, he performed brilliantly in the final on Friday night, but the competition was so tight that he didn't win. He wasn't too disappointed though and it was such a brilliant experience - there's no stopping him now!
We had a fantastic weekend away to celebrate my mum turning 60 last month. She was so surprised about all the people who came along to celebrate with us - my aunt even came over from the US to join us! And on Saturday night my little cousin (see above!) and my uncle entertained us all into the wee small hours! We've all been knackered ever since! lol!
And as I was away for the weekend I didn't get to post about the new Pink Team challenge at Eclectic Ellapu, so I'll add my DT entry now and call it a mid-week reminder! lol!
The lovely Dawn is hosting this week and she has chosen the theme of...
It's In The Stars!
A difficult one I think with a brief of signs of the Zodiac/Horoscopes/Astrology. Well, I found it difficult anyway!
Here's what I did:
I didn't know where to start and then I found this fab image - Catleya Tangleberry by Lacy Sunshine - and I thought she looked a little mystical! I coloured her with the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair: E29,39,37,35. Clothes: YG97,95,93,91,V17,15,12. Books: E37,35,33,31,30 And I used a gold metallic pen for the rims of her glasses and on the books.
The papers are MME Mischievous and Basic Grey Eerie. I used lots of starry dies: Spellbinder Star Circles (plus a plain circle), X-Cut Nesting Stars & Dienamics Stacking Stars.
The sentiment is computer generated with the oddly named font: Kingsthings Flashbang.
I hand-drew the symbols of the Signs of the Zodiac onto the different sized stars following this chart that I got off t'internet.
The inside is done to compliment the front and using the Stampin' Up! Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set for the sentiment.
So go take a look at what the rest of the DT have done at Eclectic Ellapu and have a go yourself - I'd love to see what you do!
There is also a DT-Call open at the moment for another week or so, so why not put your name down and join in the fun?!
