I hope you're well.
Hasn't the weather been atrocious! There was even reports of snow a bit further north from here yesterday! We've had plenty of rain and hail and wind with the odd break of sunshine to lull you into a false sense of security that the worst is over! lol!
So why not take the good of the horrible weather and stay in and craft! Sounds like a plan to me! And to help you in this matter, how about a new challenge? A new fortnight at the Alphabet Challenge Blog and the turn of Team A to host the challenge!
Our theme for you for the next fortnight is...
G for Glitter And Gems!
So lot's of sparkly bling for us! Yay!
At this point I'm gonna tell Laura to look away as I have made this card for her and even though it should have been sent off ages ago, it's still sitting on my desk! But I'm hoping to get it posted at some point today.
So here is my card:
Just making sure Laura isn't looking?...
OK, here it is then!
I made a bib card! The image is a real oldie by Stamposaurus called Elle No. 3. I coloured her (?) with the following pro & flexmarkers: Salmon pink, Pastel pink, Pale pink, Apple, Emerald, Olive green, Bright green, Shale, Lilac, Spring lilac & Pink lavender. I used Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord distress inks around the image and then a white gel pen for a bit of interest. I added some glamour dust to the elephants ears and the flower.
I saw this tutorial ages ago and have wanted to make one ever since so I more or less followed it. I added a panel onto the back so as it stands up. Queue weird photo of the back of the card!
The papers I have used are Echo Park Country Drive. I used Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles One and Go Kreate XXL plain circle for the base of the card and Spellbinders circle and big scallop circle for the image and the little collar at the "neck" of the bib. The sentiments are computer generated and I added loads of swarovski crystals. The ribbon is from my stash.
So go take a look at what the rest of the DT have done at the Alphabet Challenge Blog and have a go yourself - remember, we now pick a top 3, so it could be you!
