Firstly I would like to say thank you for all your kind messages regarding recent success that I have had. I have to say that I am still stunned to have reached the top 20 in the last Mojo competition especially when there was over 500 entries. Also reaching the top 5 in the Allsorts challenge and then one of the top 3 cards of the week over at 365 cards. I also would like to say a thank you to the people who selected my cards for these honours! It has given me a real confidence boost. Thank you!
I am really enjoying my holiday, not done as much crafting as I would have liked, although I have already visited one craft shop, "Stampaholics" in perthshire and bought a few goodies, a visit to another craft shop is on the cards (no pun intended) for tomorrow!
I have made this card, which I plan to enter into a couple of challenges. Firstly Papertake weekly http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/ the challenge for the week is using any of the following colours: Pink, Black, White,yellow, Green, Grey, Lilac
The theme for a spoon full of sugar http://aspoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com/ is swirls, and I have used some lovely swirly paper from "Bo Bunny - Beau Jardin Blush" (a new purchase) I have also tried to emphasise some of the swirls using some "distress stickles - worn lipstick" (also a new purchse!)
Also the Allsorts challenge http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/ which is to use only one so I have used only one sheet of paper (its double sided) only one stamp " Inca stamp - Art Nouveau Profile" which I have stamped a number of times to create dimension, I have coloured it using whispers pens, water colour pencils and have done the flower using twinkling H20's and a little bit of stickles. and I have inked round the edges of the image using "distress ink - worn lipstick" Also I used a one word sentiment. I couldn't resist putting the 3 gems on it, it just didn't look right without it, I hope that still counts!
Wow what a lot of waffle! I hope I have not bored you all to tears!
