Hazel, over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge #127, has asked almost the impossible this week. She has challenged us to use our favourite embellishments ... help! I have so many favourites!
Beccy's Place blogspot. The cottage looks like the perfect country retreat, don't you think :) It's been coloured with ProMarkers - I tried to give it a well weathered look with several shades of brown and I thought the doors just had to be a cheery red.
- white Papermania textured cardstock, trimmed to create an A6 size card
- stamps - Nell's Cottage from Beccy's Place printed out in black, greeting from Hot Of The Press's Magical Christmas set
- ProMarkers in browns, greens, greys, reds and yellows - too many to list. However, if you would like a list of the colours drop me a line and I'll be happy to provide one
- ink pad - Archival Jet Black
- snippets of red and green cardstock for the poinsettia and leaves
- dies - Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia (the two smallest dies) and Marianne Creatables Chinese Rose for the two leaves
- insert - white printer paper cut to A5 and printed with Nell's cottage reduced in size
- embellishments - glue pen and fine white glitter; a topaz coloured rhinestone
Apart from submitting to CHNC #127 as already mentioned, I'm also going to submit this card to Hazel's challenge extra:
CHNC Challenge Extra for June - where the challenge is always anything goes as long as it's Christmas
and, of course,
Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground #75 - where all that Di asks is that we use up some of our snippets on our projects ... here it's the poinsettia and leaves that are made from snippets.
I am happy to report that I'm feeling heaps better and Mr Mojo is back - yes! :) I'm off now to watch Barbara Gray's afternoon slot on C&C - she's going to be using alcohol inks, something I keep forgetting I have in my stash. It was the gelli plate this morning - another item I have yet to really put through it's paces. So many lovely crafting techniques to try and so little time :)
Have a lovely afternoon, what's left of it, and take care everyone.
