A Couple of Challenges
Less is More Challenge run by my friend Chrissie, which often challenges me! This week was no exception and for some reason the lime and black colour scheme completely had me stumped! So this entry is in the nick of time and after a few false starts... Stampin' Up paper (I think), Memory Box labrador die and Hero Arts sentiment. I'm looking forward to a day out at Ally Pally with Chrissie tomorrow and hope to meet lots of other Limettes there :).
CD Sunday Challenge each week and this week I was tempted into buying a CD of window images from Ebay. Unfortunately the postman has not co-operated and I don't yet have my disk :(. So, Plan B was to look through my disks and I found a lovely window with herbs drying on my Jane Shasky CD. I cut out and decoupaged the herbs onto the window for a start, made it into an easel card with some garden raffia on the base and added the little detail images that are printed on the image sheet. Decided to use some of my precious lace for a "curtain" to accentuate the window effect. The lace was added after my friend thought the window was upside down on the card!
Anyhow my last card is also from the Jane Shasky CD, I fell for this image and had to print it off when I was looking for window images! A MS border, some twine and a Craftwork Cards sentiment finish off this card.
