We have a nice, easy challenge at C.R.A.F.T. this week - pink and brown. You can make anything you like, doesn't have to be a card, as long as it's new work, and is in by 8pm Wednesday evening. There is a fab prize being offered from Just Tracys of flowers, charms, pearls and more. For my card this week, I've combined stamping with distressing and paper weaving. Dps - Basic Grey Sugared Image - it's one I picked up in a sale for £2, and had no labels or anything saying anything about her. Inks - versafine and distress Sentiment and ribbon from stash CS - Bazzil Stickles - Stardust I stamped the image straight onto BG paper, embossed it and coloured the hearts in the hair with a pro-marker, then stickled them. I did a bit of wonky paper weaving with BG papers, then matted it and added the ribbon and sentiment. The hearts were punched out. Distress tool used is by Heidi Grace. The creations by the rest of the DT are stunning, so please take a look.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
