Time for a new Challenge at C.R.A.F.T. and "Bonfire Night" seems appropriate - but we have been kind and added the options of fireworks and Celebration (which could really cover just about everything!) This weeks winner will recieve a fab selection of quality die-cuts from Susie of Die Cut Dreams. Pop by her shop - she has lots of other crafting goodies aswell. For my card I found a picture of fireworks on one of those colouring in sites (by Elizabeth Dulemba). I've coloured the image, added glossy accents and some gold glitter. Round the outside is black soot distress ink. The background is a mixture of pearly pens and starburst stains, all stamped over the top and mounted on a black 6 x 6" card. This was way out of my comfort zone, but you can just make a celebration card. My card actually looks quite nice in real life with all the shine and glitter, but none of this comes across in the picture I'm afraid. Please enter new work only by 8pm next Wednesday.
Sorry I'm so late with my posts today, I have a sick son at home, and I've just managed to settle him down.
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.
