Well hi everyone, hope you are all well. Half term is over so everyone should be back to normal no? Not in our house - 3 out of 5 of us have horrible colds- me being one :(. For some reason even my teeth hurt!
Anyway enough of my moaning! It's time for a challenge - this time over at Crafting from the Heart where the challenge is Anything Goes/Use punches or dies.
The sponsors are:
Lacy Sunshine offering 3 digis
Stamping Chef offering 3 digis
So, cold or no cold why not join in the fun? This time I chose an image from both sponsors and this is what I came up with for my DT projects:
Using Lacy Sunshine - Lizabeth Butterfly Kisses
I decided to make a bag this time as I sometimes struggle with Gift bags etc for kids and I thought this would make a cute gift bag for a special birthday girl. I used a circle punch to punch out the circles and I used Stampin Up thinlet Butterfly die for the butterflies and a circle die for behind Lizabeth. I added pinflair glaze to make the butterflies shine. The image is coloured with pro markers. The background paper is embossed using a Creative Expressions Mask - The packet doesn't seem to have a name on it though but it is a butterfly/flower frame. The papers are my usual fave - My Mind's Eye. Add a bit of ribbon and voila!
Using Stamping Chef - Fairy Nuff
I thought that for this one I would try my hand at dip dye hair as I have seen it done a few times and thought that this image had some attitude to carry of the look! Actually for my first attempt I was quite pleased however who knows if I can pull it off again! Anyway I coloured her quite brightly - I was thinking Bollywood for some reason!¬ I used of course Wink of Stella on the wings and belt. The rest was pro markers/flex markers. The second pic shows the wings better. When it came to putting the card together, it is fairly basic but I am afraid I am putting that down to my cold - I couldn't think straight to work out what to do! I used spellbinders edgibilities for the green strip and an oval die around Fairy Nuff. I cut round her wings a bit so that they would not be cut off by the die and to allow them to go beyond the oval.
Hope you like x
