Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

CMLI Challenge

This week’s challenge was set by the lovely Rosie, we had a sketch to follow and we had the twist of using cardboard! Eeeek! Anyway, as usual the dt came up with some stunning examples and we all heaved a sigh of relief.

I managed to use a cardboard envelope as the boxes I had were too thick and I wouldn’t have been able to put them through the bug.
Note to self.. don’t use extra sticky glue again – I wanted to make sure the image would stick to the cardboard, I used glue one side and pads the other as the cardboard was raised. The glue made the image ripple and bubble so it looks pants now.. Sad smile

Materials used, pink petticoat papers, promarkers , cardboard, spots and dots embossing folder, twine and buttons/feathers from stash.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Crafts and Me - stamp something
Craft your Passion - anything goes
Dream Valley Challenges -stamp something
Papertake Weekly -anything goes
Poodles Parlour - anything goes
Stamp Something -something punched
Shabby Tea Room - embossing
