I was sooooo super excited to have won the challenge over on Sweet Pea Stampers last week, my prize was a wonderful Elaine Cox stamp (which is still waiting to be inked up) and a week as GDT. Have you seen the DT creations over there? They are truly a talented bunch of ladies and always so inspiring!
The new challenge which starts today is a recipe of NO patterned paper, 1 butterfly, two Sweet Pea images and 3 different embellishments, which to be honest when I first got the email from the lovely Pascale I though "YIKES, what on earth shall I do?". However inspiration suddenly came to me and this is what I came up with:
The background was made using normal printer paper scrunched up several times, swiped with faded jeans Distress Inks and spritzed with glamour mist (which you can't see on the photo) and water. Same thing when making the "rocks" but this time using vintage photo and antique linen. The images are coloured in using Promarkers. The stamped "seaweed" are Basic Grey Insignia, the butterfly stamp on the right hand side is Artemio from The Altered Element. I have added a seashell charm and added tiny beads to the wire, leaves are from a silk flower arrangement which I have taken apart LOL!
There are THREE FABBY prizes on offer this week and some great examples from the DT and the lovely Susie Sugar.
Now onto my news... As you know I am sooo uncool and jump about with excitement, well you can imagine this weekend I have been on the ceiling LOL since the (also excitable) Pascale asked me to join the Sweet Pea Stampers DT whoohoooooo!!!! Of course I stayed calm, cool and collected (NOT) and took ages deliberating (NOT - more like the length of time to hit the reply button). I have had Pascale jumping up and down with me and I secretly think she is going to use me as a way of keeping fit LOL - a cyber personal trainer. So from next week I will officially be on the DT!!!!!!
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Tuesday Taggers - Make a scene
Flutterby Wednesdays - Open theme but must have butterfly, fairy or angel
ABC Challenge - Y is for "You and Me" two images on a stamp or two stamps on a card
