I really liked the look of this challenge, but why I chose pistachio...okay, green, I don't know, probably because I had quite a few bits, (I never throw anything out) and thought, what a clever way to use them up without looking too much like a scrooge! ! I used my Woodware punch (the yellow one) to punch out a variety of cream and pistachio papers from Pink Petticoat and edged then in Blue Iris then followed the sketch from the Trim C.R.A.F.T Challenge. I keep meaning to have a go, plan it all out and then realise I'm about two weeks too late! This time, I think I've managed it. I've never actually used Ella the Elephant before and I've had her for ages...she was beginning to look depressed! First I coloured her in a light grey and then filled her toe nails in with pink using 'Paint', on my laptop. (It's surprising how many people don't realise they have Paint on their computer already, look in Accessories) Then I printed her 'dress' again on some flowery paper, cut it out and with a smidgen of silicone glue decoupaged it and the little bow over the main Ella (I put the bow on her tail, but I guess it would've looked better on her head!) I also added some micro fine glitter to her toenails and bow. I will probably add some pink fiber or ribbon before I send it off to whoever's next on my birthday list, not sure yet. I'm making my mum-in-laws card right now... well, thinking about it. It's her Birthday to day! (ARrRgGH!! HELP!!) I can see she'll be getting it still sticky with glitter glue! I was thinking of using the same idea, but in pink, on a much bigger card, with scallops and a different image... more ribbon... loads of glitter...in fact a completely different card... sort of! Well, here's my Challenge Card... anymore waffle and it'll be tomorrow!! Oho~ before I go, nearly forgot, a BIG (((wave))) to my new follower!! Rose who has a fairly new blog with some lovely pictures of her lovely dogs and some very clever cards with tiny little knitted jumpers on them! They're sooo cute! (Either that or she's like me and shrinks all her family's clothing!!) Pop over and say hi!Right, it's time for a frothy coffee (topped with chocolate of course!) and a chocolate bisqweet, so see you later...thanks for stopping by!
