Ok! I'm not being rude! It's true! Well, sort of! The Challenge over on Quirky Crafts has started. Did anyone guess what it is?? Nice and easy, with a little twist...
Ohoooo sounds a bit saucy... Anyway!! This weeks Challenge is being sponsored by the fabulous...thing that would normally (by normal people) either be thrown away or put into the recycle bin (or bag in my case)
I started off with a bent blank card, which I'd put by to use the card as card and not as a card, if you get my meaning, inked the edges with TH distressing ink, then found a scrap of Summer Driggs paper to cover that, and set about it with more ink and a nail file. I then decided to keep with the Summer Driggs papers, (freebies) but fixed those lovely heart papers (dance with me) on to some black 'felty type' paper, which was used as stuffing in a parcel, not nice enough to use on it's own, but too good to throw away... I then added a cardboard heart, a lovely red ribbon from 'ParkHouse' jewellery, no..not mine, in the bin at one of my other houses. (not my house!)
The tiny red hearts I started punching out years ago. Any time I had a nice box or packet too nice to throw away, I'd set to it with my punches. Most of these were Easter egg or perfume boxes. On some of the hearts you can see writing, I think it sort of 'adds' to it! (I bet you try to read it!) The flowers were fun to make, a bit fiddly, mainly because the punches didn't like the newspaper (too thin) so I punched out the newspaper, the brown parcel paper and the cellophane sweet wrappers at the same time, after I'd inked, scrunched them all up and then sprayed them with my only bottle of Cosmic Shimmers. The golden hearts were cut using my BigShot from... photo glue tubes, empty of course! Oh yes, the little Raccoon is Cupid Ridley and he can be found Here.
There you go! Sorry about the odd sized writing, blogger just HATEs it if I paste and copy!! (and I've already typed it all out again! Anyway!!! Pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in.
Now I did find some challenges for this card and now I'm back from skiving off somewhere I'll add them! One more thing, because I made this card last week, I've changed the colour of Ridley (as I now have a darker grey Promaker!) I've also added mock stitching, Stickles red glitter to the flowers and added a sentiment. The Font is called Pea Leslie's Happy Font and you can download it for free Here. Right! That's about it!
Oh one more thing, ever fancied drawing your own doodles? Try it here, go on, it's fun!!
