today is Wednesday,
time for a new challenge
over at Creative Inspirations.
This week, we'd like to see your
Make something using various shades
of the same colour!!
We have a delicious prize from
Dotty About Crafts this week
and the works from the DT are exquisite,
I hope you can stop by and take a looksie,
better yet, join in!!!
I've used a Whiff of Joy image that Sue stamped for me, she also supplied the doily and fabric flowers, Sue to the rescue, once again!! This is my second go with WOJ but already, I feel a great love coming on, lol. The DP is K & Company, punches used are martha stewart and ek success retro flower and fern. I've distressed in Faded Jeans and the shadowy aura looking background with a Milled Lavender Brushed Corduroy mixture. I picked up that most excellent shadowing technique from Mary, you will find loads of inspiration and techniques on her blog My Cardz, My Passion, My Therapy, and although my cloudy background thingy isn't nearly as fab as what you'll find her doing, she was definitely the source of inspiration behind it/them. More handmade scrolls, hahaha, I likes what I likes... April will have a weekly pull-off type of calender rather than the list on other pages. The raindrops are gooped in Stickles and I went inside the circles on the embrella with a white gel pen, then I distressed the entire embrella in Old Paper to give it some age, then I added Liquid Pearls in pewter to the hardware. The pictures all stink but I can't seem to get it right, I will have to call this one a loss and move on with life, lol.
Challenges for this one:
ABC Challenge where O is for One Paper
Stamp With Fun is stitching this week,
sketch is from The Pink Elephant.
I have Stefancyfied my May calender page, and since it fits the monochrome challenge as well, I figured I'd share it. Again, haha. There's tooshie Tilda, coloured in distress inks, the flowers are a medley, I can't remember there are so many mixed together now, eek!! Some punches, oak leaf and branch by Martha Stewart, a scroll, of course, and viola. My son helped too, do you see all the slice marks on the calender area? He ran this through the paper cutter a couple of times, thanks buddy... They are so fast when it comes to what they AREN'T supposed to touch!!
I hope you'll have time to pop your entry in over at Creative Inspirations this week!! Thanks for your visit,
