Happy Easter everyone-hopefully the sun will make an appearence later but at the moment it looks a bit murky out there.....we will have to do our Easter Eggs hunt indoors at this rate!
Right, another Sunday brings another challenge over on Dottie's World and this week it was Nicola who put us through our paces.
I want to see completely hand made cards, no bought backing papers or embelishments, the odd ribbon is fine though, but if you're gonna use backing papers I want you to have made it, if you use embelishments I want you to have made it,not just bought and stuck on and of course a Charmed Card and Crafts Download.
Now once again, my mojo and confidence has vanished, perhaps it's lurking somewhere with my missing kitchen cupboards.....but I struggled, dithered around nearly all day yesterday and just couldn't decide what to do...then I decide to use an image of Holly I had already printed and coloured and some text paper that I had previously attacked with some distress inks and perfect pearls.
The handmade flower embellies were stamped using a freebie from Craft Stamper magazine a few months ago, then I noticed the similarity in one of my Hero Art stamps- Pocketful o' posies, so I stamped a floral border across the bottom. To give a bit more depth and interest I added a bit of colour with a copic marker and a bit of depth with some liquid pearls.
Some great inspiring ideas over at Dottie's World, make sure you go check them out.
Once again, I'll wish you a very Happy Easter.
