Mid Way Inspiration at Imagination Crafts

Morning Folks
Well, it's a lovely sunny morning here so have a feeling it is going to be a hot day at work today.  But only got to see through today and then got three days off.  We are going to Manchester tomorrow ready for our daughter's graduation from university on Wednesday.  I won't have any internet access while I am away so will catch up with you all when we return on Thursday.

Just popping by today with a little reminder about our first challenge over at Imagination Crafts Challenge blog.  The challenge is open until the end of the month and our theme is 
Anything Goes

You can enter any type of project you like for the challenge.  There is a super prize of a £40 gift voucher to Imagination Crafts for our chosen winner.  But to be eligible for the gift voucher you must use at least one Imagination Crafts product in your creation.  What a super prize.  A great incentive to get out those Imagination Crafts products and get creating.

How I created my card:
1.  Sponge through the honeycomb stencil onto yellow card using distress ink to create the background. 
2.  Use sparkle medium with the honeycomb stencil onto acetate.  When dry cut out little parts of the honeycomb pattern and stick to the background.
3.  Mount onto black card and add some ribbon to the side.
4.  Stamp the daisy decoupage stamp twice onto white card.  Colour the daisy image with promarkers and decoupage together.  Glitter the centre of the daisy and add the image to the card.

The daisy decoupage stamp, honeycomb stencil and sparkle medium can all be purchased at Imagination Crafts.

Here is another couple of views and close ups.

The design team have been hard at work creating some awesome projects for your inspiration.  Just pop by the Imagination Crafts Challenge blog and take a look.  

You have until the end of the month to enter the challenge. Look forward to seeing you there.

A Creative Romance - Ribbon or twine
Stamping Sensations - Summer
Top Tip Tuesday - Hexagons and/or circles
Charisma Cardz - No designer paper
Crafty Ribbons - Anything goes with ribbon
One Stop - Summer colours
