Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We had a good time last night celebrating a friend's birthday. Lots of good food and the wine and beer were flowing. Didn't get to bed till quite late but still up with the birds this morning. I just can't lie in, even when I want to.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Hobbycutz Challenges. Our theme for this fortnight is:
Create your own background
Our fab sponsor for this challenge is Crafts and Me. The design team were generously given some images to work with and here is my inspiration project.
The image was coloured in using promarkers and I added some glamour dust for her wings. This was ten matted onto black and red cardstock.
For the background I cut a piece of white cardstock and attacked it with my distress inkS. I used Fired Brick, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed. After inking I spritzed with water to give a mottled effect. The flourish is a stamp set from Inkadinkado and was stamped with Fired Brick distress ink. I mounted this onto black and red card. For embellishments I used some tulle, a hand made flower and some sparkly gems from Hobby House. The little words are from a Woodware stamp set - Useful creative words.
