Well I treated myself to an early birthday present yesterday and bought myself a melt pot. I have wanted one for several months and my local craft shop has just got a couple in. So of course, I had to have one. I think you can all guess what I will be doing at the weekend lol.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges. Our theme for this week is:
Something Old, Something New
You can create anything you like to enter the challenge.
We have two great sponsors this week:
The Paper Shelter - prize of a $20 gift certificate
Fred She Said - prize of a $15 gift certificate
Here is my inspiration project using Hearts and Roses image from Fred She Said.
This came as a precoloured image and also came in various colour ways. I decided to go for the gorgeous lavender. I printed the image three times to enable me to layer up the roses. I also went round the edges of the heart with stickles. To make the card blank I used one of my favourite Martha Stewart punches. The gold glittered background is sparkle medium from Imagination Crafts through a stencil. The edges were inked with distress ink. I embossed a panel from white card using my trellis embossing folder and coloured it using distress inks. For embellishments I used ribbon, a pearl heart and some heart gems.
The digi image is my something new and everything else is something old.
Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries. Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges to enter. Don't forget to check out the creations from my fab teamies.
