I nearly didnt make it this time! It is that day int he year where you spend all your time fulfilling a list – the School Uniform list – with a grumpy teenager in tow as well. To be fair my Youngest Son wasn’t too bad this time. Some years have been horrendous but this year I got “yep it fits, no don’t buy a jumper, I am never going to wear it, not to gym kit, yes to shirts and trousers and yes, I will try one of each on, but only one!” I felt likeI had somehow won a battle although I am a long ways off winning the war on his bedroom!
Okay, what do I have for you this time? I have a tag for you. It the Challenge time over at That Craft Place and the challenge is “inspired by Music”. Hmmmm. I confess to really being challenged. I have a great image that has music notes attached. which I thought would be fab, but after I had started colouring it in, I didnt like it and it ended up in the bun! After a quick chat with my pal Susan, who told me to just put on some music I came up with this. The bizarre bit is that I was listening to Abba!!!
So i have used Pan Pastels to make a smooth creamy background and spritz it with Perfect Pearls. I then tore off a piece of pre embossed Kraft card and buffed it with a Navy blue ink pad so that the embossing shows up more. The snowflakes are dies from Joy Crafts and I used the negative paper with a VersaMark pen and some PanPastel to put some snowflakes into the background. The letters were some I had and I inked them up, covered them in Glossy Accents and sprinkled them with fine glitter. I also added some ribbons and the magnolia image…..Here are some closeups….
I really hope you like this and think about having a go at the challenge yourself. The Guys over at That Craft Place would love to help you chose what you are going to need to complete your projects and don’t forget t o share your make with us when you are done! We would love to see it!
So Until next time remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx
