Been a while since I posted, so sorry for that but have been very busy over the Easter hols catching up on all the work I missed while I was off sick. So now it's back to school and the uphill struggle to the end of the school year and those well-earned Summer hols.
Anyway I participated in the Cup Challenge over on the In Love With Stamping website on 3rd April. It was great fun but very stressful. At 5pm we all registered and were randomly put into teams - I was in the Owls. Starting at 7pm, a challenge was issued every hour until 11pm. The teams had to design and upload as many cards as they could within the hour. The team with the most uploaded cards won. You can see them all in the ILWS gallery here and now here are my efforts!
The first challenge was to use the babywipe technique. Now if you've never heard of that, you get a dried babywipe and dot colours from your re-inkers onto it, making your own multi-coloured inkpad. Here's my results.
I used re inkers from Earth Elements. The butterfly card was made with ruby red, certainly celery and very vanilla cardstock. I used the Leaves a la Carte jumbo wheel with Mellow Moss ink for the background and Flight of the Butterfly stamps.
The snails came from the new Fox & friends stamp set, the card stock is cameo coral, very vanilla and old olive. The greeting is from Cheer & Wishes.
Challenge 2 was 'Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue'. The borrowed could be anything crafty borrowed or something 'borrowed from around the house. Luckily I'd borrowed the Garden Whimsy stamp set so didn't have to do anything bizarre!
So the stamp set is Garden Whimsy (borrowed), the old is the backing paper (non SU), the new is the brad from the Pretties kit and the blue.......
The card stock is night of navy and the Hello is from Basic Phrases, stamped and punched out with the word window punch.
