Now I know I am late in the day posting this but I did schedule the post for 9.30am and Mr Blogger didn't post it, amd the same happend with the challenge blog post that Claire scheduled. Naughty Mr Blogger!
Anyway this week the Challenge is BABY BLUE. This doesn't have to be a baby card although you can make it for a baby if you want, it can just be the colour baby blue or whatever other ideas you can think of with that theme. Do you notice I have not offered any more ideas? That's because I don't have any lol, but I'm sure some of your clever crafters can :) This weeks prize a set of the new Monsters download which will be on sale in the shop later this week. I haven't even seen them yet apart from a sneeky peek on Claires card for this weeks challenge, so you will be one of the first people to have them if you win this weeks challenge!
So here's what I came up with
I have used one of the Eastern birdies. There is 3 birds in this set. I have used one of the others and coloured it all with different coloured glitter (must put it on a card and get it on here), it looks really nice. So just shows that there is loads you can do with these birdies. I have just kept this one blue though for the purpose of the challenge. Ok and a liitle yellow but I couldn't give him blue legs now could I!
The paper I have used to stick the image on is from the DCVW Garden Party Premium stack and is glittered just to adda bit of bling. The other two papers which I love both of are freebie downloads! I downloaded the blue and white one the other day but forgot to take a note of where i go tit from...again! It could possibly be from Summer Driggs? I'm really not sure though. The other one was a set of mulberry look paper that I downlaoded yonks ago and have no idea whatsoever where it's from, but it really does look like mulberry paper with all the fibres showing. I printed them both out on thick shimmery paper and they both look lovely IRL. I will defo use these again :)
I have used my Stampin Up and Dovecraft punches again for the flowers and added some spacers and a feather charm from my stash.
I really do hope some of you will join in with the challenge this week. The Little Yellow Company have some new realses coming your way soon (they are not birdies) so keep an eye out for them.
A special thank you to my lovely friend Lorraine who I think was practising being an owl last night (she will know what I mean) and made a card for the last challenge. thank you hunni , you really are the best :)
And a reminder before I go that The Little Yellow Company has candy just now. Pop over for a chacne to win all 3 sets of digi images. Eastern Birds that I have used here, Quirky Birds and The Singers set. And while your there, grab their logo and tell everyone about our new challenge blog and all the great images :)
