Whilst thinking about what to set for the challenge at the One Stop Craft Challenge this week I really wanted to set something completely different as the theme. What was right in front of me at the time? A newspaper. Right - that'll do, I thought. I haven't seen any challenge blog setting a challenge to use newspaper.
However, reality did creep in a bit so I widened the theme to include dps with text on them, or maybe even a stamp with text on it (not a sentiment - more like text in the background) - you could even use the cuttlebug script folder. But for those of you that really do want a challenge - try using newspaper.
I used newspaper to make the flowers and leaves. You can see how to make these flowers with Rach's fantastic video tutorial here. Thank you so much for doing that tutorial sweetie!
I also had another go at colouring my Whimsy image with distress inks. I'm really getting to like that medium.
Okay, you creative and crafty people. I hope you'll join us and wow us all with the amazing creations you make again this week. Shelley has put up a beautiful wood mounted corset stamp as the prize for one lucky winner.
Well, it's the perfect day for me to get holed up in my craft room and make a start on all my DT items for this week - yes it's a bit wet and miserable where I am. With weather like that I shouldn't get too distracted ;o) Now...where did I put my mojo?
Thanks for looking,
