I've been absent from my blog for a week or so - been off to Hampshire and Essex visiting family - so have a bit of catching up to do.
Firstly I have my Creative Inspirations DT card to share and this week's challenge is to recycle an element for your card, in my case I have made flowers from an old book that I rescued from a box of children's books heading for the charity shop.
I punched several 5 petal flower shapes for each flower, cutting off petals from each layer until I only had 2 left on flower. I inked the petals and spritzed them with glimmer mist then scrunched them up before drying them with my heat gun and gluing the layers together. I finished them off with a small punched circle and a tiny brad. The really sweet image is from one of this week's sponsors Meljen's Designs, I have used Papermania backing papers and the sketch is from Friday Sketchers.
Also entering the challenges at:
Cute Card Thursday - Whateva
Meljen's - Clean & Simple
I Did It - Cute, Cute, Cute
My good news is that I have been asked to join the Design Team at Crafty Creations and of course I'm delighted and looking forward to joining the girls there and to my first Wednesday challenge with them!
I have also just added some new stylised flowers to my digi stamp blog and am heading off to my craft desk now to ink them up and make some samples. These are the new designs - what do you think?
