The challenge this week on Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight is to use bottlecaps on your creation - well that was a real challenge for me and way out of my comfort zone. First I had to go and fish a bottlecap out of the waste bin and clean it up but then I really struggled to come up with an idea of how to use it!
I ended up making a tag, for which I started with pearlised card and coloured it all over with distress inks, sprayed it with glimmer mist and then stamped a few images and words directly onto the card. I then stamped the main Paperartsy image on a piece of white cardstock, coloured it with Promarkers and trimmed it close to the lines. After sticking it to the card I printed out the face and coloured it again and punched it with a 1" circle punch which fitted inside the bottlecap, I finished it off with Glossy Accents and stuck it on to the figure with some fibre strands attached behind it to resemble hair. The tag was finished off with some distressed multi coloured ribbon.
My project is entered for the following challenges:
