Hello to one and all
I’m doing a happy limp today, should have been a happy dance but I ran 12 km last night and the old calf muscles won’t allow me to boogie.
The reason for the happy limp is that I won at City Crafters for their Fantastic Plastic challenge , winning feels really good especially as I’ve not been back blogging that long, what can I say those ladies obviously have great taste !
Another reason for the jigging about is that a fantastic new challenge has started run by Silhouette UK and for those of you who know me know how much I love my Cameo you can understand my joy. The new DT has just been announced and what a talented gaggle of gorgeous girls they are ( try saying that after a few Gin and tonics )
To cut a long story short the card I’ve made ( yes there is a card to follow ) fits very nicely thank you very much into both challenges, mainly because I made it fit !
Silhouette are asking us to use the above image which just so happens to be a free one and can be found over at the Silhouette store.
City Crafters want us to use Polka Dots
Finally my card
I used the image to cut the top layer of black card, then went back into the design released the compound path and filled in the empty space with patterned paper from my Cameo fill box, printed that out and cut just around the edge of the flower to give me a base, I used double sided foam to pop it up and inserted the printed flower back into the negative space. Clear as mud so far……….
The Black outline of the flower was placed over the top and I added a button to hold the whole thing together, the sentiment is also from the Silhouette store. I do hope you will pop over to Silhouette UK and to City Crafters both DT’s have amazing and inspirational projects for your delectation.
Right that’s all from me I can hear my bread burning in the oven.
