Good morning lovelies - when this post goes live I will be sitting on a coach - nearly all the way to Newcastle with any luck - getting ready for the Great North Run. Here's hoping the high winds and rain that are forecast don't arrive until later in the day!!!
Todays first post is a reminder of the challenge over at imagination-craftschallenges this month. The challenge is butterflies and to be in with a shot at the prize which is £40 worth of IC goodies - you need to use something from imagination crafts!
I made a double side stepper card using my hougie board. Then I made a distressed background using blues and cream and green. Did some background stamping with a script stamp - and then I used an Imagination Crafts Stencil (here) with black embossing paste. When dry I cut the panel into three and added to the stepper. I stamped the sentiment onto neenah card and distressed with tumbled glass then cut with a spellbinders die. Then I stamped some butterflies from the butterfly decoupage stamp (here) from Imagination crafts and added them to the card.
I will add some challenges later.
Thanks for dropping by today and thanks to the lovely people out there who have supported me in this run - in both words and sponsorship. It really does mean a lot to me!
