Imagination Crafts New Challenge

Pinch punch its the first of the month!!! Wow - July ..... how did that happen? So being the first I have my first project to share with you for imagination-crafts challenge- the theme this month is anything goes and remember if you use Imagination Craft products in your make you'll go into the draw to win £40 to spend in store - now that can't be bad! Here's my make:


I started off by using the bundled sage and shaded lilac distress inks to make the background then inked over with a script stamp. Next I took the Wisteria panel stencil Imagination Crafts and added a combination of amethyst and sage green sparkle medium through it then left it to dry.


Next I made the full background by brayering lilac silkies onto card and leaving this to dry. Once everything was dry I cut and assembled, adding the lace and sentiment last.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


Thanks for looking today. Here's a couple of pictures from sports day:

 here's Lucy at the egg and spoon - and there's me in the background!



this is Penny at the long Jump.

They had a lovely day - Penny managed to come third in the skipping race - but poor old Lucy was last  in both her races!!!! Nevermind!

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a great Tuesday!

Big Hugs
