Firstly I have my sample layout for Out of the Hat. This month's challenge is to use bling on a boys page, minimum of 3 circles and staples.
I had chosen the photo and decided to use the papers from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey collection and it wasn't until I was putting it together that I realised the die cut sticker set had the words "You're the Coolest" in it ..... just perfect for the pic!!!
I have also been working on some ATC's for various swaps. This one is for Uproar and the theme was "A Splash of Colour", background was done with homemade alcohol inks on glossy cardstock, butterflies stamped on acetate and the scroll is silver ink that has been embossed in clear.
And this one is for the "Shabby Chic" swap at Challenge Chics. Edges are embossed with Queens Gold emboss, fence is Collections chippie that has been distress painted with distress ink rubbed into the cracks. The small roses I made myself from pink photocopy paper .... the smallest was a 3/4 inch circle!!
