THE CCC exchange:
I am really enjoying the CCC [International Card Chain Challenge] idea. Getting a card from someone you don't know & sending one somewhere 'out there' really tickles my fancy!
The March reveal & info on the exchange is HERE.
For March I used the sketch:
I used scrap paper on the diagonal for the bottom bit:
The 'For You' is a Silly cut, coated with Glimmer Glaze. A bit different!
I usually use it for 'splots', like the top of the card....but I quite like it brushed on like this for a change!!
I didn't show you my February card - I had done a whole post! So I'll add it in here, too.
Too much scrapping and not enough blogging days!!
I chose to use the sketch:
AND use some twine.
The feather is one I picked up outside our house. I really wanted to use it - comes from one of the wild ducks that live around abouts:)
I had a plain kraft button, so stamped it myself. Happy it didn't smudge. PHEW!!!
My whole card. Thanks Yvonne Y for the Black Lava stuff. Great for using with a stencil:)
See the background? It's actually old copy paper that I randomly had stamped off with my new 'discover' Rubber Dance Stamp...so I gessoed over it, then went to work creating more texture! Waste not, want not, right??!!!!
Speaking of waste not....my long time GF sent me a few bits & bobs [thanks Sue McB!!], so I gathered them together like a jigsaw puzzle, trying to arrange them into some sort of order:
Now, I had thought the floral stems look pretty neat, but once I got it on the pink bg I turned it over!
Used lots of little pieces to layer up the flower - addded some sequins & some Glimmer Glaze splots!
And close up:
This isn't for any challenge or any reason, other than I like to challenge myself to take stuff & make it into something!
Do you do that?
Thanks for taking the time to read & comment on my posts - I do appreciate it:)
Cheers, Lizzy ♥♥♥
