Good Evening bloggers, a mixed weather day today.
Eventually got around to some crafting this evening and made this little creation for several challenges using the Our Creative Corner current sketch as my baseline, although I did swap over the brad flower bellies as I crop-o-diled them the wrong way round, lol.
After finding the DP in amongst my stash I remembered that the Creative Card Crew had a 'dotty' challenge going on.
The ABC Challenge was 'Q' for 'quotation'. My good friend Diane http://inkymeanderings.blogspot.com/ gave me this U/M quotation by Hans Christian Anderson last week so I tried it out here. It reads "Just living is not enough said the butterfly. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower". I stamped it onto the reverse of a small doilie and edged it with Copics.
The butterfly and the flower were stamped onto Bazzill chips that had been coloured with Adirondack Lemonade dabber, and then edged with faux stitching.
The colours used were to fit in with the Playdate Cafe Challenge #21 to use pale pink, medium pink and pale yellow.
Anyway, I hope you like it and the challenge links are below, x
- cockney blonde
- My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.
