We had a fun and exciting challenge organised by the very talented Shalini of Craft Curry! She sent out crafty scraps to all the participants, who, in turn, created scrappy masterpieces with them - I am not kidding! You've got to hop over and see what everyone has come up with. And of course, vote for your top 3 :)
The rules were simple. We could use:
(Content from Shalini's blog)
- Card Stock
- Color pens/Markers/Pens and other writing instruments
- Your tools like the scissors, punching machines, die cutters, etc… Only the tools/machines can be used… what you use them on, has to be either the above card stock or the scraps…
- Only one stamp allowed
- No image stamp - only borders, sentiments, flourishes etc allowed
This is what I received from Shalini:
I fell in love with the patterned paper the moment I saw it! It was a gorgeous green. But my excitement was kind of short lived :-p and I was soon tensely wondering what to create so that each element was given full justice! I finally settled on a shaped card:
Though I have made circle cards before, I am never too confident with them. I was very nervous (don't ask me why) while making this card and till I sent out the pic to Shalini; DH didn't really say anything about the card but my darling son was pretty impressed :D
I almost forgot the acetate and the scalloped acetate circle was a last minute addition; it looked too plain so I pulled out (literally!) beads from the lace and stuck it on to the acetate!
This card was inspired by Mojo Monday Sketch 180.
Run along and vote for the best! :)
