Oh I was glued to the TV this past weekend! And nothing to do with the winter Olympics - I was freezing just looking at the slalom Skiing a few days ago, and my daughter insisted on watching Dancing on Ice the other night - shivering with the cold! No, I was watching the fabulous Julie Hickey on Create & Craft here in the UK on tv demonstrating a new kit for Craftwork Cards. Lots of lovely inspiration projects from their design team and the only problem I had was a lack of cash to spend! So, to remedy that, I got out an older paper kit from Craftwork Cards and made a wall hanging to show you today for Crafting By Designs.
We have a new challenge starting today and we'd love to see your spring colours! I have used an image from Lia Stampz of a Muffin with two cute little mice! I dug out the Craftwork Cards 'Sweet Pea' in Pink paper pad from last year and coloured my image in pinks and lilac promarkers to match the papers. I decided on an 8x8 wall hanging - this was some A4 chipboard packaging that I cut down to match the size of the papers! I made up some of the matching Sweet Pea paper flowers and cut a sheet of the paper into 4 smaller 4x4inch squares. Julie had demonstrated a fabulous flower at the weekend and I had a go! This is the big flower you see on the bottom left.
I hope you like it, I hope you can join us in our challenge this week!
Thanks for looking!
