Well this week at ICS, the theme is called "any sketch goes" which means you can use any sketch from another challenge blog to create your card/project so that gives you loads of flexibility. I have used the sketch from last weeks challenge over at Papertake Weekly . . .
and here is how I interpreted it . .
Papers: Bird Song by First Edition
Postcard, ornate border, lock & key from The Graphics Fairy
Butterfly stamp: Crafty Individuals
Pearl Gems: MEI Flowers
Floral seem binding ribbon, skeleton leaves and elastic from my stash
The images from The Graphics Fairy have been printed onto Safmat so that I can use them on what ever material I want and also where ever I want . . . this is the beauty of Safmat . . . . a crafting necessity that I could not live without now . . . I know . . . a touch melodramatic but sooooo true!
Okay, I admit that my text isn't in the middle but the butterfly is . . . but when I had it the other way round, it just didn't look right/balanced . . . you know what I mean . . ! ? ! I loved making this card as it came together so quickly.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
The Graphics Fairy
Craft Your Passion - anything goes plus distressing
Heart Song Inspirations - anything goes
The Pink Elephant - Anything goes
The Shabby Tea Room - theme is "time flies" with photo inspiration
Papertake Weekly - anything goes with a "new" twist. My "new" thing is the fab 1st Edition papers.
Well back off to the crafty table to make oodles more "thank you" cards . . . so watch this space as I have decided to send individual cards to people this year rather than making "a mass make" . . . I wanted to keep it personal and heart felt.
Must also catch up with my blogging as it has been an age since I sat down and had a good mooch around blog land . . . oohhh how I have missed that.
Take care everyone,
