Hi folks, it's Friday again, boy these weeks are flying past! It's time to look through your forgotten and neglected stash again, to see what is lurking unused in your craft areas. Try and make something with what you find, and leave a comment attached to this post, and I'll pop along to your blog and take a look at what you've made.
At this time of year, our garden is full of beautiful blossom. The lilac is particularly lovely, we have white and purple varieties.
Anyway, I wanted to make something that refelected this lovely period, and looked through my stamps. I couldn't find anything in my wood mounted stamps, and had just about given up hope, when by chance I spied a cheap little set from Papermania 'Butterfly Medley' which were perfect. I had never used them, so they qualified for today's spot.
I started with a backing paper from K & Co, from the same pad that I used a couple of weeks ago, and used another unused item, my 'sew easy' to mark out the stitch holes, and then hand stitched my backing papers together. I had to use a pricking tool to go through both layers, but I knew about this in advance, as I had read the write ups about the tool. It was still quite a doddle to use. I then took a piece of music paper, with the perfect wording on it, and coloured this with Distress Inks, and added this to my card. I stamped out my images, and coloured them with Polychromos pencils, I love these for the colour choices I have.
The finishing touch was to add some Scrabble pieces, and the card was done.
here Peet's card that I based mine on can be found here and her link is in that post.
Both blogs are fab.
I hope you get a chance to join in with my Forgotten Friday challenge this week, thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
