They are currently looking for a couple of designers to join the team so if you are interested then please see the challenge blog for details :-)
For this hop the theme is Yesterday ,, the challenge is to make a card with a theme of yesterday, so you can have a vintage theme or use a stamp that is not the latest stamp on the block but one of those real old favourites. You could choose a past ABC Challenge theme just let us know which challenge and the date it went live. !!
I chose U for UNUSUAL FOLD
The DT all have a sponsored candy on their blogs, so lots of prizes along the way :-) My candy is sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp !!
This card is quite small ,, only 4x4 inches so I had to choose a smallish image ,,,, House Mouse Confetti Rain ,,,, perfect fit !!! I haven’t inked this one is ages so it was about time :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Wild Honey Distress Ink. The papers are Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime and I sewed all the edges on my machine. I stamped a Penny Black mouse footsteps along one side and used a gorgeous Prima Pearl Swirl and Calcutta flower on the other.
Now this is where I went horribly wrong ,,, I thought it looked a bit plain and as I am a GD I wanted to make a good impression (lol ) so I added a Martha Stewart PATP border, and cut out a frame for the image using a Spellbinders Die.
Oohh that was better ,,, I thought ,,, until I tried to stand it up !! hmmm ,, I have to make a little stand at the front to prop it up. Now I could have kept that snippet of info to myself ,,, but ,,, we all learn by our mistakes so I am sharing mine with you
If you would like a chance to win a fab Hero Art set from Simon Says Stamp then please leave me a comment and a link to your blog with Mr Linky :-)
I hope you enjoy the hop ,, from here you need to hop on over to the super talented ALI'S BLOG and see her gorgeous creation :-)
