Our lovely Chris is hosting this week’s challenge at Fab’n Funky – and she has chosen the theme – No Patterned Papers – which means no designer or downloaded papers – so you can have fun making your own with stencils, inks etc.
We have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge –
Who are giving the winner 3 images of their choice – up to $10 in value
You can see all the fantastic inspiration from my team mates on the Fab’n Funky blog – which we hope will inspire you to join in our challenge. This challenge will last for 3 weeks – so please post your entries by 8pm on August 11th.
The Design Team were given their choice of images to play with and I chose Mad Hatter.
I made my background paper by covering a piece of card with glycerine and rubbing Distress Ink in Fired Brick over it, swirling it in places to give a random effect. I have seen this technique on Create and Craft and the glycerine makes the DI go on more smoothly. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics – glittered the water from the bottle, and added dots of liquid pearls to the mushroom. I cut the image out a second time and fussy cut the playing card shapes – which I extended and coloured – and put onto pieces of card embossed with a dots folder and then cut with an X-cut die. The ribbons are from my stash.
I would like to enter my card into these challenges –
