I was totally stunned on Friday when I saw on the Frosted Designs blog that I was the grand prize winner for the May blog hop! I had told Gorgeous Girl that I was entering and when she asked if I’d win I explained how we enter things just to enjoy playing along and that it was very unlikely that Mummy would win. So I’m now a liar 😀
Then later that afternoon I read on Cathi’s blog that I was the random winner in her blog hop giveaway. You could have knocked me down with a feather. From Frosted Designs I’ve won a chipboard pack from Molossi. Because we are not sure how reliable postage to PNG is I’m having the prize sent to my long-suffering SIL who will hold it for me until I am in Brisbane in November. I’m thrilled to win the prize, but bummed it’s going to be so long before I get to play with it.
Cathi and I have decided to test the PNG postal waters with her package, so that should turn up in a few weeks time. Thank you Cathi and Molossi.
Anyway, so I had the scrapping stuff out and thought I’d have a go at using the Frosted Designs Sketch + things with wings challenge.
We had to follow the sketch and add something with wings. Here is the sketch.
Here is my take on the sketch.
It didn’t quite work out the way I had in mind, but I’m very happy with the outcome. I like simple pages. The green paper is deep stash. I remember buying it when I first got into making cards in 2003 at least it has a useful life now and there is still a tiny bit left to use in another project). I can’t name the other products except for the rub-ons which are from Kaisercraft.
I live in a country with no scrapbooking stores. I’ll pause a minute so some of you can regain your breath 🙂
This means I work from stash and there are some papers that I love and want to stretch as far as possible. The red backing paper is one of these, so I trimmed around the inside rather than just covering the whole thing with paper.
First I traced around the green paper and then I drew lines on all sides 1/2 an inch in from that line.
It’s kind of hard to see the lines on the patterned paper. Then I trimmed along the inside line.
Ready to have the green layered on top, and there is a large centre piece left over to use again on another project.
