Morning everyone, today sees the start of a new challenge called River of Creativity, it's a monthly challenge which starts on the 5th of the month and ends the last day of each month. It's not just about cardmaking and we are encouraging all types of craft, so I do hope you will pop over to the challenge blog and see what it's all about and even better join in as well.
The challenge blog link is above and there is a presence on SM as well. Those who know me are aware I'm not into FB and other SM so I don't have a clue (or any interest in finding out come to that) about hashtags and the like, but I'm told this link will mean something to lots of you: #ROCsunshine01.
Zoe asked me if I would like to be a Guest Designer for the start of her challenge and I was happy to accept, that turned into an invitation to be a full time DT and as I love her concept for the challenge said a rather speedy yes please.
I was immediately drawn to the theme for the first challenge which is 'Sunshine' so had a lovely inky day creating and came up with this. It was inspired by a new Clarity sunray stencil although I have to admit to being very disappointed when it arrived. It was advertised as a 7x7 stencil, the heavy duty Mylar is indeed that size, but the actual stencil is a small pop out section in the middle measuring just 2.5" x 3.5"......misleading advertising comes to mind.
So I adapted my thinking a little and started by spraying Dylusions Pure Sunshine through the stencil onto some Chocolate Baroque black and white paper (very similar to rice paper but stronger) then stamped the CB Poppies around he edge using Versafine Clair Tulip and added a bit more colour with a Distress Marker. The sentiment is another from one of my own inspiration quote stamp sets available from Chocolate Baroque.
Also a reminder that Chocolate Baroque's Lesley will be on The Craft Store on Friday with shows at 9am and 1pm, above is one of my shares from the show.
Hope you all have a good Wednesday and I really hope you will join our challenge this month and will be popping round to see your entries.
