The latest challenge at DCM is to make a card that uses scraps from shop-bought cards, to recycle elements. "We want you to have a look at old shop bought greetings cards, wrapping paper or gift bags which you have received in the past and recycle any elements to make a card of your own."
I recycle a padded heart (centre of the card), mounting it on Rouge de Garance paper and adding a BasicGrey Two Scoops swirl highlighted with glitter.
My Favourite Place
Over at UKS, the monthly team challenge is for a layout on the theme of my favourite place that uses stitching. My entry shows us at one of our favourite places, Epping Forest. I wetted and sanded the edges of the main photo, used textured paint (Anita's) on the chipboard letters (EK Success) and flowers, and added gold paint on top (Adirondack acrylic dabber). I sprinkled some glitter while it was wet. The paper is by Fancy Pants and the overlay by Autumn Leaves. Envelope pocket: Studio K.
