Cuttlebug Challenge #40
This is my entry for the Cuttlebug Challenge Countdown to CHA Be Inspired #40 which is sponsored by 2 red bananas and the new Cuttlebug Folders by Provocraft!
The challenge was a sketch challenge with the bonus of using the Textile folder... well that’s on my wish list so I used the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Floral Fantasy to emboss a piece of pink cardstock which I then covered the raised embossing with Versamark watermark ink then covered that with glitter embossing powder and heat melted.
I then stamped my image from a set I got from Kmart onto white cardstock and trimmed it down, then the fun began, trying to get even corners... never as easy as it sounds without a corner punch (that’s on my wish list too). I ended up using my Fiskars circle punch very, very carefully. I coloured and shaded the image using pencils. I mounted this panel and added a dark red panel of paper behind then added four Fiskars eyelets in the corners of the printed panel then two sets of three red hearts. I then added a ribbon from my stash and mounted it on grey Craft Market textured cardstock.
Now I made a tag for another challenge that matches so now I just have to make a photo disk to send to my Nanna... you know she just loves all those photos of great-grandsons!
Thanks for reading,
Okay there is a really cool competition for copic markers going that needs a coloured in stamped image... at Crafty Goings On so go enter for a chance to win some copic markers... you know they are on my wish list (with lots of other stuff!). Good Luck!
