Morning thought it was Sunday yesterday but hadn't upoaded card thinking I had done it already-if that makes sense???well it did to me as I was typing it.Completely lost a few days this week as been ill a couple of days and so far behind with leaving you all comments so will be around in next couple of days.The new challenge today at 613 Avenue Createis -----"Create Your Own Challenge" which means use at least one item from each column of the chart,which is easier than it sounds.I have used image from column 1//shaped card/die-cut from column two//solid colour paper emboss-from column3//buttons from column4 and Bakers twine from column 5.The sponsors this week are Creative Bug,and Delicious Doodles and I have used DD image Steampunk Heart which I won a couple of weeks ago.I coloured the image with promarkers and used sepia glossy accents,cardstock from Papermill Direct,the silver card is embossed with TH.Gears set and wiped over with black acrylic,kraft card embossed with TH Blueprint,die-cut heart and key/buttons and twine from stash.Sooo if you fancy a challenge come and join us.
