ECP Challenge 4 - Lavender & Anything But A Card for Kaboodledoodles



Hi dear friends, I am sorry that I am a little late in posting this DT project for ECP CH4 - Lavender, as I had a tumble down the stairs (thankfully only the bottom 5)  this morning and busted my right hand....I am trying to type this with my left hand, and it is taking forever......we are wanting to see an altered project, or a card, or scrapbook layout with the colour Lavender....





I decided to make another Calander, I have 4 more off these to make at some point this month, and I hope you don't get fed up looking at them....our DT have as usual came up with fantastic projects, so diverse....we are sponsored again by Willow Designs, I have used one off Sharon's images on my calander, she has the most wonderful images and backing sheets, so please pop over and see what she has...I teamed the image up with yet another kit, that I remembered I had, whilst watching QVC on Tuesday, I coloured the image with promarkers and decoupaged her a little......Hope you like, and find the time to enter our challenge, which is open until Thursday 28th January at 11.59pm (GMT).

 



As you know I have been playing with my alchohol inks this week, and the reason for this was, because I wanted to enter the Challenge 22 at Kaboodledoodles, (thanks Angie, for giving me a wee push, to doing some challenges this week, instead off just my DT projects, I have been covered in Ink since Tuesday, LOL) who wanted "Anything but a Card", I wanted to make a Bookmark, for myself, as I am forever turning the pages down at the corners, and I have decided not to do that this year, as my books go to the charity shops after I read them....I used Tim Holtz Alchohol, Inks, for the background, then used a Mask from the Tim Holtz range and dabbed more ink over it.....I then stamped a flower with the inks and added some Copper Shimmers to the middle off the flowers, not sure about it, but it was better than the earlier attempts.....

I hope to be back on Sunday with my Winter Wonderland DT project, but I will have to see how my arm is, as my project is only half finished at the minute.....

I hope you are all well and are getting rid off the awful snow, we are thawing out here in Edinburgh, and Brian is talking about getting me out on Sunday, for a wee while, so hopefully it does not start again...love to ALL, Avril xxxxx

Hi Avril, love the calendar - just my colours. Maybe I'll have to have a shot at this challenge! Hope your hand is better before too long. Thawing up here beyond Aberdeen too but taken a long time. Still ice on our drive. But I'm going to a crop tomorrow after work so that's good. Take care.

Hi Avril Ann,
What on earth are you doing. I told you to be careful going to the shed but I had assumed you would be OK inside. You remind me of someone.
These projects are fab - I particularly like the calander.
Please take care,
Hugs,
