Yesterday I managed to get 2 challenge cards made before I went out for my birthday meal here. Lovely food, and they were very accommodating about my Gluten intolerence.
Anyway, firstly DCM - the theme this week is 'Old McDonalds Farm' (thanks for putting that song in my head). So, I checked my stash for farmyard animals and came up with - yes - a pig. Excuse the pun, I couldn't resist. The lettering is made by running a sizzlits alphabet strip through my Side Kick - I won it ages ago for having a card in a readers gallery, as no way would I have actually bought it. Talk about fiddly.
Next up is the Basic Grey challenge and this week its a colour combo. Black + Grey + 1. Now this was tricky, but I found the scarlet letter paper for my background, and I stamped my butterfly (part of the set I won last week - see last post) & dragonfly onto Marakesh paper - oh and theres a brad in the middle of the big flower. You can't really see, but I've glued some black seed beads on the butterfly's body with diamond glaze. (Wish I could do that 'close up' thing that you see on other blogs).Normally I wouldn't use these colours together but I think it works - thats why I love these challenges.
