Woo Hoo!!! It's finally here......LAUNCH DAY for Stampin' for the Weekend. Kimmi, Donna, and the whole Design Team of Amy, Ida, Jen, Nicole, Poppet, Vicki and Vanja and of course me, have been waiting for this day for ages.....and I do mean ages! LOL
For our first challenge entitled "From Dusk to Dawn", we're asking you to make a card or some other project using the color scheme of Purple and Yellow, a color theme not normally seen, but it does look gorgeous together. For this week, with it being our first challenge, Kim and Donna have put together a lovely prize with lots of crafting goodies and even chocolates for our first winner. So if you fancy your chances.....please join us. Look forward to seeing you over at "Stampin for the Weekend".
This is my piece. I have altered a clipboard. Could take ages for me to give you a full description so wont bore you with too many details LOL. I covered the edges of the board with Gold Leaf and painted the centre with Acrylic Paint and added Pee Wee Glitter while still wet. All the stamps are Magnolia and coloured Tilda with Promarkers. Papers used are BG Wisteria. An array of flowers, spacers and brads from stash and a few extra embellishments to finish. I altered a clipboard last year, the link for it is in my sidebar and I have to say I just loved making another. It is so pretty IRL.
This is just another view so you can see in more detail.
And this is even closer!!!!
I'm also entering this piece into 2 other challenges. I wish I could find the time to play in so many more but my challenge link list keeps growing and combining is the only way sometimes.
Mangolia Down Under has a "Moving to the Country" theme and Stamp With Fun is "Not a Card", (well thats for sure) lol.
Please do come and support Kim and Donna in their new venture. I know I have lots of wonderful blogging buddies out there who would love to play along, and we'd love to have you. Don't forget the fab prizes that will be on offer and we know you will love all the challenges. Remember to add "Stampin For The Weekend" to your sidebar and heres to week 1........
