Crazy 4 Challenges - Saturday 19 June 2010

Well, I had got this project prepared all week to enter the Sweet Pea Stampers sketch challenge (I have attached it in case anyone is interested on the sketch I followed) - only to find once I'd completed it that the challenge is already closed ready for the next challenge tomorrow but I did work it alongside the Crazy 4 Challenges topic this week of paper flowers.  I have used two K&Co papers I've had for a while and turned this card into a vintage style with the colours I used, some lace, some flowers and finally some pearly gems.  The image is coloured in with Promarkers.  The larger of the two images I have just coloured with Tim Holtz's Antique Line Distress Ink Pad and I have stamped around the edge with some of my See D morsel stamps ad then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass Distress Ink Pad.  I have decided to stick some fridge magnets on the back and will stick it my fridge to remind me of my boo-boo of not entering a challenge so quickly.

This project will fit the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe Monthly - Nice and girly
Paper Play - Something old - the little green flowers I have had for ages and ages
Fun With Shapes and More - Flowery
Challenge up Your Life - Vintage
Paper Sundaes - Pretty as a princess
Meljen's Designs - Fibres, ribbon or lace
Crafty Calendar - Bugs and beasties
Our Daily Bread - Flowers - you were given the word FLOWERS and each letter meant something and you had to pick three - I chose f =  flowers, l = lace and s = swirls
By the Cute and Girly - Something old (for me it's the green flowers), something new (cream flowers), something borrowed (idea I borrowed from elsewhere where a stamped image is stamped twice with only a small proportion of the second image cut out and this is mainly the only one that is thoroughly coloured) and something blue(for me it's the blue papers, blue lace and the image was mainly coloured in with blue Promarkers).
