The Crafty Purple Frog - Challenge One
This week sees the start of The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge. I love Sweet Pea stamps but also love decoupage so The Crafty Purple Frog decoupage/pyromage sheets are perfect. Click here to go and have a look at the wonderful creations.
For week one the topic is anything goes so I have used my new Poinsettia decoupage image. The two main backing papers for this card were given to me by a friend from a magazine but I'm not sure which. The other papers are Basic Grey, Crafty Ann's and some vellum. I have decoupaged the image, adding some clear Sakura Stardust pen to highlight areas and have then distressed the edges of all the papers with Tim Holtz's distressing tool and the pink/red papers are edged with red chalk ink pad and the green papers are edged with an olive green chalk ink pad. The card has then been finished off with some buttons, zig-zag peel-off, ornate lace, bow and a Crafty Ann's ticket sentiment.
