The arrival of the New Year sees lots of changes at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog. Click here to go and have a look. This fortnight the challenge is "classy/black tie".
I struggled at first with the challenge topic and decided to go for black and white and also for an elegant fairy. I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps Caron Vinson image called Royal Flower. I have just done a light colouring of the image with Promarkers and distressed around the edges with my Inkylicious Ink Dusters and Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad. The backing papers are scraps left over from a Design Team card and are by Crafty Ann's Digi Store. The calendar has been finished off with a calendar tab, buttons, ribbon bow, ribbon flowers, peel-offs, doily (distressed with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad) and some gems.
I am entering this calendar into the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin' - New beginnings - I chose New Year and made this calendar
Sir Stampalot Monthly Challenge - Monochromatic
Fashionable Stamping - Anything goes using new stash (new ribbon flowers and some buttons)
By the Cute and Girly - New beginnings
Stempeltraume - Anything goes
