If you are here to enter a project into the "No Crafter Left Behind" blog-hop, keep scrolling down.....and note that the deadline has been extended! These are the challenge projects I submitted..... Because we were able to combine up to three challenges at once, I was able to submit a project in every challenge! Woo hoo!
The tulip petals and stems/leaves are from the bird punch and distressed with TH lavender, mustard, and sapphire.
The candle flames are punched with the same bird punch (it's the wings again). Then I used TH distress inks in Mustard Yellow and Rusty Hinge (applied with a sponge). The candles are strips of scrap paper. It's finished off with couple pieces of ribbon and a rub-on. Easy sneezy quick card!
's challenge was to use a pinwheel on the project. I'd never done one before. I love the pinwheel. Not so sure about the bottom of the card! NinaN's blog is at http://ninastimeout.blogspot.ca/
by belle's challenge was to create something that incorporates a handmade non-paper item. That adorable little butterfly was made from twine and scraplifted from Macattack on CC. See by belle's blog at http://stuffbybelle.blogspot.com
mom2tayandbay's challenge was to create a lay-out with a destination or travel
theme. Since the trip to Aunt Barbara was a road trip; I hope it counts! Mom2tayandbay's blog is at www.talesoftayandbay.blogspot.com
is a close-up of the flower on project 4. I received it recently from a
clearance sale at Websters Pages. I "need" more of these flowers.
raebae's challenge was to make a project celebrating every day moments. These pages are a page of my DH doing every day chores. raebae's blog is at http://kitchentablescrapper.blogspot.com/
I also used alcohol inks for the FIRST TIME on this project for the challenge of NanCDru – Char (http://craftychicchar.blogspot.com/2012/06/for-those-who-are-left-behind-blog-hop.html) It may not seem like a lot, but this was the fourth thing I tried to ink before I got something I liked......and I ended up with ink all over me (including a spot on my ankle! lol!) I want to get a few more colors as the ones I have now are all in the brown family, and I think my ankle would look better in green, don't you?
