Well over at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp we have a new challenge for you,this week our theme is "DISTRESSING"....now this can be torn edges,sanding...etc and you must include one digital image.
I've used Chris's (Sketching Stamper) image "Oriental Blosssom" which i've coloured with Copics.The main image ive triple embossed and IRL looks like a glazed tile,i've been wanting to try this for awhile and thought this image was perfect for that technique.I've coloured some extra flowers and then glazed them with glossy accents.The papers i've had forever and don't now know where i got them from,sorry.The three black panels are Black Magic Core'Dinations "Potion No9"which i recently recieved along with so many fab goodies in some RAK from my blogging buddy VICKY.I've used a cuttlebug folder to embossed them and then sanded them down to reveal the colour beneath...it's a perfect match colour wise to the bottom DP.Lastly i've added some self adhesive pearls,these are Kanban.
From this week the challenge will be changing to fortnightly,so we will have a new challenge for you every two weeks,the next challenge then will be 14th August.We are also starting to have on board a Guest Designer each month...this month we have with us the very talented JEN.And each month we will be picking a new GD from our regular challenge entrants.Hope you will all join us for our new DARE this week and a big thank you to all who took up the challenge with us last week.
I haven't been around much lately leaving regular comments,i've left comments mainly for people entering the challenges i'm on the DT for,sorry it's been a bit hit and miss....my mom's not been well again for afew weeks and as ended up back in hospital this week,my head's been all over the place and must admit i haven't had much interest which sounds really bad....i've struggled to even get my DT cards done due to time as well as lack of interest,i don't really want to give my Dt posts up because up untill now have really enjoyed being on those teams,so for now will try to plod along...i'd made up my mind not to post anything about my mom on my blog but decided i needed to explain why things have been the way they have for awhile now.
Have a lovely weekend all...
