Of course Wednesday means Cuttlebug Challenge but, before i talk about this week.....I have to give a big shout for the new girls that have joined the team!
The team has increased now to 25!!! so make sure you hop over to the blog and check out the amazing new things that are being shown for you all to join in with and take inspiration from.......so many exciting things coming up over the next few weeks.......and if you have a bug, you definately won't want to miss out!!
Now.... the brief this week is to make a card or project using your favourite folder....not so easy as it's so hard to choose a favourite!.....so i decided to pick one of my favourites and it was also the first folder i purchased on the day i got my bug (2nd March '08)For my design today i've used the Stylized Flowers folder and a technique of inking the folder before placing your cardstock inside, another version of this can be seen
I use a brayer and Adirondack ink to colour up my folders, but if you 'google' it, you will find that everyone has their own way of achieving these results. The image today is 'Purple Toadflax' from Hobby Art, inked with Adrondack 'Lettuce' to match my inked & embossed pieces. The oval mount is a Marvy giga punch, sentiment is a sticker and ribbon from stash.
I hope you can join in this week and show us all what you can make with your favourite folder!
