Busy day - another 2 challenges!!


I have had a great day, crafting... Here is my entry for Stamp Something's challenge of 'firsts'. The firsts on this card are, the first time I have used these stamps, which I bought ages ago, they are from Banana Frog, the set is called Build A Bloom. I stamped 24 petals on pink and lilac card, I then stamped a base of 8 petals and built the flower up from there, finishing off with a large brad which I embossed with holographic powder. The other first on this card is the doodling around the edge of the white card, something I have been meaning to try for a while and actually got round to it today!!

In my bid to catch up on challenges, here is the third one I have completed today, for Daring Cardmakers, 'we have been looking at Recycling once again. BUT there is a tiny twist! (you'd expect no less eh?) We want you to have a look at old shop bought greetings cards, wrapping paper or gift bags which you have received in the past and recycle any elements to make a card of your own.You could use them to make backgrounds, cut small focus pieces out, or use the flowers, ribbon and other interesting bits and pieces that are often attached to the cards'.
I have used the background of an old card to form part of the base card. Stamped image from Paper Nation, coloured using watercolour pencils, edged with some more doodling then mounted onto silver mirri card.
