Hi there friends and family, hope you're all well? Welcome to another challenge at Totally Gorjuss. Our challenge is for you to make something other than a square card. Our DT have come up with some wonderful creations for your inspiration, so do pop around and have a look. Our sponsor this week is Crafter's Companion. Thanks so much to those who took part in our Sketch challenge last week. Your creations were absolutely stunning!
I've chosen one of the pre-cut cards I bought from Crafty Emma's Store. I just took this beautiful Annalee paper, also from Emma's store, layered it over the card and cut around it by hand (I don't have one of those grand machines unfortunately). The paper was too beautiful to cover with loads of embellishments, so I've kept them to a minimum by just adding a few flowers and some pearls.
The beautiful dragonfly stamp is from a local company, Great Impressions (no. M1565), bought from Merrypak. I stamped it with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink, Vintage Photo and smudged it to create a vintagey look. Took some coppery glitter to highlight a few of the images on the stamp.
Our Tilda with Hawaii Flower is a newbie from 7 Kids College Fund. My order arrived in SA but was sitting at Customs for ever and a day. I thought it had got lost in the post. Now that they are here, I can't wait to play with my new girlies. I also received 2 new Magnolia magazines, the Easter and Valentine collections and I just loved looking at all the beautiful creations therein... wow!
Thanks for popping by and apologies that I haven't posted last week, but work and life outside of blogland, has kept me busy. Take care, hugs Sharon xx
