Plus Anice's papers are rather fabulous!!!
And I think it does you good every now and again NOT to rely on an image as the focus of your work. It makes you think more about the card and I really enjoyed making this one.
I have to admit that when I decided to do the challenge, I had one of those little 'bit of panic' moments. But this sketch is a dream to work with and the DT cards are so inspirational - every one is gorgeous.
So I soon got busy with the papers and this is the result. Not something you'll hear me say often, but ....... I like it :)
Is this the end of slap-dash Dawny?
The blingy bits are Kars and I got them from Creative Pastimes.
And yes, it has made an appearance!! God bless Martha Stewart and all who sail in her!!
I nicked the idea of using chipboard letters from my lovely Kath who is indeed the Queen of chipboard letters. Hers are neat - mine are not. But I still have 'L' plates on where they are concerned!!
I like the smudgy black bits round the edges. I felt that I had to say that incase anyone thought I'd just made another one of my grand messes. A bit like when you trip over and then start to run so people don't think you really tripped over!!! Well it isn't one of them, honestly. You know I'd tell you if it was :)
You can see the dimension here - I don't like flat (you probably noticed!!)
It's a bit different from what I usually do, but thanks for a great challenge girls - I will definately be joining in with this one every month.
I'm off to do a bit of work so that I can see my desk again, then it's off to the post office for me - lots of post to go out today, and some of it is long overdue!!
