This week the lovely Susan set the challenge of 'shaped cards' - i.e. no squares. Now this was definitely a challenge for me as 99% of my cards are square! Oh dear. So I decided I'd go for something completely different - and made a hanging decoration instead!
And I must admit that I really enjoyed making something a bit different! So I used two of my favourites of the new LOTV stamps - 'My Little Tree' and 'Christmas Star' - and one of the grungy sentiments. (Although when I showed this proudly to my hubby and said it was for a 'no squares' challenge he helpfully pointed out that the sentiment was a square... I won't repeat my response...! Sometimes you wonder why you bother!)
I've coloured the images with promarkers and pencils, added plenty of stickles and then added pearl pen 'snow'. I've added gingham ribbon from stash and then a few roses from WOC - a few red ones and then a couple of ivory roses sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer spray. I think it makes quite a nice hanging decoration - and nice to display some of the cute images!
Hope you like it. So do pop over to Totally Papercrafts and get some 'no squares' inspiration from the fab DT!
Back soon, Kim x
