Hi there, i'm back again with my second post today, this time around I want to share my project for the new challenge over at Sarah Hurley's Challenge blog where our theme is 'Birthday Celebrations'.
I knew straightaway which of Sarah's fab cds i wanted to use, of course it had to be the brand new Steampunk cd! (You can find Sarah's Steampunk cd and lots of other fabby goodies here) I haven't had much chance to play with it yet as i've been so busy at work and we've had some poorlies in the family so its was great to find some time to have a browse and print off lots of gorgeous papers and bits and bobs from the cd. The backing papers, journalling cards and sentiment are all from the cd, aren't the colours scrummy?? I've used some of the paper to make the flowers using spellbinders dies. I also used a die cut dress form and made a little dress from a scrap of fabric coloured with distress stains, some seambinding ribbon and one of my hoarded crystal buckles. I added a few tiny faux gems to create a necklace. To finish off i've added a screw top brad, some more seam binding, vellum punched leaves and a recycled doiley cut in half and sprayed with perfect pearls spray.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
CD Sunday: Recycling
Celebrate the occasion: birthday plus bling
Crafty Creations: Vintage fashion
Die Cutting Divas: recipe - Fabric and feathers/flowers
Paper Sundaes: Circles
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
