It's Wednesday again and that means a new challenge at Fab'n'Funky but first, head on over to the blog to see our winner from last week's fruity challenge. We loved your great designs.
I predict a lot of love for our challenge this week! The very talented Dawn is our host and she has chosen the theme of...
Simples! I don't think this one needs any explaining! Our sponsor is the totally awesome Mayzyart and the DT were so lucky to work with her fab images. I used Maurine with Tea for my card.
I started with a piece of Coredinations cardstock and I embossed this several times to extend the pattern with an embossing folder that I received free with the last Crafter's Companion magazine. I really like the flower and dotty patchwork pattern. To reveal the core I sanded back using the Crafter's Companion Coredinations Accessory Kit. The lilac ribbon was on sale at Hobbycraft a few years back and this is the first time I've used it.
I used Creative Expressions crinkle paper for the bottom and then added half a doily coloured using the Twilight Sky ProMarker. My cup was made from Spellbinders Tea Cups and I stamped the sentiment with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. The gems were affixed by hand using Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue.
I coloured Maurine with ProMarkers in Blush, Dusky Pink, Caramel, Cocoa, Henna, Ruby, Lipstick Red, Indigo Blue, Reef Blue, Twilight Sky, Polar Blue, Amethyst, Peony and Lilac. I cut down some Hunkydory foam pads to attach her to my card. I finished by adding some glitter to make stream from the tea cup.
I really hope you'll join us this week to celebrate someone's birthday. The more the merrier!
