It's the first Friday of March - yes really! - and time to announce the new challenge over at Making Memories Crafting which is
LOTS OF LAYERS
When I first saw this challenge theme, I immediately thought of using decoupage so I've been delving around in my stash again! I've blown the dust off a packet of House Mouse Decoupage sheets and got out the tiny scissors! I do love these HM designs but always seem to forget how time consuming and fiddly they are to do, the mice nearly lost their tails this time! These images are quite big so this is a 19cm square card, which will be on it's way soon to my Mum for Mother's Day. As the card is a bit bigger than I usually go for, I went a bit mad with the embellishments - no sign of less is more here! Not entirely sure how many layers I managed, it really depends how you define a layer, but I'm well into double figures on the mounted decoupage alone!
So that's a few more flowers used up from my stash and I also found this very cute and appropriate charm. Yes that is a hand stitched bow complete with pearl seed beads - and yes I did get very carried away!
Personally, I'm not a fan of chamomile tea, a mug of strong builders brew is more my thing!
Thanks for visiting today, don't forget to pop over to the main challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the design team!
I hope you'll be able to join us this month.
