Midweek Motivation - Anything but a Card

Hello again,

Wow! We have had some stunning entries to the challenge this week, with not a single card in sight - but there's still plenty of time if you haven't joined in yet.

As it was my challenge on Monday, I thought I would pop back with some midweek motivation for you. Here's another little project ...

This one was much quicker than the original - I found these little sets of drawers in a local discount shop - what a bargain. They came in the kraft colour that you can see underneath and I covered it with some pretty papers from LOTV. A few extra decorations and voila! A perfect little place to hide some trinkets.

Here's a view from the top, showing the handmade flower ...

You have until Sunday to enter this challenge - so come and join in the fun.

Silhouettes - Midweek Motivation

Morning all - are you enjoying my challenge for you this week? I love silhouette cards as they are the perfect excuse for getting out my brayer. The card I have for you today uses just that technique - take a look

My white card has been brayered with a pale yellow ink first and then a post it note sun was added. Varying shades of red and orange inks were then brayerd to give a graduating effect and the post it note mask was removed before the black foliage was stamped - a little black ink was sponged around the edges and the bottom to finish it off.
This effect can also be achieved through sponging or using a large soft brush and there are lots of tutorials to be found on Youtube and Google. You may want to start with Michelle Zindorf as I used her tutorials as inspiration for both my cards this week.
I hope this has inspired you to take part this week - details of the challenge can be found by clicking the 'challenges' button in the side bar.
