This week's Friday DCM Challenge is an interesting one
and I hope I will be allowed this as I didn't exactly follow it to the letter. Here's this weeks dare:
'Let's go Charity shopping or Op shopping (as we call it in Australia)
I DARE you to visit your local Charity Shop & make someone else's TRASH your STASH! .........and make a GORGEOUS card from what you find. You'll be amazed at the special little treasures you'll find if you only take the time to look with CREATIVE EYES.'
I am reallly short of time this weekend as I am going to the Papercrafts Extravaganza tomorrow in Harrogate, (well, someone has to!)and I'm supervising a Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition on Sunday, so my CREATIVE EYES headed upstairs to the spare room where there is a bin bag full of clothes destined for the charity shop when I get round to it. I eventually spotted a t-shirt with loads of buttons on it then kicked myself for not thinking of using them earlier! Sorry, I haven't a clue where the background paper came from, but green behind the flower is embossed Bazzil, the blue ribbon is recycled from a shirt, I used a Prima flower and added two punched ones and a button in the centre. The silver sparkles are glitter glue and 'Birthday Wishes' is peel offs. I used various bits of 'Metal Hardware' (heart, arrows, rivets and nameplate), brads and inked lots of edges before finishing off with hand drawn stitching.
Thanks DCM darers for helping me to find loads of buttons!!!
