Our Mid Week Tribute! - DCM



Two members of the super talented DT at http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com are moving on to pastures new, so the challenge on Tuesday was to pay tribute to Lynne and Gillian through our cardmaking......

'Now, as you are probably aware, both Lynne and Gillian sadly stepped down from the Design Team recently, and although the DCM team's door is always open for them, we thought it would be nice to pay a little tribute to them in appreciation for all their wonderful work during their time on the DCM design team. Lythan came up with an idea that we make a card in the 'style' of either Lynne or Gillian's cards. Or maybe pick your favourite of theirs and use an element from their cards on your own card. Everyone has their own style- we thought it might be a little challenge to try out a different style for a change!'

And it was!! I used BG Scarlet's Letter paper, embelllishments from the new luscious K & Co. Two Scoops range, various rub-ons and lots of inky edges. One of Lynne's trademarks is stitching, so I used my new mini sewing machine to attach the Bazzil (it is meant to be wonky!!).
Definately more Lynne's style than Gillian's, but Lynne's is probably closer to my own.
Anyway, good luck ladies with whatever you do in the future. xx
