Still 8 days left to join us for our current challenge that as always is monthly with an 'Anything Goes' theme.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this one...after seeing a similar idea but in a frame, over on Hunkydory Crafts. This is my take on it with a card. Taking a blank 6x6 card, I matt and layered patterned metallic and black card. On this I added some black web netting. The pumpkin I created from a template, then drew round the shape on to some black card and cut out. I added buttons, then die cut leaf and vine, adding buttons to the leaf too. The stalk I made from brown card. Once the pumpkin was dry I added some glitter glue in between the buttons then added as shown. I decorated with a glitter die cut spider and die cut 'Boo', not forgetting some added 'bling'!! Hope you like it!!

Hunkydory
- Moonstone 'Alphabet' and 'Lovely Leaves' Dies, Black Adorable Scorable Card and Gorgeous Miri Gingham Card

LeAnn's World 101 - Challenge 30

Hi there
(Sorry this is late, have had a few gremlin issues with my blog)
A new challenge has started over at LeAnn's World 101. As always our challenges are monthly 'Anything Goes'. I have chosen to use this fabulous image called School Girl, for my DT project this month. Isn't she wonderful?! I had an idea what to create after doing my other 'school' project a couple of months ago...so here is my finished creation...hope you like it!!


I decided to create a little black/chalkboard card. For this I used a 6x4 kraft card base and die cut the the side using square die, to create the legs. I inked the card using various distress inks. When dry I die cut a square in the middle and added die cut white card that I printed black with white 'school' chalk effect doodles. The image itself, I printed, coloured then carefully cut out, placing as shown. I decorated using die cut flowers, leaves and pretty banner with 'A B C' peel-offs. I again used the 'duster' & 'chalk' toppers from my last card. The pile of educational books, I found online for free download, I thought they were a great addition for the overall look. Oh and a bit of 'bling' to finish...What do you think?

Materials Used 
LeAnn's World 101 - 'School Girl' Image
ProMarkers - Saffron, Caramel, Vanilla, Grey Green & Pear Green
Ranger - 'Antique Linen' Distress Ink & 'Walnut Stain' Distress Oxide
Hunkydory - 'Floral Fancy', Lovely Leaves' & 'Banner' Dies - 'Floribunda' Backing Paper
M&C Boutique - 'Faux Stitch Square' Dies
My Stash - Kraft Card, 'Books', 'Duster' & 'Chalk' Toppers, Alphabet Peel Offs and Gems
