Hello there, yes I know it's unusual for me to be posting on a Thursday but I am trying to blog more and not just on a Sunday, I do make more than one project a week and this week I am GDT for the Crafting Musketeers with the theme of Grunge. When I was told what the theme was going to be I thought Oh my word, what on earth am I going to do, I don't usually do this kind of crafting so to say it's outside my comfort zone is an understatement. Well I'd bought some sets of stamps, embossing folders and dies from C&C, they are made by Couture Creations and I think they are a great idea especially when you haven't got a clue what to do.
I used the embossing folder from the set and then stamped and die cut the butterflies all of which I also added distress ink to, the ribbon was white but I coloured it with the same ink and the scrunched flower was on the back of the paper used for the main image, I cut it out coloured it with the ink and screwed it up, I added a gem to the centre but didn't have the right colour so I used a red one covered with black alcohol ink making it a browny colour, the heart is coloured with Treasure gold wax. Finally I embossed some black mirror card and sanded over the top to reveal the core.
I've really enjoyed playing and finally making something just that bit different, just hope the person who gets it likes it too.
I hope you can join in with this challenge and it is being sponsored by a company called Visible Image so you could win a little something too.
