Crafty Cardmakers blog is now weekly wth one week being the regular challenge followed the next week by a Spotlight challenge where we will spotlight a particular style of card, technique or product. Both challenges run for a fortnight and the team doing the spotlight also follow the current challenge although you dont have to.
So our first spotlight is EASELS and the girls have really excelled themselves with a myriad of designs and ideas :D
For this challenge I've taken the colours as inspiration and used starburst stains in Edelweiss moss green, glory of the seas gold and azure sea asters to make the backgrounds which have been cuttlebug embossed (Jules Jewells folder) The flowers from wild orchid crafts were white and I've sprayed them with starburst stains to match and added clear sticky heart gems.
I made a gatefold card and mounted that on my easel base and the stopper is a recycled clock from a travel clock which I've attached by cutting a hole in the base and slotting it through so you can change the batteries!
Stamp is from the butterfly beauties set (Aspects of design) from The Stampman
You may notice I mess with clocks sometimes well "Time is associated with the sign of Capricorn, and things that have to do with the measuring of time.....as clocks, calendars,and timers." so there ya go!
