JAI #27

Over at Just Add Ink this week they have a sketch challenge.  I kind of played along last week but this week is the first time that I have played properly (well kind of).  Above is this weeks sketch.

I made a scrapbook page based on the sketch above using Tempting Turquoise and Summer Sun.  As well as some embossing.
Here it is my scrapbook page showing how DDs 4th birthday cake came together.
THe page was very quick and easy to make, which is very necessary in this house if i ever want to get anything finished!

Thanks for visiting

Clean and Simple Challenge

Another challenge was laid down yesterday for the next fortnight and for the first time ever I have completed the challenge before the last day, within the first 24 hours actually.

Clean and simple with no layers was the challenge and I decided what i was going to do whilst being terrorised, tortured kept awake from 2230-0100 by youngest DD! KIDS!!!!! today COFFEE is my best friend, sidetracking anyhow Once Upon a TIme when i first begun making cards they were all 2D, I only embraced LAYERS once I became a Stampin Up Demo and even then at the beginning I felt LAYERS were a waste of hard earned money HOWEVER I have learnt that LAYERS make cards so much more beautiful and I now have LAYERS except today.

My interpretation

and a close up, I have clear embossed over my watercoloured images with the Very Vintage wheel

Thanks for visiting, have a great day!
