Hope you all had a fab weekend. I am in silly season at the moment so I apologise if the comments on your cards are a bit thin on the ground. I would like to say a big "Congratulations" to my Aunt & Uncle who were celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary this weekend. Thank you for all the get togethers you arranged for us all xx
Right my card is a little late for Incy Wincy Designs this week as I got a bit behind so it might not appear on their blog this week but I thought I would show it here as it is now finished. The challenge this week is to include some Paper Piecing on your card. The prize this week is for a $10 voucher to be spent at the Aspire To Thrive shop.
I chose this fun milkshake image from the ATTCC shop & I think I might finally be getting the hang of Paper Piecing. I used Crystal Lacquers on the glass, cherry & straw just to give them a bit of definition. Here is a closer look at the image
I also 3d'd the cherry & straw which makes the milkshake look a bit more lifelike. I am still getting used to the image not being straight up & down though as I do tend to like my images symmetrical (just ask hubby lol!!!)
I am still on my mission to make sure that I get all the insides of my cards decorated so I have taken parts of the sketch & used them on the insides of the card too.
Don't forget that I have a little challenge running on my MAWTT post as well as the DT call we are having. Will be back with some more cards this week I hope xx Clare x
