1st DT Card for 2011 - Ellephantastic Challenges



Happy New Year Everyone!!! I hope you are all buzzing & ready for a new year. For me I can't wait. I have soooo many things I want to try out this year. So how many have made Resolutions for the year? I have got my list but I'm keeping quiet about what's on the list lol!!!

So here we are with the 1st Ellephantastic Challenge of the year. Helen has done a fantastic job giving the site a facelift with new badges & a new DT. We are also changing to a MONTHLY blog with an extra challenge with Tutorial each month. This month we are being sponsored by the brilliant
Robyn's Fetish



Die Cut Dreams Crafts



Crafty Sentiments

Ellephantastic (Of Course!!!!)

So onto the challenge. The theme this month is "NEW BEGINNINGS" & the DT have come up with some amazing cards using Robyn's images. I chose to make a card for a New Home

I have used the Cabin image & coloured using my Promarkers. I distressed around the edge of the picture. I added a sentiment printed out on my computer & coloured this again with Distress Inks. The paper is actually from the MME Oh Christmas Tree stack but I thought it went well with the image.

Don't forget this challenge runs until 4th February. Please remember that it is only 1 entry per person. xx Clare x
