SFOS Challenge 20 & Secret Craft Challenge 2
The Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 20 was to use pink and green and challenge 2 on Secret Crafter was a sketch. I have a stack of stamped images and thought this penny black image was ideal for the pink and green challenge but after duefully colouring it I realized that it was fairly large and I was going to strugle to fit it on a card following the secret crafter sketch.....so after a bit of deliberation I decide to make a 2009 calendar. For the picture section I used green and white card, paper from the kaboodle party picnic range, the penny black image is coloured with whispers markers, the title was done on my computer using the font Tempus Sans ITC, the trim across the middle was done using green card and a wavy silver peel off and I finished it off with three pearly flowers and some stickles on the water (although the stickles don't show up in the photo too well). For the calendar section I made a 2009 calendar in excel on my computer, printed it off on pink paper and mounted it on white and green card. I then mounted both the picture and the calendar onto pink A4 card and I added a row of die cut flowers across the middle, which I slightly embossed to make them stand up from the page, and added a small jewel in the centre of each one. I punched two holes on the top and used a piece of plated cord to make a hanger. I hope you like!
