I can’t believe it’s Friday already and that means it’s time for another Daring Cardmakers challenge.
It was Kathy’s turn to set the dare this week and boy did she come up with one to stretch your imagination. She called it ‘Shrink to Fit’ and the idea is to have lots of unused space on your card and an embellishment that measures no more that 5 x 5 cm…have you any idea just how small that is!
This was real problem for me because most of the cards I make are A5 size and a 5 x 5 embellishment would look really silly on a card that size, so for this challenge I’ve scaled things down a bit and made my card 14.5cm square.
The lovely Jackie has given me an Arte Y Pico award which is apparently given to people who share their creativity through their blogs. Other than the fact that it’s Spanish no one seems to know what Arte Yico actually means, so if anyone can shed any light I would be grateful. Anyway, I feel very honoured Jackie, so thank you so much for thinking of me. Now apparently I have to pass it on to five more people, so here goes…..
I started off by printing the computer generated greeting and then cut a 5cm square in the centre of the card. I edged around it with a silver metallic pen and then did a bit of weaving with some Lavender and Blue ‘Papillon’ Craft Yarn that I brought from Craft Creations.
So there you have it, a card with a small embellishment and lots of white space……just what Kathy ordered!
I've also been given an award this week.
All of these girlies have more talent in their little fingers that I can ever hope to achieve. I love reading their blogs because they give me so much inspiration and in Lythan’s case she more often that not brings a smile to my face.
