Two cards today, all made from stash that I’ve had knocking around the craft room for A-G-E-S! In fact, so long that I’m embarrassed about it.
I originally got the Tilda Angels (on two different A4 sized printed cards which had a selection of Tilda images on them), in an end of season sale at Hobbycraft – and the sheets only cost me £1, so were a bargain right from the outset.
All of the cardstock behind the Angels was all taken out of my ‘scraps’ drawer. Bits of left-over card stock from previous projects. So both of the fully made up cards actually cost just a few pennies to make.
The pink dress Angel is matt and layered firstly on some pink and white dotted card, which is layered onto of some deep purple mirror board, then onto some fabulous glitter card, and finally, everything is mounted onto to a pearlised, rich purple card. With the addition of a little pink Rayon seam binding, and some self adhesive ‘diamonds’, just to add a little twinkle, I think the card works really well.
The blue dress Angel ….
… is again matt and layered, firstly onto the same pink with white polka dots card as the Pink dress Angel, but then onto some pretty paper which is a soft white in colour and decorated with pink open hearts, then to add a little definition (and pick upon the black of the whisk in her pocket), I backed all the layers with some black card, then mounted everything onto a pearlised off white card. The addition of some more of the pink Rayon seam binding, and some Candy Dots, finished this little card off perfectly.
A final touch … a little something on the inside – a sentiment and flower.
Both of the cards were totally made from crafty stash I’ve had for ages, and so cost me virtually nothing to make.
A THURSDAY CHALLENGE:
Have a look around your crafty stash and see if you can make something(s) which will virtually cost you nothing because it’s (they’ve) been made from stash you already had. Something that you haven’t been out and bought even a single thing for!
Go on … I challenge you! 😀
If you do the ‘challenge’ – come back, make a comment here to tell me that you’ve made something and PUT A LINK TO YOUR BLOG post about the ‘thing’ or to your photograph of the ‘creation’ – then anyone who comes to read this post will see your comment and link and then visit your blog too! (and maybe even leave a comment for you too!)
