Good Morning – and a very Happy Mothering Sunday 🙂 If you’re in the UK, I hope you also remembered to put your clocks forward. Now, I have to tell you that I am not a fan of British Summertime. I know this makes me a fairly unique being. If you’ve ever read the Mapp and Lucia books by EF Benson, you may remember that many of the residents of Tilling chose not to adopt BST and instead, with the exception of when they wished to catch a train, stayed true to Greenwich Mean Time. I think this year I may see if I can do the same!
Today there is a new challenge over at Anything But A Card. Normally, our challenges are monthly and run for three weeks and during the final week of the month one of the DT hosts a one week spotlight challenge. However, March is a five week month so we have popped in an additional challenge that has the theme of 5. Here’s my Design Team project:
Can you guess who this might be for? Yep, I made it for yours truly. And you’ve probably already worked how this links with the Anything But A Card Challenge but just in case, here’s the back.
I altered my domino using tiny scraps of my Teresa Collins paper that were left over after I had made my altered matchbox.
I assembled the papers and trimmed them to the same sized as the domino. I stamped and coloured the bee before adhering the collage. I used an extra strip of paper all around the edge.The words were printed out, from my computer, on to kraft card. I added two coats of Modpdge glitter glue to add sparkle and also to seal the collage. I added a little paper rosebud, flattening it slightly and then sealing with more Modpodge. Tiny pearls are the finishing touch.
I was originally going to turn this into a necklace but instead added a brooch back.
Be sure to buzz over to Anything But A Card and see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to and we hope you’ll find time to join in with this mini-challenge.
Thanks for buzzing by.
