New Challenge Blog!!


For all of you who are addicted, like me, to the blog challenges there is a brand new site http://lotstodocallenges.blogspot.com/ . It is well worth a look as there will be blog candy up for grabs!! The 1st challenge is to make a project on the theme of 'From little acorns mighty oaks grow'. My attempt is an ATC which has been embossed with oak leaves (sizzix folder) then using cut n dry covered with distress inks in peeled paint and brushed corduroy. The acorn has been die cut (sizzix sizzlet) and again coloured with distress ink in brushed corduroy, aged mahogany and scattered straw then covered with 3d gloss(which doesn't show up too well in the pic :o(). This has been raised with silicone glue. The title is computer generated and coloured with scattered straw and edged with aged mahogany distress ink. The leaf brad was added as a finishing touch.
