Springtime Swirls & Pearls
Hi all, and welcome, it's a new month for Sir Stampalot and Penny Black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenge this could be the one for you. I have used Ollyfant Farmtales from Sir Stampalot which you can find here, and at the moment they are in the sale at £2.99. And there is four stamps in this set all four on one sheet for that price and each one is as cute as this gorgeous Piggy.
At Sir Stampalot this month the theme is "Take Inspiration", I will explain below.
We will be sharing two DT projects with you this time in March, but you only get to see one today, but you will be able to see the second DT work on 18th March when we will also be sharing a bit of exciting news with you.
Now for this months challenge. A few weeks ago Brenda sent us all two kits and asked us to all come up with something using each kit. The kits for each challenge were pretty much identical, the DPs' and ribbons varied a little but are all from the same family and it was so exciting to see what everyone came up with. An as you might expect everyone created some wonderfully inspirational pieces. So what's this months challenge', well it's simple really "Take inspiration" from any of the DT's pieces of work or the kit itself shown below which is called "Swirls & Pearls". You can make anything you like and choose where you take your inspiration from. Perhaps some of the kit colours, pearls and swirls, or maybe one of the DT card designs and go with your own colours. All we ask is that you remember to tell us in your post which it is and of course follow the rules.
Pearls and Swirls - DP is Alla Prima, swirls TH tattered swirl, card blank cut on Nesties Labels 23, plus buttons, ribbon and pearls and everything available from Sir Stampalot
