Jacqueline's cards, she has her own shabby chic style and I love it, so when Joy set her first challenge "Create a project that honours someone in the crafty world that has inspired you", I had to choose Jacqueline.
The card I have chosen is this one, made by using up scraps of stamped paper that would otherwise be thrown in the bin.
This second card was my entry in the 90minute challenge set by Linda yesterday in the Hero Arts flickr group, I followed Linda's sketch and created this card in the 90 minute time deadline. Such fun, I was lucky enough to have my sewing machine already set up, as I had been sewing all afternoon. it meant I was able to add the zig zag very quickly to my card. The background was really simple, I just stamped the classic fabric design with Bundled Sage Distress ink and spritzed with water, followed by the envelope pattern also in Bundled Sage. The butterflies were stamped onto a piece of shimmery green paper from my scraps box.
I have had a really crafty weekend and have had time to do a little gardening as well, so a productive time, always a bonus!!
