Alphabet Challenge – 10 year anniversary – Anything Goes

There is a new challenge beginning at The Alphabet Challenge – we are back to the letter ‘A’ for ‘Anything Goes‘ – and……….it’s the 10 year anniversary for this challenge!

Jan’s Digis pre-coloured sentiment

10 years! Isn’t that marvellous? I have only been a part of the Design Team since August last year – a veritable newbie – but I am loving this tour through the alphabet – and the Design Team always has great makes, which inspire me for other and future challenges.

I hope you can come along and play in this mile-stone challenge – we would love to see you create any handcrafted item, any theme, any layout – just come along and play with us! You can even play 3 times – I know, I know – only 3 times!!!!!

Here is my card:

I stamped lots of images from the Lawn Fawn and the MFT stamp sets listed, coloured with Copics, then cut them out with the matching die sets.

Here are the Copics I used:

I then found a spare piece of green grassy border left over from a previous card so placed that down, them played around with the layout of the images until I was happy with it. That actually took me quite a while – which squirrel goes on which branch, which mushroom goes where, which flower goes next to which other element…………the possibilities were endless.

I toyed with the idea of blending a background, or even colouring a background, but as I can;t seem to get the hang of that – I left the background to the imagination of whoever is looking at the card.

I think I’m getting a ‘Copic thumb’…………….is there such a thing? Some periods of colouring and my thumb hurts and cramps – I may have to try holding the marker differently, as I’m kinda getting into the colouring groove…….I still find colouring a chore – but less so these days! The tide is turning!

So – come and play and help us to celebrate the 10th anniversary – I can’t wait to see your creations. Hope to see you there………… xx
