Limited Supplies Challenge #1 - Only One...

This week on Stampin' a


and its a challenging one! We challenge you to only use ONE piece of patterned paper no more, that's it just one piece of patterned paper but of course you can also use other supplies like brads, ribbons etc., you can also use plain card if you have it... in fact whatever you want as long as you use no more than ONE piece of patterned paper!

So here's my card, I have used one striped sheet which I have chopped into rectangle pieces inked the edges and arranged on the card base like a mosaic effect! For the sentiment I have stamped the scalloped border onto white card and pink card, then stamped the sentiment into the frame on the white and cut out to raise up. The scallop took ages to cut and not sure if the pick card actually tones very well with the pp, I coloured in the dots with a matching whispers pen.

The gifts have simply been stamped and cut, the cluster of flowers are assembled with gorgeous brads, and one of the flowers I have changed the colour of with one of the whispers pens, using a water brush, left to dry it gives and great variegated effect! The circle is just brads pushed through in a circle. Will have to get some PM bling and make a shiny circle! click on images to enlarge!!!

Paper: CCSR - the big one Paper pack, PM - Hot pinks
Stamps: CCSR - stamping chic party set, CCSR - Sentiments, Papermania - sweet nothings
Ink: Colourbox Qs, Whispers brush markers,
Other: 3D foam, PM brads & pretty brads, PM - flowers

I can't wait to see what you all come up with - and don't forget to leave us a message and a link to your creation with Mr Linky so that we can pop by and admire....
