613 Avenue Create Challenge Challenge 227

Happy Sunday

This time over at 613 Avenue Create  the optional twist is "Craft Your Stash"

Ok so do you have a tin like this?
Full to the brim of die cuts and bits you intended to use on a project and changed your mind after stamping and/or cutting out

And do you have a pile of backgrounds? Mine is a collection of techniques I wanted to try, but had no project in mind when making them.

So when the twist was "Craft Your Stash" I was a little afraid of this challenge, don't get me wrong I have from time to time dipped into the tin of the pile and used something on a project, but to do this challenge justice I wanted everything to be from my stash.

When MFT first released the stamp sets Knight in Shining Armour and Once Upon a Time, way back in January 2017, I just had to purchase them, and as I wanted to make a Birthday card for my very own Knight in Shining Armour, my wonderful hubby Paul, I felt I just had to order them pronto :-)

When the sets arrived I promptly stamped and coloured many of the images, and then picked out the ones I wanted to use on hubbies card. So the rest of the images ended up in "The Tin"

So here is what was left, along with some Lawn Fawn Clouds, and one of those background techniques I tried but had not used.

Thanks for stopping by

  4. Alex - I have to laugh... I read your piece too fast and read "making a card for hubby" & then scrolled down to your card and read: "You're my Princess". Hmmm, what did I miss?? Read it again and figured out where I went wrong. NOW I can focus on the card - cool background and I really like your coloring on the images!
