Reverse Confetti..Playing with new goodies..
I won the February Reverse Confetti sketch challenge, which meant I got a $20 voucher..obviously I spent more than that, but now I have all these lovely new things to play with.
Here is the March Sketch -
I bought the Bearing Gifts set because I loved the Bear in the car and thought it would make excellent birthday cards.
I had this crazy idea to create a scene and would you believe it, it worked!!
I really liked the current theme over at The Male Room -
I thought I could combine the RC sketch and The Male Room theme...I love how the DT have used wood.
I hunted and found a piece of wood effect background paper in my ridiculously large paper stash and die-cut out using a Simon Says Stamp stitched die and in the same paper stack I saw the blue piece of paper that worked as 'sky' in my opinion. I die-cut that piece using a smaller MFT stitched die.
Then I stamped the trees onto a green patterned paper and fussy cut them out. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the Bear (I don't have the dies..yet).
I spent a while laying it all out before the glue came out...no room for mistakes here..I didn't fancy fussy cutting anymore!
I love the end result and feel like the Bear is driving through the woods to deliver gifts!!
Always fun to combine challenges.
