This time she invited more people into the challenge..about 40 of us I think....so once the list was closed we all received an envelope and a double side set of instructions!! A4!!!
As far as I can gather everyone got different bits in their envelopes and as Leandra put it you were either going to love what we've got and others are going OMG what do I do with THAT!..Well let me tell you I definitely fell into the OMG category lol..and no Leandra I did not find myself making something better than anticipated!!!
I have to admit I sat there for ages and had no idea what to do with the things I had been sent but as Leandra says 'no wimping out'. I knew that whatever I made would not be to my taste as the things were so far away from anything I would usually do. So in the end I thought just get on and do something...and here it is...
The contents of my envelope
And this is what I came up with
I took white smoothy card and stamped the elephant directly onto it. coloured it using prismas and a touch of fresco paint. I used three of the eyelets in the opposite corner with a little bow made from the ribbon. I didn't use the hanging board as I felt the images were too big,so I cut off the string and used it for the elephant to walk on lol!!
This one was made in the same way apart from the string was tied to make a little bow tie for the Lion.
And lastly this one..
After stamping the elephant I placed a mask over it and stenciled the swirls with guacamole fresco paint. I also masked a ribbon shape using post it's and again stenciled the swirls in the top left hand corner...
Thanks for stopping by.....
