DCM Friday! (And a Just Bex challenge)
OOh today's dare from the Daring Cardmakers is sooooooo fun! It was set by Kathy this week and the girls have come up with some fab cards as ever so make sure you take a peek!
Hellooooo, Kathy here to set you a really Beastly dare this week! The theme is ANIMAL and you can use anything that's animal inspired - not those diddy little ones like bugs, birds and butterflies (though you can include them in your design of course) but what I'd really like to see is bigger, wilder, more fabulous or fantastic creatures So you could maybe use animal die cuts, animal prints on paper or fabric, or maybe animal words or phrases "grrrrr get down tiger"!!!! You could invent your own wild and wonderful beasties, or go back in time for dinosaurs, or into the world of mythology for all sorts of incredible creatures. How about a card in the shape of a tiger, elephant or monkey? Now, there's a challenge for you.... I'd love you to all go really wild over this one and have loads of beastly fun
So here are my offerings of the week:
So for this card I made the little bee from some circles cut using a wizard die in my Big Shot. The frame is an old sizzix die, papers are BG and Chatterbox. I used some fibres and buttons for the bees knees lol
This was a fun card to make and I have only just discovered the absolutely fantastic Cuttle Bug embossing folder things which are so cheap too and work a treat in my bigshot! So I used a cuttlebug lion and embossing folder and the most time consuming tiny Quikutz alpha! The papers are some that were donated by the fab team at Self Addressed kits.
I also did another layout for the challenge to use loads of pics on a LO on the Just Bex forum. Its of me and my sisters when we were kids! I have noticed we don't have many pictures of the three of use! Must remeber that for when my lot make an appearance! LOL- So SEI papers, making memories foam stamps and some ribbons!
