A new challenge is starting today over at Here Come The Boys.... No Stamping Allowed. Now, when I first saw this I thought it was too, well, challenging; but once I started it all came together really easily.
I made a card for my niece's little boy; he turns two on the same day my grandtwins are due :) I'm sorry the photo isn't the best, I took it really late under my "daylamp" and haven't had a chance to re do it - I will if I can later.
The patterned paper is from DCWV, the Animal Crackers pad. The die cut arrow, triangle and star are from them too, I think.
I coloured the wooden U and R with Copics, adding some silver gel pen lines. I covered the cardboard "2" with paper then coloured it with Copics, then added Mint Ice Stickles. I popped the arrow and the "2" up on foam dots. Joanna Sheen has Lots of Layers as their challenge theme, loads of layers here; I'm in!
The NIC (my grand nephew's Nic name, lol) are foam, they're already coloured.
Inside the card, I've used more die cuts and some twine from my stash. The Happy Birthday is a sticker.
The Pink Elephant, Divas by Design, Simon Says Challenge, Craft Us Crazy and Stamping With The Dragon all have Anything Goes challenges running so I'll be entering them.
That's it for my very simple No Stamping card, pop over to the Here Come The Boys Blog and check out what my teamies have done - it just goes to show that there's plenty of scope even without stamping ;-0
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
