Quirky Crafts 2011: Challenge 4
which was set by me, Caro. We have a lovely sponsor for this challenge.
Digital Delights are creators of some gorgeous digital stamps. The winner of the Design Team vote will be able to chose 3 digital images of their own choice from this fabulous collection. The DT were given the opportunity to work with some of these images and they are lovely.
Now what is the challenge? Well with Valentines Day tomorrow most of you have probably made your Valentines cards, but we are still feeling romantic so we thought we would continue with the romance theme with a twist...
This means we would like to see anything Romantic (hearts, weddings, engagements, Valentines etc) with a recycled element on your card. Specifically we would like to see something that is not normally crafty: think packaging, inside of coloured envelopes, bubble wrap, newspaper, the metal from tomato purée tubes, seeds etc. Make sure you tell us on your blog what you recycled on your creation, just in case we can't tell!
Rules for entering our challenges are in the side bar and we reserve the right to remove any links that don't follow the rules, although we will tell you so you can enter something else. Don't forget, we love to see all your cards but we also accept anything crafty as long as it fits into the current challenge. That includes ATC's, Altered Art, Fat Pages, Scrap Book Pages, Magic boxes, Tags, Book Marks, in fact anything crafty you can think of!
Here are a few creations by our Design Team to give you inspiration.
