Well so our challenge this week is entitled Thrown a curve. now you can use that as a title or you can use anything that curves eg arches arcs, circles ovals waves, well even let you use squiggles
We have an amazingly generous sponsor this week who not only has given us not 1 but 2 prizes but has also given you the opportunity to download three of her wonderful papers, which you can if you choose use in your entries or just use them when you want.
So who is our sponsor this week Pink Petticoat. Who specialise in trendy and easy to use cds and downloads. What surprised us is what a joy they are to play with and we all have been carried away and even though our examples are finished , We are still playing. I am myself creating some wound paper beads for a charm braclet and am also printing onto fabric to make a bag.
Pink Petticoat also has its own blog http://pinkpetticoat.blogspot.com full of great inspiration from the Pink Petticoat Desgn team and customers cards.
A few words from Liz
Hi everyone. My name’s Liz and I have the fantastic job of managing Pink Petticoat. I’m one of those creative types who’s had a go at most things crafty throughout her life, a bit of knitting, dressmaking, making soft furnishings etc etc, who discovered that Card Making & Papercrafting could be a major obsession quite by accident. And now I’m hooked. I think you all know what I mean!
At Pink Petticoat, I design craft supplies you can print yourself at home to use in your Crafting wether that be Cardmaking Atcs or Altered art. It’s fabulous to do and I absolutely LOVE what I do. I hope they’re as fabulous to create with too : ) I try to keep everything trendy and fun – if you like to make a card that will make someone smile, then Pink Petticoat may have something to offer you.
I’m thrilled to be able to sponsor your challenge this week & I hope you enjoy using your free download. From what I’ve seen so far, most of you have VERY different design styles than my own or most of Pink Petticoat’s customers. And I can’t wait to see what ya’ll come up with. Speak to you soon : )
So this week there will be two random numbers and each lucky winner will recieve one of these brilliant paper collection cds. Don’t you just adore the tins
