My secret is out. I can finally reveal that I have been asked by Cupcake Crafts to Guest Design for a month with them as I have been one of their Cupcake Cuties. Wow. Did I need asking twice!! First off I get to display this fabby badge each week.
The theme for this weeks challenge is to use bright colours and buttons. Well there was only one idea that popped straight into my head and it would invlove using loads of buttons.
100 buttons to be exact (in for a penny, in for a pound I say). A good deal of sorting out and here is my pile ready to start. I needed a base card and I had just the paper to use that had been sent to me by my lovely blogging friend Barbara of Barbara's World of Whimsies.I had been lucky enough to win it amongst a selction that Barbara had offered on her blog.
So lots of sticking and gluing later and this is what I made. A Medieval Chess Set complete with design paper base. I used a red promarker to colour in alternate squares to make the checker board effect.
Please pop over to Cupcake Crafts and see some of the other lovely makes by the Design Team for this week and maybe even enter the challenge yourself. Thankyou to the Cupcake team for inviting me along. I'm looking forward to joining in again next Monday.
