In the past few days, I have discovered card making challenges. My first one was at Jaya ji's blog. I was so excited to make the card. It was as if a child was given a candy. I couldn't wait to finish it.
I found Sir Stampalot challenge blog through Brenda's. The topic for February is " All creatures big and small.
I did a lot of thinking to make something for this challenge. I wanted to use quilling. So thought of making a quilled butterfly. But it was a disaster. Then I used spellbinders butterfly die and made this card.
I used another quilled peacock , which I had made long time back,as a guide. But then I surfed the other entries in the challenge and was so much awed by the talent out there that I dropped the idea. I thought of making an origami box and made a quilled bee to decorate it.
I used Nanncy Watt's paper from Making cards magazine.
But it didn't click with me.
So I made a pen holder ( or tool holder) from Pringles can. I got this idea from one of the entries. It is a super cute purse/bag made out of pringles can. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of blog. But I will try to google it later.
Supplies for the pen holder:
1.quilled flower: 7mm strips pale yellow and pale blue
2. quilled butterfly: 7mm strips orange and yellow ( I made another one after the first fiasco)
3. Two stamped flowers for decoupage
4. Two stamed butterflies ( Anita's) for decoupage
5. Backing paper from creative cardmaking magazine
6. quilled bee: 3mm strips black, yellow, white
7. Letraset promarkers : yellow, brown
8. Shrpie: yellow,red, orange
9. Fabrico marker:yellow
I am entering this pen holder ONLY for Sir Stampalot challenge because, this challenge inspired me to better myself.
