Hi all i've been asked to be a Guest Design Team Member for an awesome challenge called "Use Your Stuff" and for Inspiration we had to use a Dr Seuss Quote. Well I think this challenge is awesome & i'm gonna try to keep up with it cos we all have way too much stuff we never use!! So the Dr Seuss Quote I chose for my inspiration was this.
I like nonsense it wakes up the brain cells
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient for living
It's a way at looking at life through the wrong
end of a telescope
Which is what I do
And that enables you to laugh at lifes realities.
And here is what I made
Nothing says fantasy more than a fairy so I used a Lavinia topper & a black mat. The base is a scenery piece also on a black mat. Then I used a tonic regal punch in black with a band of green glitter card. Using a Sue Wilson die I cut a decorative strip of green glitter card and added it to my topper edge. I cut the sentiment & clock from a Crafters Companion cd. I used a Marianne die to cut the flowers from paper on the same cd and added leaves I cut out from a sheet. (I've had it so long I can't remember where I got it lol)
To finish I added a couple of ceramic flowers down the side. All these items have been in my stash quite some time and I felt really good using them at last so i'd recommend this challenge to anyone!
I really hope you like what I made & leave me some feedback too.
Thanks again crafty bloggers Jacqui over and out!!
