Embellish It Competition - week 7 challenge

Congratulations to those of you who are continuing in the competition this week.  It is wonderful to see entries are continuing in the challenge section as well, the gallery is looking fantastic!

This week's challenge is set by Nicky Amber.
Your challenge this week is to create a project (any project - layout, card, OTP, canvas whatever!) that helps you use up your scraps and whatever you might have lying around in your stash. 

Most of us usually have some plain cardstock lying around in our stash so to start with we would like you to use cardstock to create your own patterned background.  You can use paint, ink, stamps, masks, etc... to do this.

We all like to get the most out of our materials so we'd like you to use your scraps and off cuts to make some inchies (at least 3) and incorporate them into your project.
NOTE: inchies are little pieces of art that measure 1 inch x 1 inch.

We would also like you to incorporate a favourite quote into your title... and to challenge you further no alpha stickers eg. thickers are to be used in your title.

To 'embellish' your project we'd like you to make a handmade embellishment from fabric.  You can use other scraps or items on your embellishment too - as long as the basis is made from fabric.

So to recap, you must:
  • create your own patterned background
  • make and use at least 3 inchies on your project
  • use a quote as part of your title
  • not use alpha stickers on your project
  • create a handmade embellishment from fabric
 Here is Nicky's example:

     Hope you enjoy this challenge...can't wait to see what you all come up with!  Projects are to be uploaded by midnight Wednesday.

    Just a note:
    We love seeing your wonderful creations in the gallery and to ensure we are all able to see your amazing work for the remainder of the competition it would be great if you could please hold off on submitting your entries elsewhere until after the competition has finished.

    Thanks for all your hard work.

    luv Tan & the team Xx

    Great challenge. Does ribbon count as fabric, for the handmade embellishment? Kirsten

    Hi Kirsten,
    Sorry, I'm going to have to be a toughy and say no - it can have ribbon as well but must have material / fabric as the basis, hope that clears it up for you.
    Happy creating...xxxooo
