And, we have another lovely Guest Designer this fortnight - I know that lots of you have been trying out Kathy K's Black Ice technique from two weeks ago.
This time it's Connie (of Grammy's Attic) who is in the spotlight:
This is what Connie wrote when she emailed the photo and her card to me:
The image is a digi from Bugaboo Stamps, colored by hand with a combination of polychromos pencils and ProMarkers. The image was printed onto a scrap of white cardstock and was cut with a die from Sue Wilson. Both patterned papers were snippets from the scrap basket and I cut the striped one with a scalloped, circle die from Memory Box. The shape comes from the fact that it was a snippet, therefore I couldn't get a complete circle. The double butterfly parts were cut from a tiny, double sided, snippet, using a Presscut die, and then layered together. I always feel so proud of myself when I use up scraps instead of just throwing them away. My mind tells me I can now go out and buy some newer papers because I've been so frugal with the old stash. :-D
Thank you once again for being our Guest Designer for this fortnight Connie - Parsnip would send you an Easter egg as he's been busy using my Easter egg moulds as well as mountains of choklit here. But, I politely said it would be too far to send his 'confectionery' but that no doubt you thought it was a nice thought. I didn't want to hurt his feelings but to be honest, he's licked the spoon so many times then stuck it back into the melted bowl of choklit that I certainly wouldn't wish the results on anyone!
Onto this last fortnight's picks now and the three picks I managed to whittle my list down to were chosen because they're unusual snippets that have been used. Sometimes that's the only way I can cut a very long list of picks down - by homing in on some sort of thread running through the list. So, you can't predict it girls - my mind works in a very mysterious way at times - most of the time really!!
Well done Viv! Do please send me your address, with full name at the top so I can copy and paste - for speed and ease. I'll be off to the Post Office ASAP, hopefully before Easter as they have a four day UK Easter holiday this next weekend.
Please put Playground Winner or similar in the subject line of your email in case it drops into my junk mail. Email address is on RH sidebar as always.
I have another lovely background stamp lined up before too long - it's not a 'turnaround' one but I'm pretty sure you're all gonna love it! Come to think of it - I have yet another full background stamp in the Playground toy box. Think it's time to hold back on buying new prizes until some of the existing ones have been won.
Remember folks, there's still almost another week to run on Challenge #322 HERE. The prize is a Mama Elephant 'Favour Bag Accessory - Bear' die set, so cute!
Love from the little 'choklit and white coloured' peril Parsnip - and of course me,
