Challenge # 5 - My Favourite Four

Hello Everyone

What a lovely Month we have had with our "This used to be a..." challenge #4. You guys sure know how to turn just about anything into gorgeous stuff! We enjoyed each and every entry! So watch out for the winner announcement shortly!

For this month we have a very exciting and fun filled challenge. We thought we should get back to our roots of paper crafting.

The Challenge for this month is "My Favourite Four".

We just moved a step ahead of a traditional 3 by 3 Bingo and took it to a new level.We have a 4 by 4 Grid for you. What you have to do, is pick either a row, a column or a diagonal and create any  project that must include all the 4 elements in that row or column or diagonal. Here's what we have for you.


We have tried to spread across one technique in each row, column  and diagonal and we are so eager to see what you come up with.

I am sharing a post here after a very very long time but I had lots of fun making this card. I started with my new found love of making handmade flowers. These have been die cut in my Ecraft, embossed, curled, spritz with  Glimmer Mist and then with flat pearls for the centre.

This made me pick Coloumn 4 - Pattern Papers, Stickers/thickers, Dry or Heat Embossing and Flowers.

 The latest My Minds Eye Indie chic Collection looked perfect for this card and i wanted to get back to embossing as well. So this column was just perfect!

Since the flowers are big and chunky I chose to make a side step card to showcase these beauties and give garden appearance :). Here are the detailed shots!


Tried both dry and heat embossing

Can you see the shimmer on the flowers?

The cheveron! Patterns papers are from My Minds Eye-Indie Chic Collection




Hope You liked it.

    1. Hi Kavitha... If you are using R1 or C1 or D1 where it says "Stamping (Anything Goes)" then yes, digital stamps will do as it says 'anything goes.'

      But if you choose C2 or R4 which has stamping & colouring, we would want you to use rubber or acrylic stamps and colour it by hand using water colours, crayons, water colour pencils, copics, etc. and NOT use digital stamps.

      I hope that answers your question. Let me know if there's anything else you need to know..

      Cheers!
      Team Lulupu.. :)

    thanks

    1. Kavitha, as it says "Anything Goes" you can stamp anything, with or without colouring.. There is absolutely no restriction when it comes to stamping as a part of R1, D1 or C1.. :)

    2. thanks nikita for your reply, i think i better make a card and see your comments rather than asking so many doubts,still has many related to other rows :)
