Pages in Time on-line Crop

Last weekend Pages in Time had an on-line crop, it was a fun weekend lots of challenges and games. The first challenge was a distress challenge. Now those who know me know I am not happy “roughing” up a card but it was a challenge so I distressed everything on the card, first was the background which I used the distressed stripes cuttlebug folder. The image was distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink, the edges of the layer were roughed up with a pair of scissors. I made the nautical knot from a tutorial found here.

The second card I made for the “hide and seek” challenge, we were given hints to where the digi image was hidden and when it was found we made a card with it making sure there was some stitching on it. I made a 4 1/4 square easel card and used my sewing machine to add the feather stitch around the image layer.

The next challenge was to make a tag, an image was posted that we could use for the challenge. The tag had to be distressed, have a stamped image, a hand made flower, stickles, chipboard and the word Leisure somewhere on the tag. This little tag took me several hours to complete.

The final challenge I did was a colour challenge the picture was  predominately turquoise and peach. I loved these colours together. The image I used was a dolly mama’s by Joey, Inc. the designer paper was from an Asian mat stack I picked up at Winners last year.
