Corrosive Challenges No 3

This was my sample for Janet's latest challenge over at Corrosive Challenges - going green! I tried really hard to make an all green card but it just didn't work for me. Instead, I decided to make these gorgeous little handbags - the idea came to me from Karen Robinson on a card I received in a swap. They are made using various SU punches - aren't they just too cute! If you came to my March techniques class you were lucky enough to learn how to make them too.

The main colour in this card is green - Certainly Celery. The accent colours are Apricot Appeal, Lavendar Lace and Blush Blossom - courteousy of the Colour Coach, of course.

I really enjoy making these little handbags - so great for embellishments on cards or scrapbook pages.

I have just placed my Demonstrator pre-order for the new Idea Book and Catalogue and some of the new products! I'm getting very excited as the launch is only 2 weeks away! I can't wait to get that lovely new catalogue in my hands.

If you would like to get a copy of the new IBC as soon as it is released, all you need to do is register for my April Techniqes Class. We will be playing with stamp sets from the new IBC, along with the new In-Colours, using some "Faux" techniques - faux linen, faux stitching and faux silk. These techniques will add a special touch to all your projects so I'm sure you won't want to miss out. The class is on Sunday 5th April at 1.30pm. The cost is only $20 and includes a copy of the new IBC! What a bargain. Registration is essential so just click on the email link on the right to send me an email if you want to use one of the limited places.

That's it for now. See you next time.

This is lovely. Never realised how tough it is to just work with green until now :)

Really like the bags...
