Something new at Craft-Room Challenge

Morning friends, time to share one of those DT makes I've been teasing you about!   First some good news the builder called to confirm that we are all OK for the new kitchen fit next week yea happy face.


Well this fortnights challenge and it might be a toughie, it was for me.    Our Debi  who by the way is been getting very shaken down there in NZ.  So many quakes going on down there at the moment and not a peep in the news here in the UK.   Keeping you in my thoughts Debi and our other NZ friends.

Right back to Debi's challenge which is to use something new, easy right?   At Craft-Room Challenge we pride ourselves on offer great prizes and are fortunate to be supported by a terrific group of sponsors, not least of which is the sponsor for this challenge,  The Stampman.


Something new, new stash, new technique what a quandary!  Always got some new stash waiting to be used but what to use and how?   New technique generally that involves buying yet more new stash, thought for once I'd pass.   OK how about a new idea and lots of un-opened packs.    The mannequin are new and not something I've considered before they came from the Doncaster Show CardCraft stand.  The empty cotton reels are from the Port Sunlight show earlier this year and using a craft knife grooves were chiselled into the top of each of them to stand a mannequin in.   The card candy (also from Card Craft) is also new but might have been used once before, and the gaudy flowers are also know, they were in a sale.

Adirondack and DI inks used through stencils/masks some new some not, and also used to colour the cotton reels.    Those of the mannequin's not decorated with masks were stamped, and the masked ones stamped on the reverse.  White pen used to pick out some of the designs.


Here are some challenges this decoration fits with.
