Pink is the new black, and wonky is the new straight :P




Here's something I finished today, and, yet again, I've managed to make it wonky. If I'd remembered how bad I am at sticking things on straight, I wouldn't have done the stitching around the edges, but of course I didn't remember and now it's all stuck together and the stitching provides a perfect marker to accentuate the fact that it's not straight :P Both the stamps are by Tiddly Inks; the sentiment is from the Steampunk Sentiments Mega set, and the heart is from Love Hurts. I used a couple of 3D epoxy stickers, some ribbon from my stash and a Tim Holtz small swivel clasp.










These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Challenge Up Your Life - no patterned paper
4 Crafty Chicks - metal
Really Reasonable Ribbon - clean and simple
Tiddly Inks Tuesday - inchie art. My window sticker things are slightly over an inch wide, but not by much, they're just under 3cm square.
Craft Your Passion - anything but a card
The Pink Elephant - stitching
Lothian Crafts - anything goes
Fab n Funky - stitching
Sarah Hurley Challenges - stitching
