My how the weeks are flying by, almost August and as its Tuesday another challenge at Cardz4Guyz.
Now this really was a challenge to me as I didn't have a clue at first, as to this weeks challenge:-
ANYTHING BUT A CARD
Scrapbook page, tag, 3D project, gift wrapper, altered art, you've got it, but what to do with so many options and keep it male orientated? Well as my daughter and family are buying a new house I thought I would make something for Ben's new bedroom. I'd seen some button pictures at a craft fair at Christmas time, so went down that route after a mess up with my first try!
I picked up the frame at my local Sainsbugs, complete with double mount so all I needed to do was make the image, ah, slight problem. I printed off a B from the computer then set about sticking blue buttons from my stash onto it. Mistake, big mistake, as as it dried the paper was too thin and dried wrinkly, arrgh.
So I had to soak off the buttons in a water bath and start again. This time I traced through the letter onto card then stuck the buttons on. I did end up with extra buttons left over though!
OK, now its your turn. Check out the rest of the DT over at the main site and then have a go, you never know unless you try!
I shall also join in the challenges at:-
