and, finally....

the day has arrived.....our new challenge blog, "SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT" is officially launched....and I do hope that lots of you will pop by and play along.....

The idea is...that each month a new challenge is announced and each week a different theme for that challenge is announced....hopefully, this will encourage loads of people to play along and try things that they might not necessarily do....so, with this in mind,

MONTH ONE= TWINCHIES (a twinchie is 2" square - so a lovely size to start off with)

WEEK ONE THEME = "WINGS"

so, here's my w1/m1 (had to get that in somewhere!! lolxx) Wings based Twinchie...


...the background is chalked and then stamped in sepia with a cherrypie distress background stamp, the arrow is from Tim Holtz Visual Artistry "journey" pack and the image is by Art Journey stamps - he was coloured in using watercolour pencils.....the text was done on the pc and inked.....guess what the good ol' gold dauber finished off the edges! now thats a surprise!! lolxx

I really hope that you will pop on over to SCD and join in the fun and see what my fellow DT'ers have come up with....this week we also have some gorgeous blog candy to give away to one lucky participant....and we have got some very talented guest designers joining us in the coming months....hope to see you there xx

beautiful little work of art, Carol. I like the sound of Twinchies as they'd be perfect to use on cards when they're done
