Scroll & Chips..

...is the recipe for the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group challenge... did you know there's a Yahoo Group dedicated to ...erm... everything... Wendy Vecchi? If you lurve Wendy's style and all things Studio 490 and would like to join the group, click HERE ... all the deets are there! Anyways, Lori - who is the List Mom (Mum for us Brits) organises this cool challenge every week... I won't go into too much detail cos you can read all about it when you join... all I will say is that the challenge focuses on Wendy's books... which, BTW, there is a #4 book out now... and... I am a very lucky Hels... because last week I won a copy of Book #4 - all I had to do was join in with the challenge, and let's face it, that is easy seeing as I have a bit of an...erm.. addiction to all things 490.



So... waffling aside... my card... right, our cousins in America use a different size card to our basic A6 one, a size that I rather like... so, I chopped down a square card and made my own version, I think it is a bit bigger than the US ones but still, it makes a nice change not to make a square card... the centre piece was cut using one of Tim's Alterations (can't remember the name of it and I am too bone idle to go and check ROFL) I made a wrinkle free distress on my craft sheet... and yes, there is pink in there... I used to love pink... (hence the http of my blog) and I had pink phones, camera's, clothes, hair accessories, hangbags, jewellry... and then one day I woke up and vomitted (no, I didn't really but I could've done I was sooo pinked out!) Anyways... the pink is Victorian Velvet and Worn Lippy DI's... along with Wild Honey, Crushed Olive, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire... loving the Chipped Sapphire mixed with Victorian Velvet, it has gone mauvey in colour.




The stamping is a technique I learned from one of Wendy's books... ink the background, smoosh said inkpad onto sheet and spritz, stamp into it and then stamp onto card... cooolio or what!! Thanks to Wendy for sharing that cos I use it alll the time! Now, there is a scroll on the card, just under the flower and behind the chips... I should have stamped it further into the middle of the card but that is just me being a dipstick and stamping before I have the embellishment ready. Oooh, and ... if you love Studio 490 and would like to see some new stamps and stash in your mailbox, The Stamp Attic have the whole new range... stamps, Art Parts, Clearly For Art etc... *just saying ;o))* Right... I have a special project on the go... I will be back later (if it works, if it doesn't you won't see me for dust rofl) time to get inky!! Thanks for looking... TTFN
