A COUPLE MORE




Just two more for this weeks Fancy a Challenge.


The lady is called - 'That should be Round' - and is a stamped image with a decoupaged face and a few red gems. I used part of the image to make the hinge which I went over with gunmetal stickles. The embellishment is a brad and the whole thing is simply finished with a few blobs of crystal stickles and a black ink pad run around the edge.


The other is called - 'Portcullis' - made with some wood-looking paper. The hinges are from a sheet of rub-ons over which are lengths of chain fastened with brads. Again I used a picture from one of the many tourist information leaflets I have and the key is a brad coloured black with alcohol inks.

Wow like the Atc's. The Lest We Forget one is so apt for this time of year. Hazelxo

Thanks Hazel,
I feel strongly about 'our boys' having had past and current family in the forces. The ATC you mentioned 'just happened'. The lady one brought out a bit of the 'devil' in me.

Love the 'Should be Round'. The flash of red against the gunmetal and black works perfectly Joanne.
