The Studio Challenges: 8am Challenge

I've just spent a very enjoyable weekend taking part in The Studio Challenges cybercrop - exactly what I needed after a rather long, enforced break from scrapping. It was really good to get back into it and feel the creative juices flowing again. I got going straight away with the 8am challenge which featured a sketch from Becky Fleck. I've stayed fairly true to the sketch, only moving/adding a couple of elements, and I'm pretty pleased with the results. 


In the detail below the papers and journalling spot are from the Hampstead range by Papermania, the felt border is by My Minds Eye and the floral die cut is a Fancy Pants transparent die cut which I altered by covering the reverse in acrylic paint.


This chipboard shape is from the Basic Grey 'undressed' range, which I covered in some of the Papermania paper and inked with Tea Dye distress ink. I decided to make a feature of the three circles, and used a Pebbles sticker, some of the Papermania paper and a BoBunny rub on on cream card.


This bracket is also from the Basic Grey undressed range, and has been inked with dark brown chalk ink. The alphas are American Crafts Thickers and rub ons from Cosmo Cricket.


So a big 'thank you' to the team at www.thestudiochallenges.blogspot.com for all their hard work. There are some lovely prizes up for grabs for each of the challenges, and with a very generous deadline of September 4th you've still got plenty of time if you want to join in!
