"Bringing Out The Old" Whimsical Wednesday Challenge


Hello everyone! It's Wednesday which means a new Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This week the challenge is "Bringing Out The Old". Create a Scrapbook LO or Card/Project of any theme but you must use something that you have not used in a long time, or might not have used at all since you purchased it. This can include anything used for crafting whether it is a tool, cartridge, paper, or embellishment.
For my something old I used my I-Top. I have not used it in a LONG time and it was something that I thought I would use ALL the time. Goes to show!
This was a super quick card! I stamped this cute girl and her turtle which is from Peachy Keens Vivienne and Friends stamp set. I colored it with a combinations of Copics, colored pencils, and chalk. I printed the background paper using my Imagine and Mr. Frosty and sewed around the picture with my sewing machine. For the sun I cut two of the flowers from Mother's Day Bouquet and layered them together. For the center of the sun I used my I-Top to cover a brad and sprayed the whole thing with Pearl Mist to give it some shimmer. To finish I tied a bow and stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1 stamp set.
I hope you all will play along this week and don't forget to check out what the rest of the amazing DT has created! Have a great day!
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
1. My Craft Spots Monday Challenge- Anything Goes
2. Peachy Keens Peachy Challenge- Photo Inspiration
