One Stop Craft Challenge~ Something New

Good Morning. Its time again for this weeks One Stop Craft Challenge, our theme this week was chosen by Maggie and I know all the design team really enjoyed doing their samples for this, the theme is 'Something New'. Maggie would like everyone taking part to try something new in their projects, this could be a new technique, a new project or maybe a new product, just let us know what is new about your project.
There are a few new things I have tried on my card this week, the first was making a background pattern using ink and baby wipes, I was really happy with the result and then I used some new stamps from Stampin up and last but not least I decorated the inside of my card by masking the centre and randomly stamping a border around it. You really have to check out the rest of the design teams projects there are some fabulous new techniques I can't wait to try and I'm sure you will all inspire us this week as much as we hopefully inspired you. Don't forget we always have a great prize on offer for the randomly picked winner and this week I wish I wasn't part of the design team and could enter myself lol. Check out the challenge blog and see for yourself. Enjoy your weekend. x

I tried the baby wipes tech. once and those it was really great, just never took the time to do it again...thanks for the reminder! Yours turned out great!!! I think the inside looks fabbo too! I like how you masked the middle and just did a border!
Hope your wknd is off to a great start Donna! We're expecting fabulous weather, swimming weather even...seems we go from woodstove cold to air condition hot. Not sure where they're keeping Spring locked away???
