Mel's latest challenge was to use distressing and include at least 1 eyelet, and Makeesha's was this sketch challenge.
The Summer Picnic DSP provided the colour inspiration for this one; Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Pumkpin Pie and Whisper White. I originally wanted to use the elephant from Wild About You but he was facing the wrong way, so the giraffe it was! Bashful Blue of course for boys. I used the very technical technique of tracing around whatever circular object looked right for the circles, and distressed the bigger one. I wheeled Nursery Letters in Bashful Blue, distressed the edges too and mounted it on Old Olive. I attached Bashful Blue ribbon to Old Olive cardstock using Aged Brass eyelets and stamped Harry with Pure and Simple Upper Alphabet (retired) in Pumpkin Pie and ran the letters through the Xyron to help tham stick to the ribbon.
The photo I have seen of Harry looks so cute, so we're looking forward to meeting him in the flesh (as are all the other kids in the centre!!)
