My challenge today was to use free papers we receive in craft magazines!!
How many of us look at the free papers and never use them?? , well I do!!
I receive many mags thoughout the month, far to many to mention, but today I did receive my new copy of Quick cards made easy and guess what?, free papers!!
That gave me a challenge, and inspiration to use them, with these new Sarah Kay stamps that arrived today too.
How sweet you are - free papers!, Ribbon from stash, pearls from stash, flowers from flora Doodles, faux stitching, spiced marmalade distress ink and nesties.
Elodie in the garden - free papers from QCME, ribbon from stash, flowers stamped from a creative expressions stamp plate, card candy, broken glass distress ink and nesties.
Spring is back - free papers from QCME, ribbon from mag, flowers from creative expressions stamp plate, broken glass distress ink and nesties.
All stamps were coloured in with Promarkers.
I think I done quite well with the papers, and I have many more to use!!. I normally print most of my papers from CDroms, which I love especially Funky Hands, Polka Doodles, Joanna Sheen to name a few, but ink seems to have gone in price, as I found out today!! ( 2 cartridges=£35!!).
Try the challenge yourself, you might find you save a few pennies to buy other goodie!!
Take care :o)
Bye bye for now x
