Cute Challenge


In case some of my fellow members have got the impression that I love to set challenges, but never take part, this is a quick upload of the partly completed "cute" challenge that I set recently.
Basically, the challenge was to do something "cute" if you usually go for arty look, and vice versa.
This is wayyy off my usual choice, but have to say that I really enjoyed the challenge - and used a stamp that my Daughter bought me for Xmas a couple of years ago, and hadn't even been inked.
Whether it's the fact that I now have Dave (the Cricut) and can cut a scallop without effort, or the fact that I enjoyed the colouring, I think I will be doing the cute look again.
It's not the best colouring/blending in the world, but I feel that I could do better with practice.
Now, I fancy some of the fabulous cute mice images I've seen around.
Stamp: Penny Black - Basket of Joy (2075)
Inks: Sakura Stardust and Marvy Makers
Other: Cricut Mini Monograms for scallop, Basic Grey Lilly Kate "Parasol"
I'm going to try to finish the card off tomorrow.

So, you can do cute after all, Kym!
Interesting that you did the scallops on the Cricut - I wondered how so y people seemed to be doing it on cards, when I can never find the scalloped Bazzill that suits a card size. Not enough reason to get a Cricut yet, though...

Petra,

Add it to the list of reasons to get one!

Wizard are coming out with new nested scallop shapes at CHA, which could be a good alternative.
