Playing Cups


I've been playing with my counterfeit kit again.  There are a couple of sheets left which I am unsure how to use.  Rather than try and work it out today I just put them to one side and made this instead!


I kind of followed the sketch from Sketch'n'Scrap...

http://sketchnscrap.blogspot.co.uk/

 But went a bit freestyle with it too!

I used some happy happy happy ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.  It's the first time I've used it I think.  So far it has been too precious to cut!


And I also layered in some grey cotton ribbon.


The alphas are Amy Tan woodgrain thickers, at least they were before I gessoed them!  I have two packs, both of which came as part of something rather than me buying them, and I'm really struggling to use them.  I decided to gesso them and then make them match the two tone heart paper using acrylic paint.  I can see the rest of them being used up this way... they can match any and every project with the amount of paint I own!!

Linking this up at Sketch'n'Scrap!

  14. Love your adaptation of the sketch!! I know exactly how you feel about the scraps -- guess I need to learn how to get more creative to try and use mine together. I just pull out more stuff too use with pieces and try to dwindle them down one embellishment at a time. Anyhow, your page is fabulous!
