ATSM Challenge 66

Hi Everybody,

how time flies, it’s Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, Challenge #60 – Anything Goes!!!

I know this will be very popular as you can allow your inspiration to roam freely and craft whatever you fancy.

Our sponsor this week is ….  Nicecrane Designs,

The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to spend at their online store. Pop over to the shop and have a look what fabulous images $20 can buy you …

For this week’s DT piece I have decided to do something different … and I have been thinking ‘handmade presents’ … they always come in handy, especially as nobody can deny that we are a sort of coming up to Christmas.

I have used a Nicecrane image sheet, a collection of 8 pre-coloured images. Here it is, my DT piece for this week:

Punky Dunk Gold Fish I

I made a little story book as a keepsake using the Punky Dunk And The Gold Fish Set.

Punky Dunk Gold Fish II

Below is a little overview of most of the book’s pages. I arranged the images in a way that they would tell a little story and kept the embellishments to a minimum to let the story shine through. As I was planning this project, a couple of friends came to mind, who are cat lovers and recently lost their great feline companion …

The tag on this first page fits in behind the little poem

Punky Dunk Gold Fish III

For the background I used stamps and pretty paper. I also added my own titles which I made up on my computer.

Punky Dunk Gold Fish IV

My embellishments are made up of die-cut shapes, pearls and candi.

Punky Dunk V

Punky Dunk VI

Punky Dunk VII

Punky Dunk Gold Fish VIII

I also left some space to add a personal message or two …
