Monochromatic is a fun challenge to do !! It makes you think when you can only use one colour, but many tones of that colour. So that is what The Crafty Pad Challenge is this week : MONOCHROMATIC !!

Our fab sponser this week is :

The winner will get issue 46 of "Lets Make Cards" magazine which doesn`t hit the shops till 28th Oct and a goodie bag full of crafty bits from "Lets Make Cards".

 This week the DT  got to play with Debbies "Albert Snoozing" digi stamp. Just right for the boys !! For my card I chose to use blue tones and water coloured the image using felt tip pens. I didn`t think my attempt at making a "fishing fly" was too bad either!!

One For The Boys

This week our challenge at The Crafty Pad is : One For The Boys !!

Our lovely sponser is: Crafty Emma`s Store and the winner gets to spend £10 in store !!

All the team got to play with Debbies fab Pocket Watch + elements which can be found HERE

I decided to make this exploding memory box. My late Dad loved watches so I will put some photos of him in it.

All the watches have been raised and glazed and then a bow of ribbon on top. The outer paper has been crumpled and then aged inked and some of the inner panels have been run through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder of watches and cogs and then inked over the top to bring out the embossing.

More inspiring projects by the DT team can be found on The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog (link at top) Have fun !!
