C.R.A.F.T Challenge 18

This week the challenge at C.R.A.F.T is to use no backing paper, and for my Design Team card I have used a digi stamp from Doodle Palace called Seana and Scamp.

On the light green card behind the image I used the new cuttlebug daisy embossing folder. I coloured the squirrels with pencil crayons and added a bit of glitter .
The flowers are stamped, heat embossed and cut out with sticky pearls added to the middle. The smaller flowers are punched out.

The prize this week has been kindly donated by Debbie, from The Crafty Pad, this Percy Stargazing stamp.Go and have a look at the lovely projects the rest of the C.R.A.F.T DT have made, and we look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Fingerless Mitten Gloves

I made these for a friend for her birthday, a pair of fingerless gloves with an attached mitten flap that can be pulled on or off.

I got the pattern from a book called Knitted Accessories by Claire Crompton. The wool I used is Sirdar Donegal Tweed double knitting.
