Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - April Challenge

Hello and welcome to the Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday -April challenge taking place right here on my blog! I'm so glad you you stopped by and I would love to see you joining in this month too! It was so nice to see so many of you linking up in March and I enjoyed visiting you all! Be sure to scroll down to see my top picks.

As always at Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday the theme is now.....................

Anything  Goes,

and instead of a challenge theme there will be a "Top Pick Twist" but nobody knows what the twist will be (not even me) until the challenge closes as it will be inspired by YOUR creations. So do link up all your new or recently created projects for a chance to be featured. Remember, you may share anything crafty, handmade by you. It doesn't have to be a card.

Here is my April creation:

The focal point are these fun Lavinia Stamps fairies - Dancing Till Dawn.

For a change I dusted off my Dylusion sprays, I used After Midnight and Fresh Lime although you can barely see any fresh lime here... It's been years since I last used them and I don't really know how to properly use them so I just spritzed on a craft mat, a spritz of water and then I inked up some Mixed Media card. There was plenty of ink for several cardstock pieces, the first two were very intense but I liked how this piece turned out and I thought it was perfect for these Lavinia fairies so I made a night sky which happens to be this month's Lavinia stamps challenge so I may link this up there.

Related Products:

I used parts of Lavinia's poem Secret Night on the top right and bottom left stamped with Chipped Sapphire ink. I also used one of Lavinia's tiny stars stamp with Squeezed Lemonade ink. A quicky glue pen and loose glitter finishes off the card. Looks like I forgot to brush off some glitter specks from the Night of Navy (Stampin Up) card base.

I plan to link up with these blogging challenges:

March Top Picks with a Twist:

As mentioned previously, there is now a Top Pick Twist when it comes to my selection of Top Picks. Nobody knows what the twist will be - not even me - until the end of the month as the twist will be totally inspired by YOUR creations. This means the top picks will all have something in common.

The Top Pick Twist from the March entries is ..... For the Kids. How fabulous are these creations below!!?? So fun and creative!!

Congrats everyone, well deserved recognition! Your top pick logo is below. Feel free to post it to your own blogs if you like to :)

I will continue to pin the top picks to the dedicated Pinterest board, but will also include photo and link back to the original blogs/sites here. These will be removed at the start of the new challenge to stay in compliance with GDPR.

To join in this month's challenge please use the linky tool below. You have until Sunday April 30th 11:59 CST to play along!

A few things to remember:
  • You may combine with any other challenges.
  • You may use any brand of stamps/digis/products (no company restriction).
  • Please try to limit your linked up cards to 3 entries per month - it's ok if you end up with more than 3.
  • Please do include a link back here to my blog in your blog post.
  • Backlinking to a recent post IS allowed.
  • Digital products are allowed and very welcome but the final piece has to be a physical handmade creation, not just digital
