Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - August Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to the August Crafty Wednesday challenge taking place right here on my blog. I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you'll join in the fun this month too! There were many fabulous creations in July, thank you all so much for sharing. My commenting was a bit delayed as I've been out of the country for the last half of July and not on a computer but I did manage to visit you all yesterday. Always so nice to see your crafty makes, and be sure to scroll down to see who made the top picks with a twist.

I'm sure most of you know by now, the theme is now always............

Anything Goes

and instead of a challenge theme there will be a top pick twist, meaning the top picks will each have something in common. But nobody knows what the twist will be (not even me) and will be inspired by YOUR creations. So do link up all your new or recently created crafty makes (any type of craft) for your chance to have your project featured next month!

Here is my share for this month:

The butterfly fairy Aurora by Lavinia is the star of the card. She's been stamped with Versafine Onyx ink onto the card front which I used the MFT rectangle stencil on along with a background stamp from the Visible Image set Butterfly Effect. Sentiments are from Penny Black (Snippets) and the same Visible Image set. I've also done some stenciling and inked up the card front edges with lilac ink. Somehow I managed to get an ink blob onto the card so I added a couple of punched mini flowers. Wink of Stella was applied to the wings and flowers.

Sorry about the brighness on the photo below, it was extremely sunny at the time I took the photo and this angle surely wasn't the best.

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 twist from the July entries is.......... Christmas in July.

And here they are in the order of entry:

No 26 Cornelia

No. 28 Mummylade

 No. 53 JanR

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 Wednesday August 30th 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

A pretty card using Lavinia's Aurora and the sentiments stamped in lilac carry the nice soft feel of the card.
