I got it covered

Monday and lots of things to do but first to share the new challenge at Incy Wincy this week.
Our theme this week is Anything but a card.
Our sponsors are Fantastic Ribbons
and Pink Gem Designs

For my anything but a card I decided to use some of the material that I used to make the Jubilee Bunting to make a cover for a diary….

Once I made the cover I used some of the other scraps from the bunting material to make some flowers.
I used some cellophane from a bunch of flowers to protect the material when gluing the flowers into place.
The glue is Studio mat multi medium and as it dry's mat you don’t see it at all. so clever! Not tried that before this is a new one for me! think I am defiantly going to do this again though!
So its a case of cutting them out gluing the edges so they don’t fray and then once dry glue them into place.

Then I added some clear buttons, and a red heart button and some twine with pin flair glue.

I also made a bookmark with a few beads and a strawberry Charm.

Challenges I am entering are:
Inspire Me Fridays – Always Anything Goes
Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Raise The Bar – Red, White & Blue
Simply Create Too - Use it Two Times – the tattered florals die for all the flowers.
Wags 'n Whiskers - Try a New Technique – using multi medium on material.
Come and Get It Challenges - Anything but a card.
PanPastel UK Challenge - Schools Out OR Buttons and Bows – Buttons and Bows out of twine
