Week 29 - Theme

 Goodness, what a fabulous response to our INKY challenge!
There were so many truly stunning entries and the range of techniques was so extensive and varied.
Wonderful, wonderful work, thank you all SO much!
Choosing our showcase this time will certainly be a tricky task!

 Now onto this week's challenge which is a 'Theme' and we would like to see
Things that Move
This could be interpreted in a variety of ways...an actual moving component on your card, so a pop up, a shaker, a spinner, a charm, a tag... we could go on... 
On the other hand your card could have an image of something capable of movement, so the scope for that is almost infinitesimal!
Whatever you do, we're sure that all you LIMettes will be totally creative!

This card, using the SU Joie stamp set has several butterflies on it... all capable of movement, and the cut-out one is only attached through the body section and so the wings can be raised.
It was made with a mixture of emboss resist and overstamping plus a little inking too.
This one, for a newborn, has Pink Petticoat paper and an SU image embossed in silver and coloured with Copics. The ribbon holds a small silver coloured charm, which can waggle from side to side (the moving element) and the name has been added using Cuttlebug's Baby Face Alphabet.
A quick tip when adding small bits and pieces like these letters, is to add Double Sided Tape to the back of the card before running it through the'bug, so all you have to do is peel and stick once they are cut.
The baby carriages in the image (IRL) are also capable of movement.
I had intended making a spinner card this week, but we have had our grandchildren staying and so craft time was zilch... however you may like to see a few spinner and slider cards I made in true Blue Peter style... earlier!

My card base is Stampin up Crumb Cake, The plant Stamp is Stampabilities   I thought the leaves matched the scrap of Stamping Up Speciality DP 'Sweet & Sour' The butterfly [my something that moves] is Papermania. I guess you could say the plant moves too! I stamped using Versamark Ultrafine, 'Onyx Black' which I thank Vicky for, as she recommend it last week for its proper blackness, I love it!

  17. Hi Ladies
    Just to say i have been trying to add comments to some of the entries. Blogger keeps telling me that i am not authorised to see my page and then logs me out so i have to log in again every time. Frustrated that i can't comment and am hoping this is not too much of a problem for others. Think Blogger is playing up again so will try again tomorrow:-)

    I have had to post here using the URL selection and not my Google account. Some sites are like this and others are not. Possibly down to the templates used...
