Challenge #427 - Chalkboard Technique

 Hey LIMettes!


We have a third challenge starting this month so that means it is Lucky Dip time. We thought it might be fun to revive an old technique to see how you all give it a modern twist. Under our cue card are a couple of links to some YouTube videos that show you how to do this chalkboard technique. We hope you'll all have fun trying this one out.  


Here are some links to show you what it is all about:

Challenge #426 - Doodles

 Hey LIMettes!


Some of the 'trends' during the time we all spent in lockdown seemed to be learning to draw, colour or doodle and I'm sure one or two of you joined in with a few of the daily or weekly instructional sessions. So we thought we'd capitalise on that today and give you a chance to show off your new-found skills. Our recipe is to add a bit of doodling to your card.


It doesn't have to be a work of art so please don't be put off because a couple of simple lines or dots will work too. We really look forward to seeing what you create.
