June Challenge Week 1

We've got a fun challenge for you this month - and it's not as difficult as you might think when you give it a go!

The idea is not to see a single die-cut as the "finished" product - take a look at it creatively - if you cut it again with another die - could it be more exciting or give you a different look?  Maybe the word you want to spell out doesn't fit on your card, but if you die cut the next letter into the previous one then it would?

Here are the first of the DT's examples to give you more of an idea if you're struggling with the concept.

I've used Wplus9's Flower Doodles dies cut into MFT's Pierced Square Stax Dienamics
and a sentiment from Wplus9's All Year Cheer

Using Concord and 9th's Heartstring die, pieced with Watercolor Wishes papers with a sentiment from Avery Elle's Wine Bottle Elle-ments die cut into it and inlaid with a contrasting colour paper.  Edges highlighted with a water colour pencil.

Link up to the challenge page when you've finished for a chance to win £20 to spend in store.  Deadline is 10pm on Sunday 25th June.

As always you MUST use at least ONE product from the range we sell in store to be eligible for the prize and for the DT to comment.  Please ensure you list the items you use in your description, particularly if the qualifying item you've used is not obvious.
