This week's challenge was set by the Urban Faeries. This is what they set:
"For our first ever challenge, we would like you to........
1) On April 13th, Woolworths (known as the Big W) would have been 100 years old, you need to use a monogram on your layout (10 points)
2) In honour of our aussie scrapper, Winnie, we would like you to use something foreign on your layout - this can be either foreign to scrapping or from another country (5 points)
3) Use either complementary colours OR your favourite colour on your layout (5 points)
4) Scraplift from your favourites gallery, and remember to give credit where credit is due (5 points)
5)Distress or tear paper (5 points)
I have done this in digi using The Ladybug Love kit by The Gifted Goose. I have used Katie Pertiet torn paper set from the Jessica Sprague lesson. I have made my photo sepia and then bought the colour of the ladybird back. The alphas are a freebie from Digital Scrapbook Place called Red Puffy Paint. I meet all the criteria set to claim the full 30 points. The title for the layout is french for ladybird (the foreign part of the challenge). The scraplift is of Claire Wheatley's The Best of Times (Scrapbook Inspirations magazine April 2009)
