DCM & 4x4 Friday

I got this DCM card made yesterday but was too tired to upload it after I had struggled to get a decent photo. Then promptly forgot all about it today until I remembered it was the Saturday Stamper & I coldn't get online to see what this week's challenge was. Server problems are to blame & unfortunately they can't make them work any faster. Back up servers just aren't powerful enough to cope with all our internet hungry homes! The card is just something rustic I made & don't even like now I look at it. The bits are all from a kit of card making supplies I bought about two years ago & never used.

The 4x4 Friday challenge is Faces. I love this little girl's face. She is on the stamp in my tag below. The stamp CI. I stamped the corners of the 4in square card with these floral stamps in purple & then inked the rest of the page in gold & touches of orange. The girl is stamped onto a jigsaw piece. These 4x4 inc pieces are not cards, just a square which at later dates I might add to the front of 5in cards or larger as toppers. Or I might make a minibook of them all, the possibilities are endless I just need to feel better.

I like your face set on the puzzle piece...like the flourishes, too. Very nice 4x4.

Like you said the 4x4 have so much possibilities Paula. Funny how we create something and then we go hmm I don't like it. I thought your card was very cute though.

2 great cards Paula, I love the hessian you have used on the first one I use it quite often but I agree with you about corrugated card, I'm not very keen on it. i had to rip up my welly box to get some! The 4x4 is so beautiful, great colours and such a pretty stamp
