Getting Chopped

WOW the Chopped Challenge at Challenge Masters has really brought out some stunning work. You should drop by the website and check out the gallery HERE as there are some really inspirational creations there. And so this week - the final week - the challenge is on to add at least one "ingredient" from EACH of past 3 weeks on your layout.

Week 1:
lime green

Week 2:
dimensional flowers

Week 3:

Somehow I managed to add all but one on mine.... Not sure if it was good luck or good management but I'm really pleased with how it came up. Despite having so many elements it didn't end up looking cluttered which was worrying me - and how to use cardboard on such an elegant LO was a challenge as well....

I painted the background (which was white cardstock) with Kaiser paints (Pretty Pink, Blossom, Coastal Blue & Yellow) using a sponge, handmade some white dimensional flowers using a silky material and burning the edges using a candle then sewed in some little beads for the centres to hold all the layers together and ran a fine line of stickles around the edges for a bit of glitter. White doily, the circles are made from quilled bits of paper with a little stickles added, stitched flourishes are finished off with liquid pearls, scalloped edges around the outside handcut using the votive candle as a stencil, & finished off with two cardboard hearts that I also inked and added a bit of stickles to soften them a little.
