This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

You Bring the Sunshine - Scrap Africa Challenge no.26

Hello Everyone

We have a really super new challenge over at Scrap Africa here. Tusia Lech is our Special Guest Designer and we have a whole new 7 Dots Studio Collection up for grabs.

The challenge is about altered chipboard.

So to tell you about the challenge, it is "Chipboard with a Difference" and it means you need to use some chipboard on your layout, card or altered piece, but cannot be left raw and must be altered. This challenge is hosted by the lovely Ada Nicholls.

Here is my take on it.

My chipboard flowers were embossed with powder and then heated. Some of them were pattern stamped with ink and them embossed.

On the background I did some gesso stencilling and then spritzed it with Enmarc Dazzles - Sunflower.  I also did some random stamping with a BoBunny stamp.

The flowers are BoBunny and Prima and the papers, stickers and accents are Hello Sunshine from BoBunny.

Please pop over to the Scrap Africa blog to see what Tusia and the other 7 Dots Studio Design Team created. They really made some awesome projects.

Have a super Saturday.
