Challenge #61 - Faux Grid

Thank you to everyone who joined in with challenge #60, it was lovely to see your beachy creations.

As it is my birthday this week i will be giving some blog candy to one lucky person chosen at random. I have yet to put the candy together so have no picture but it will include ribbons, brads, eyelets, stamped images and no doubt some bits and bobs from my shop :-)


Our challenge this week is Pat's idea :~
Faux Grid

Our DT have come up with some fabulous examples of what a faux grid is but if you would like to see a few tutorials then please check these out..........
Beate's - SCS - tutorial
Dawn's Stamping Studio video tutorial
Theresa's- Crafting the web tutorial


Check out what our lovely DT have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!

Can I ask why this blog doesn't use Mr. Linky anymore? It was so much easy to look at everyone's cards.
The DT did a beautiful job with this challenge.

I used a bone folder to score and sanded the front to make it pop. Quick and easy ;)
