Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #4: Sharon’s Itinerary

It’s time for a new Itinerary from the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! We DICC girls are so thrilled that we have had so many participants with such a new challenge blog! A whopping 91 people played along with our last challenge! Thank you so much for joining in on the fun!

Let’s get to this round’s itinerary, shall we? It comes from Sharon.

Sharon's Itinerary
1. Not a Card!
2. Black & White
3. Celestial
4. Buttons
5. Unusual Sentiment ie. not “Happy Birthday” or “Best Wishes” etc.
6. Charms
7. Wire
8. Fancy Fold
9. Fibers
10. No images

I made a tag using one of my newest Sweet Pea Stamps acquisitions. I told you it was going to be a very Sweet Pea week! ;)

From Sharon’s Itinerary, I used #1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 9. I used the image In the Wind from ching chou kuik’s Sheet 25 Plate 70. Isn’t she beautiful? I love the dreamy look on her face.

I colored her with my pencils and watercolor markers. And of course I had to use Stickles on her wings…in my favorite color, Stardust. The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea Stamps. You can click on any of my pictures to see it bigger.

I had this button in my stash, and the star charm is from Fire Mountain Gems.

Here you can really see the glitter. I used an eyelash yarn and a faux suede yarn for my tassel, which was looped through an American Crafts eyelet.

I invite you now to check out the rest of the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge girls, listed in my sidebar. We all have very different projects, which is what makes the DICC challenges so much fun! Won’t you join us? You have 2 weeks to add your new project, using at least 3 of the items on the Itinerary. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Have an inspiring day!!!
