Two Posts In One Day I Hear You Cry!!!!!!!

This card was entered into the DoCrafts A-Z Challenge this week. You were asked to include weaving and watercolouring......how out of my comfort zone is this!!!!! So decided to take them up on it and this is the result. For such a simple basic card it took forever!!! mostly wondering how to adhere the woven piece onto the project and die cut without fraying everything........backto basics and trusty double sided tape with backing left on to die cut and then very gingerly removed.
Will also be entering this for the Design team call at
Here's the result       http://beyondgrey.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/dt-call-2013.html

Thought I'd be a bit aesthetic and take it against the blinds!!! It sort of reminded me of the wooden style of the beach huts1 Yeah, yeah, I hear you say. If you think so!!! Tee Hee.Well having struggled with the woven sections who was I to throw out all those scraps and bits and bobs?? So what did I do.......made another card to enter the challenge.
Here it is, same techniques, just different stamp, but my watercolouring is slightly better....no Picasso me!!
Thanks for popping bye.......till tomorrow.....More to upload if the computer plays ball!!Bye for now
