Week 11 and another tutorial

We find as a team lots of inspiration for projects from the Craft Stamper magazine. There are always interesting projects with lots of techniques in every issue as well as a fab freebie stamp.

The Tutorial this week was inspired by Februarys issue - using recycled materials. So we had a go at producing a wall hanging using corrugated card board.

Michelle, Emma and I were lucky to go on a craft retreat earlier this month so it was the ideal opportunity to play together. Michelle and I played first using paints, sprays and masks to produce a nature themed one - see Michelles entry. Then Emma came along and wowed us with orange and pink! producing a funky modern feel wall hanging which you can see in the tutorial.

Our Tutorial is sponsored by The Craft Barn and all products used for the tutorial can be purchased there - the same with the natures "bird song" hanging as Michelles entry. The craft barn are kindly offering a £15 voucher to spend on goodies in their online store - so the lucky randomly picked winner can add to their stash hopefully inspired by our fab DT.

IMPORTANT RULE - if you want to be entered into the prize draw this week you must link both Tuesday Taggers and The Craft Barn in your entry. Your entry this week must also be just for Tuesday Taggers.
So what do you have to do? well this weeks challenge is to produce a wall hanging - can be anything you like - whatever you are inspired to do theme, colour, texture, shape of your choosing.

Here are the DT take on the challenge
