Creative Fingers Challenge #104

A new Challenge starts today at Creative Fingers

The theme is as always Anything Goes....

This challenge we're being sponsored by

 The Scrapoholic Candy Shop


Fabrika Fantasy.

I have used two of Fabrica Fantasy's Pirate Parrot 1 and Pirate parrot 3 - precoloured.

And yes I was tempted to make ATCs but no...

I have put them on pegs to make puppets - did I say that this week is 'playtime'?

(I may make some ATCs later...)
But then I needed to make a boat to put them on...

The next picture shows the back view. It is three dimensional but if the bunting is untied at either side the card will lie flat and go in a large envelope.

To make my boat I used some elements from My Sailmate From Kris B at Imagine That!
with some bunting from the Range. The mast is reinforced by a skewer but other than that it is just printed card, arranged round a box like structure.

Why don't you pop over and take a look...?

Do go over and see the winners of the last Creative Fingers Challenge
 and what the CF DT have made!!

Hope you will join the Creative Fingers Challenge!

Happy Crafting!
