Zig Zags

Hello there to all my friends and followers,

If it's Friday it must be time for another challenge over at the Alphabet Challenge blog.  This week sees us come to the end of our alphabet with the letter 'Z' and Mari has chosen 'Zig Zags' as the theme - so we would love to see your projects showing the use of zig zags somewhere.  The possibilities are endless - here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I made a 6x6" card and used small squares of paper from my Tim Holtz 'Vintage Shabby' paper stack to cover the card.  I have an old set of acrylic stamps with lots of different types of stitching on them, so thought the good old 'zig zag' stitch was a perfect way to join the squares together to make a background.  

The image is called 'Love Boat' by LOTV and is coloured with my trusty Promarkers and a little distress ink sponged on for the water.  I also added a little crystal glitter in the champagne glasses and a few bubbles to show the fizz.  The 'Sent with Love' sentiment is also LOTV.

Embellishments include a piece of turquoise 'ric rac' braid which also illustrates the 'zig zag' theme and a couple of turquoise brads in the top corners.

Don't forget to pop over to the blog and check out some more inspiration from my talented teamies.

I shall look forward to seeing your entries for the last letter of our alphabet and remember, we will be starting all over again with the letter 'A' in a couple of weeks time :)

Hugz, Jan xx
