Friendly Challenge.

Hello and Happy Friday!
I have had a wonderful day today spent at my dear friend Helen's house mostly in her scrap shed crafting and chatting, only going inside for a scrummy homemade soup and bread lunch (thanks Chloe for making the soup!)
Every time Helen and I meet up we compare our challenge layouts with each other and this time our challenge was to use some webbing that Helen purchased recently on one of our crafty shopping spree's!

This is the webbing, which came in pure white (the piece on top has been inked).
Now unfortunately both Helen and I had grand ideas about what we were going to do with this webbing but it was not to be! The material that it is made from did not want to be punched, die-cut or even used as a mask successfully!
So both of us had to resort to basic use.
Here is my page and all I did to the webbing in the end was spritz it with green Shimmer Mist and use it as a background to my papers and a backdrop to the flowers I placed on the page.

Helen has used the webbing in the same way as me but just kept it white as it complimented her photo's. (those were the days when the children were happy with some netting and a Mac D's cardboard crown!!!)

Some lovely flowers that she cut with her Nestabilities die and shaped for dimension.
I loved how Helen altered her wooden heart by inking it and then adding some glitter glue. So cute!
Now even though Helen and I thought that the webbing has limited use we both agreed that we still liked the effect it gave when used as a backing material. So you may still see it on my future layouts.
Before I left to go home we decided that our next challenge will be 'Before & After' DIY pages!
A new one for both of us, so a great challenge.
Thanks for dropping in and seeing our layouts, hope you liked them.
