I always like to use my weekend posts for challenges. This is the first time I’ve entered this particular challenge and I must say it stretched me enormously. Here’s the ‘inkspiration’ for the challenge: Great colours don’t you think? I wasn’t quite sure about the Peekaboo Peach but managed to work it in quite nicely.

This is day 4 in my Window Box Thinlit Die Box series. I do hope you’re enjoying it? I’d love to read your comment – please leave one below. The way these open reminds me of the old Pac-Man games of years ago. You could make it on one colour and punch or die cut a circle out for an eye. Just a thought. I seemed to need extra fingers and less glue for this project, but I think you’ll… Read more »
