A New Challenge


Crafters Companion challenge
Today sees the launch of the Crafters Companion monthly challenge blog.  Anyone can enter, as long as you use products that are on the website – stamps (SCACD, Penny Black, Popcorn, Cute Companions, Joanna Sheen, etc, etc, etc) or any image from any of their CD’s.  Sara is putting up a fab prize - and it’s a surprise  collection that has not even been released yet, so be one of the first to get your hands on it
The first challenge is a sketch that has been designed by Leann.
 Sketch 1 June 2010 - Leann
I have decided to go with one of Jayne Nestorenkos gorgeous Patchwork Polly Stamps for my first DT card.
003I have used Distress Ink re-inkers available from Crafters Companion Website  to colour this cute image the colours uses are:
Shabby Shutter, Victorian Velvet, Tattered Rose, Antique Linen and Tea Dye.
The lovely two tone 25mm Hybrid tea rose and 15mm pink tea roses and tiny rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The papers are a Nitwits download and the sentiment is a stamp from the same Patchwork Polly Set. I have used Nesties for the matting and layering also available from Crafters Companion website.
I do hope you can come and join us in this New Monthly Challenge,  don’t forget thee is the most fantastic prize to be won. 
I will be back later today with a couple of new images from Secret Crafters they are awesome, I am afraid the dreaded migraine has hit again this morning so I am off to take an Imigran tablet so lets hope it works.
