Crafters Companion Challenge



The First of the month means its time for Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge. This month we are changing the rules for entry into the challenge, although the DT will all be using Crafters Companions images we have decided to open up the entries to any image from any company, so that gives you plenty of scope, but for those of you who do use a Crafters Companion image you will be entered into the Prize Draw twice, so you have two chances of winning, does that sound good!!! It is even better when you know what this months candy is


Our fellow DT Member Leann has designed a fabulous sketch for us this month so I do hope you can come and join us.

layout 3 - square card


I didn’t manage to do much crafting yesterday, I meant to but I started spring cleaning the Craft Room at 8am and didn’t finish until about 5.30pm, but hopefully now I know where everything is again.



I have decided to use another Crafters Companion SWALK Image for this card, I was looking through all the images and I decided this one would make a fabulous Christmas Card by changing the Rain into Snow, I think it has worked, the snow actually looks better IRL than in the photo.  The Paper is from the SWALK CD and I have used the colouriser feature to get the colour I wanted, I don’t use this feature enough, it is a real help when you haven’t got papers to match your colouring.  The Lush lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts , and the snowflakes have been punched with Martha Stewart Snowflake Punches and then glittered with Glamour Dust.

The Copics I have used to colour the image are as follows:

Flesh – E21, E00, E000, E0000

Hair -  E71, E70, E40

Coat & boots – R17, R05, R02

Umbrella – R17, R05, R02, R01, R00

Skirt – YG71, YG73


Do hope we will see your entries this Month, you can combine your entries with any other challenge and the £30 Website Voucher is well worth winning there are some great products on the website.

Pop back this evening when I will post a Little Candy for you
