Be Crafty and Craft - A new Challenge blog

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Here we are at Friday and this a very exciting blog post for me as I am on the  Design Team for the Be Crafty and Craft Challenge Blog. Today is sees the launch of our very first challenge. We are so lucky to have sponsors who will be providing us with images and prizes for our winners. The challenges are always anything goes. So there is lots of scope to have a go.


The image I chose to use was Koi Maid  from  Rosey Hearts Digis Etsy Shop  who is our sponsor this time and the prizes will come from there. The image was coloured with Promarkers. I enjoyed making the background. I inked all over the page with Distress ink and then I spritzed it with water and blotted that with some paper towel. I love the speckled finish this gives. At the bottom I used a mask and Distress ink to create the seaweed at the bottom of the card. The last touch was to stamp the sentiment. 


I hope you  have a great weekend why not join us at the Be Crafty and Craft Challenge Blog

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie
