Crafty Catz Challenge blog - Anything Goes with the optional theme Layer it Up

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

Happy Friday the weekend is nearly here. It is going to be a busy one again. On Saturday we will be working on the wedding invitations all the card has come and we have a go ahead on the design. Saturday evening our daughter is coming to stay she is attending Minamicon in Southampton and will be dropped here after. Then the plan is to spend Mother's Day together we have a meal booked at a local Prezzo (one that isn't closing down).

The new challenge starts today on the Crafty Catz Challenge blog. The theme is Anything Goes with the optional theme of Layer it Up. Loving my layers this challenged suits me well. The sponsor is Digi Doodle Studios.

The new challenge starts today on the Crafty Catz Challenge blog. The theme is Anything Goes with the optional theme of Layer it Up. Loving my layers this challenged suits me well. The sponsor is Digi Doodle Studios. I made the backing paper myself. I used a shiny card stock ( I had some left over from our daughter's wedding) I got my inks out I don't have many. Onto a piece of cotton wool I put some surgical spirit then I picked up some of the ink. I dappled the inky cotton wool all over the card. I left it to dry and the colours moved around as it dried. It was a great way to use up some of the shiny card that was no use for making the table favours it just took too long for the glue to dry.

There are many wonderful images in the store click on the logo and you will be taken there, 


This the Birdy Digi Stamp and it is available HERE. She was printed onto Neenah card and coloured with Promarkers. I cut the image out by hand. 


I found all my bird dies and I cut them in blues and added them to the design. 


These little birds are so cute. 


My most useful Crafter's Companion die. 


Yet another bird. 


There you have it. I did enjoy making the background. I do like to experiment. 

Have a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Wimage is adorable and I am most impressed by your lovely handmade design paper. I have made paper in the past using shaving foam which gives an almost the same effect and smells devine into the bargain. Good luck with the invites. Hugs Mrs A.

Lovely card and a great background

Was the shiny card a white gloss? If so, I’ve done something similar with alcohol markers ( a cheap set of Sharpies) and rubbing alcohol
