Crafts Galore Encore - Theme use a Digi or a stamped image somewhere on your project.

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope that you have had a good weekend. As you read this I will be on my way back from Lincolnshire so this post will be scheduled. In my next post I will tell you what we did this weekend I might even add some photos. If you know me on Facebook you probably already know.

Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog and the theme is use a Digi image or a Stamp. This time we had a wonderful sponsor Art by Miran  who provided the team with images to use and will be supplying the prize for the winner.

The image I used is called Suzie Snowflake.

I do like my mauves and purples so that is how I coloured the image. The white mat was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder and inked faintly with Dusty Concorde Distress ink. 

The sentiment came from a set by Indigoblu. This sentiment fits really well on this snowflake tag.

She is very pretty and I coloured her with Promakers. There were snowflakes in the image so I added the snowflake die cuts around about. All the dies are by Sue Wilson. 

One last look at the card. If you click on the logo below you will be taken to the Art by Miran website. 

Have a great week. It is back to school for me but I am part time so am lucky that  I get lots of time to craft. 

It has just been announced that the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog is having a design team call. All the details are on the blog. It is a very friendly place to be.
