A Little Bit Crafty

Good Morning Everyone

How are we all?  Good I hope.


Wow - it's the first of September already!  Sheesh, where has this year gone?!  Won't be long before the Christmas adverts are on television :oO

Well, seeing as it's the first of the month that means it's challenge time over at A Little Bit Crafty and we have an easy challenge for you this month which is "CAS" or "Clean and Simple".  Well, I say simple but it's not so simple to make a card without putting lots and lots of lovely embellies on it is it! ;o)

We have three very generous sponsors for the challenge who are:

Bugaboo Stamps - 7 Free Digi's


Delicious Doodles - 4 Free Digi's 


Craft All Day - £10 Voucher

How good is that!

So, if you want to be in with a chance to win one of these most excellent prizes then make sure you get your entries in over at A Little Bit Crafty and make sure you check out what the wonderful DT ladies have made for your inspiration.  Remember, it doesn't have to be a card, it can be anything that you have hand-crafted.

Here is my card for the challenge:


I thought seeing as the kids are going back to school this week I would make a card themed around it.

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Bugaboo - Fanny - Calendar Months - September

The image has been coloured with Copics as follows:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E55 E53 E51 E50
Clothes:  T6 T5 T4 T3 T2 / YR18 YR14 YR12
Tights:  T6 T5 T4 T3 T2
Shoes:  YR18 YR14 YR12
Books:  E27 E24 E23 / E44 E43 E42 E41
Apples:  R39 R27 R24 R22 / YG67 YG63
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I am still practising with my Copic Air Compressor and have outlined the image with T1
The papers have been edged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink
I have used Glossy Accents on the apples too to give them some dimension

And that's it.

I hope you will come and join in the fun with us.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
