Celebrate in Style


We're celebrating over on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge its their 1st Blog Anniversary and the DT was lucky enough to have some fab Chris Dark digi images given to us.
Now my printer and Digi's don't like each other and I was given another tip to try which was to use hairspray and heat, well it looked like it worked till I sat down and started to colour. The hairspray made the card stock react to prism pencils and it still smudged although I think I managed to hide the worst.
Even so I was really pleased how the digi turn out, there was a lot of flesh to colour and although the camera has washed out some of the colour in real life it turned out well.
The papers are pebbles and really busy so I decided to leave decorations to the minimum and the sentiment is Butterfly Kisses that I brought a couple years ago at The Make it Show.
One of the prizes on Secret Crafter is a DT place.
It's a good job I managed to do this card before the wireless thingy turn up. Why does it have to be me that has to deal with technology by the time I had finished it had used up quite a lot of my valuable craft time but its working and DD can stop hogging my PC.
Happy World Card Making Day
Ok this post is becoming too long and I've waffled on long enough, plans for the weekend, card making today to get up to date so I can finish the Secret Project at Scrapbuddies crop tomorrow .
