Hi crafters,
I hope you're all having a lovely Easter break and managed to find some time for crafting!  There's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Jacky has chosen a nice easy theme for us - 'Animals'.  We are kindly sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 3 digi images form their online store.
                                                      Crafty Sentiments Designs
This is an amazing prize and their images are all absolutely gorgeous!  I'm sure you all have a stamp or a digi that would suit this challenge so please join in and be in with a chance of winning this amazing prize.
We were lucky enough to have one of their images to play with and I chose this one which is called 'Stanley - Heart Wrapped Up',
I've made this card ready for my husband for our Wedding Anniversary which is at the end of this month.  I really wanted to try and colour in the image using black as I've seen some great examples of people's work lately and so I had a go!  The sentiment is from one of Lisa's CD's which was absolutely perfect for this image.  I added a white gel pen to the ribbon to continue the dotty theme and coloured the backing card in the same red as the heart so it matched perfectly!
I could only add a couple of banners and buttons as this is for hubby and I really had to try hard not to add anything else!!  Should I have put some die cut corners on the card or some more hearts?  I felt as though it needed something else but I walked away and left it as a CAS card!
This is a side view showing his lovely shiny nose which I did with a touch of glossy accents.
Well thanks for dropping by and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your gorgeous creations.
Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course follow the theme.
See you soon.
