Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Anyone for Volleyball?

The lovely Louise set the monthly challenge over on the CMLI group on CraftBubble and the theme was 'London 2012'.

Louise created some lovely inspirational cards and atc's which you can see over on her blog. I decided to pick a sport and found a lovely digi that was just right!

This cute bear is Barry Beach 1 from StampFairy and is coloured with promarkers.

I distressed the image with my new ink dusters using DI tumbled glass and memento cantaloupe. All the papers were from 12 x 12 paper scraps and I used a yellow spica atyou glitterpen. Sentiment is by Kraftin Kimmie stamped in versamark and sapphire mica powder. Gems and ribbon from stash.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Sketch Saturday - fabby sketch
Saturday Challenge - Olympic or Sporty
Allsorts Challenge - Distressing
One Stop Craft Challenge - Olympics/Sports
Charisma Cardz - Favourite Animal
Waste not Wednesday  - neglected papers
