* Crafts Galore Encore: Spring Bee


May brings another Anything Goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The sponsor this month is the fabulous Star Stampz who are offering 3 digi sets for the winner. 

Sarah from Star Stampz kindly gave the DT some digital stamps to work with and here is the card I made:

I used Spring Bee and coloured the images with Copic markers. I created a mixed media background from Distress Oxides, a honeycomb Tim Holtz stencil and AALL & Create background stamps.The fussy cut images were adhered directly onto the background. The sentiment is stamped and I added white and gold paint splatters and a little gold paint for a little sparkle.

Many thanks to Sarah at Star Stampz for generously sponsoring and supporting this challenge. We hope you'll pop over to the shop to see the many lovely products on sale.

Please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DTs wonderful designs. 

We'd love to see your creations.
Remember the challenge is always 'Anything Goes' and so you can create any type of project - it doesn't have to be a card and you can enter up to 3 times.
