* Crafts Galore Encore: Little Friends



It's the start of another month, spring is in the air and it's time for another Anything Goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore.

This month we are sponsored by Nikky from Polkadoodles.

I used the digi stamp Winnie Sunshine Delight - Little Friends and I coloured it with Copic markers. I decided to fussy cut it and add it to my own background. I blended Distress Oxide inks in Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Broken China, then stamped and heat embossed in white, using the Stampers Anonymous Vine and Roses set.
I grounded the stamp with washi tape and popped the image on foam pads for some dimension. I used a printed sentiment, inked the edges and added a bakers' twine bow.

Many thanks to Nikky at Polkadoodles for generously sponsoring and supporting this challenge. We hope you'll pop over to the Etsy 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.
