Crafts Galore Encore: Southern Bouquet


 Today sees that start of a new challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The theme is always 'Anything Goes' and you can enter up to 3 different projects The challenge runs all month until mid day (GMT) 29th September.

Jan's Digi Store is very kindly sponsoring this month's challenge.

Here is my project using the lovely Southern Bouquet digi:

I coloured the digi stamp with Copics, choosing to use Jan's pre-coloured digi as guidance. I fussy cut around the image leaving a thin white border. I decided to make a background. I heat embossed in white using a background stamp from AALL & Create and smooshed the card in puddles of Distress Oxide inks. I used a piece of torn washi tape for the vase to sit upon and added a sentiment on a black mat. The edge of the background was inked in black and popped on a black mat.

Many thanks to Jan at Jan's Digi Store for supporting the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge.

Please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DT's 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.
