Galore Encore: Bear Hugs


Happy New Year!

(This is project 3 of 3 for today.) 

Today sees that start of a new year of challenges at Crafts Galore Encore

The theme is always 'Anything Goes' and you can enter up to 3 different projects.  The January challenge runs all month until mid day (GMT) 30th January.

This month's challenge is kindly sponsored by Helen from Hetty Clare Art and she is kindly giving the random winner 2 digi stamps from her Etsy Store.

Here is my project, a postcard to stick in my journal, using a beautiful image from Hetty Clare called Bear Hugs:

I coloured the image with Copic markers and fussy cut it, leaving a thin, white border. The background was made by applying Distress Oxide inks to an acrylic block, spritzing with water and using it as a stamp. I added stencilling and stamping for extra texture and interest. The edges of the card were inked in black and white splatters were added. The lovely sentiment, called Hug Need, is from Scribbles Designs.

Many thanks to Helen from Hetty Clare for her generous prize for our random winner.

Please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DT's wonderful designs and to enter our challenge. 

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.

Thanks for stopping by today!
