Crafty Creations Challenge - a sketch!

This month I am enjoying a stint as guest DT member for Crafty Creations Challenges.....

The challenge at Crafty Creations this week is a layout.
I am still rather obsessed with my new copics and decided I would like to do something bright and cheerful using that fab bird Basic Grey paper from the Lime Rickey collection.
I used a first layer of printed acetate, with layers of Basic Grey, handmade orange paper and orange craft paper inked with red.

My sun is made from layers of Tim Holtz grungeboard
( half price at Silly Monkey Crafts at the mo) painted with Tim Holtz Crackle paint,
sanded, inked and constructed with eyelets.

Two rows of 3 eyelets with grungeboard layer to centre eyelet.
A few Basic Grey birdies cut from the fab paper.

My doodle of house and trees to co-ordinate coloured with copics.
Handwritten sentiment with Basic Grey rub-on swish....

this week Dt member Jaime is giving the lovely prize - the paper pack she uded in her project.
Pay Jamie's shop a visit.....

Please remember Crafty Creations are looking for a new member for the DT - have a look at the work the other members of the DT produce.....
