C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 13....

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge this week is an inspirational photo.Oh how I wish it was like this photo in Largs today - alas not - the sky's have opened and it's well and trult misearable!
I wanted to make a project using the shells and bits I collected on my holiday last month. It's another one of the bubble painting backgrounds. My image of Octavia coloured with copics and a crackle glaze finnish. I like the effect it gives - makes her look like she is underwater.

There is a lovely Joanna Sheen book as a prize from Anesha - thanks Anesha! Pop over and see all the really different projects this week!
I was having a bad day on Monday as my E00(skin white) copic had run out...what was I to do. Decided a refil was the best option - because I am obvoiusly going to go through alot of this colour. So did a wee search online. I want to say that I am thrilled with the service I recieved from Stamp Galaxy .
A great price on Copic Ciao £1.89, refils £4.60 and Sketch £3.90. Super fast servise - with me yesterday - how brill is that! I should say I have no conections with this company - just wanted to say thanks!
