Keep it simple at That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone
Hope those of you in the UK are soaking up all this lovely sunshine we are having at the moment. 
Today see's the start of our new challenge over at that's Crafty Challenge blog
and our theme for this coming fortnight is


I have used the adorable "Jack" from Carabelle Studio which I have coloured using Spectrum Noir pencils, firstly with a pink and then making him a little grubby with some brown and greys. Isn't he adorable.I have added a tiny button to add dimension to his stitched eye.

you can also see the background that I have partially added by inking up a button mask with an assortment of distress inks and then using the mask as a stamp, to do this I masked off Jack prior to colouring him in. Finally I added my text which is from Tim Holtz #Hashtag set.
sorry about the quality of the photo's but I had a terrible problem with the light.
We would love it you came over Here and joined in with us.
One lucky winner will win £20 to spend in the store online and there is loads of fab stuff to choose from.
Hopefully we'll see you over there.
thanks for stopping by
