Crafts Galore Encore February Challenge
This year seems to go at least as fast as the previous one, if not faster. January just disappeared without a trace. The good thing is time is rushing towards towards spring. I felt so sad last autumn watching the sunsets from the back of our house feeling nostalgic about the loss of summer. Right now, although I realise that the the worst of the winter is probably yet to come, we are moving towards longer days and more light.
And what better way to celebrate lighter and longer days than craft something colourful? Or craft in general! Our February challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore is to use a stamp or digi on your creation. It doesn't have to be a card, as long as it has a stamp or digi it qualifies. So me and the rest of the DT are super-excited to see all your fabulous creations in our gallery. Our sponsors for February are Kenny K and Jellypark who are both giving away digis to the winners. There will be both randomly selected winners and DT favourite winners, so plenty of chances to pick up prizes! We are also looking for a creative crafter to join our happy and friendly DT so if you are interested, hop over and have take a look.
The DT is showcasing plenty of inspiration using Kenny K images. For my card, I used the Texting Friends digi stamp and a sentiment from Social Media Sentiments. I used Copics to colour the image and the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling card die to cut out the image. I also die cut a piece of brightly coloured DSP for the background, and the "Hello" using Stampin' Up Hello You thinlits. I matted everything onto two shades of purple card and added some colourful adhesive gems for embellishment.
I'm entering the card into the following challenges:
