Make it Snappy Friends

Good morning folks.  Hope you are all well this Monday morning.  We have a new challenge starting over at Crafting from the Heart.  Theme is 'Always Anything Goes'.

Our sponsors for this challenge are: -

The image I have chose to use this week is one from Bugaboo Stamps called 'Make it Snappy Friends'. 

One thing I love about digi stamps is that I can have them whatever size I want and also if I take them into my CraftArtist programme I can add backgrounds to them, which is what I have done on this one.   My background paper is also from CraftArtist too.
I then printed it out onto Copic X-Press Smooth card which is my card of choice.  This card is so smooth and perfect for marker pens.
I have coloured my image in using a mixture of chameleon pens and for the hair distress ink pens.  Please don't ask me why I used two different mediums this time, I just felt like it. 
I fussy cut it out using Brian, my BSC, and then cut black mat out too.  Yes I know what you are probably thinking, why use Brian, it is a square, but Brian cuts better than me, far better.
My flowers are from spellbinders as were the leaves.

If you want to see more ideas from our design team and also enter your own super creation into the challenge follow the link HERE.

We also have a Facebook page where you can meet and chat to other crafters and show off your own creations too.  You can also join in with the 'just for fun' challenges held on a regular basis.  Follow the link HERE to our Facebook page. 

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.  Take care
