I'm back!! 

Its time for a new challenge over on the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog, which has been set by our gorgeous Julie from Team 1 and she has chosen...

blue skies.  

For this challenge Julie would like you to use shades of blue on your projects.  We will of course accept skin and hair colours and very slight touches of other colours i.e. grass but the predominant colours must be blues.  Don’t forget you can make anything you want, it doesn’t have to be a card, all creations are welcome.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letraset products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.
Our generous sponsor this week is Little Claire Designs and they are offering one lucky winner a beautiful stamp set called ‘Changing Birdhouse’.

I made a bodge with this one at first and used too much colour in my DT make so last night a little emergency card had to be made...but lets be honest..its never bad to need to have a lil crafty time! he he!! and oh boy did my little sailor boy turn out cute.

To crop off his feet I simply taped my little die cut circle over where he was going to print out adding an extra strip of my magic selotape over the part where his little legs would be, the printer ink goes onto the seloptape and when you peel it off, there's your image cropped! easy peesy and ooooh so cute for this little circle!! my magic tape is low tack so peels off the image piece right away when you take it out of the printer, the reason this piece below has some white paper stuck on it is because I took off my image piece and left this bit of tape on the scrap piece overnight!!)

A little bit of colour, some whispy dotty clouds and wohoooo! I saved my butt just in time!! he he he!!

Right, thats me for today I promise!!
