First Crafty Girls Challenge of 2014!

The new challenge over at Crafty Girls starts today.  We were lucky to be sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, and as the theme is “Anything Goes” for this challenge, I headed straight for this great Candy Jar image:

crafty girls 9 jan 14 fullI coloured the image with Pro-Markers, sticking to bold, juicy colours for the sweets.  To emphasise the glass, I drew a little pale blue ink onto my blender pen and added little light touches around the edge of the glass.   I then added Glossy Accents to the whole of the glass jars, the sweets popping out of the top and the bubbles of colour on the paper.   The papers were part of a lovely freebie set from Cute and Useful – they were perfectly coloured to compliment the bright, bold sweets.  The sentiment was cut on the Silhouette and a piece of bubblegum pink glittercard was popped in behind it.

I hope you’ll have a chance to pop over and have a look at the rest of the inspirational pieces created by my team-mates, and I look forward to seeing your entries in the challenge.
