Strings & Things At Incy Wincy


Good morning feels like a long time since I posted or crafted it's only been a week but feels much longer first of all I managed to whack my bad hand on the handle of the back door so couldn't do very much with it then on Tuesday morning I woke with a pain in my neck which got worse by the minute so off to the doctors I went and turns out my neck muscles had gone into spasm. Ouch didn't that hurt still aching now but I can at least keep my head upright and move without being in agony.
Onto the real reason I'm here today there is a new challenge over at Incy Wincy which this week is STRINGS & THINGS (ribbon, thread, string, fibre, etc.) and this week we are sponsored by the fantastic The Stamping Chef who very kindly gave the DT an image of their choice to work with I picked (Kn)OWL(edge) but only used half the image as I was having trouble colouring the whole thing.



I used my promarkers to colour him in and added glossy accents to his glasses. The paper is from MME Now & Then Mildred pad which I teamed with some Kraft card. I added some ribbon along the bottom of the card with a computer generated sentiment tag finished with a button and a twine bow. To fill the empty white space in the top right hand corner I added a couple of woodgrain enamel dots.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Make My Monday - End of Term
Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Things With Wings
I Love Promarkers - Things With Wings
Chocolate Coffee & Cards - For The Birds
The Stamping Chef - Anything Goes
