Fantasy Crafters #2 - Anything (Fantasy) Goes sponsored by Crafts & Me

Evening all, still playing catch up!  I had a good day today, in my new job I can can work from home from time to time, its funny how much you actually get through without office distractions.  Last week they gave us Skype and it is absolutely fantastic to work from home with.  If I want my boss for a quick question I just IM him, make a call easy peasy and no messing with the teeny council issue nokia, I can copy and paste a number and dial, its absolutely great!  I've started Bling Wars with my headset though.  Of course I had to custom design it hehe!  I'm a crafter, its what we do!

Anyway onto my next card of the evening and that is for Fantasy Crafters.  We're a new blog just finding our feet and its for anyone who loves fantasy themed cards and creations. We're also sponsored by Crafts & Me who have kindly given us a £10 digi voucher to spend in their store.



I absolutely love anything fantasy related so this gives me a good kick to get creating.  I also made a promise to myself to try and use different techniques and products that I have knocking about so for this one I got out my Inktense pencils which I've had for maybe 7 years or so and scribble a little and put away again.  I saw a card coloured on Kraft and I don't have any Kraft I can print on so had a rummage and pulled out some card that would go through the printer and just played.  I couldn't quite get the skin tones right so persevered and used a mix of the white, poppy red, willow and a dark brown scribbled on a piece of card and just mixed them and played and I think I've done alright!  Its on sparkly gold card so has a lovely shimmer to it.
I had a further rummage and found some shimmer sprays by Carol's Crafts I probably picked up at a show sometime years ago.  They have held their colours beautifully.  I even embossed too so really rolling the boat out!

The image I used is Autumn by Hannah Lynn, I love colouring her as she suits any colours really not just autumnal.

I hope you can pop over and come and see the other designs by the Team and enter the challenge.
