My Crafty Bloggers Network DT Card

Hi crafty bloggers and followers. Well this week sees the start of a new challenge over at the Crafty Bloggers Network and this is my contribution. This months challenge is All Ablout Men and the sponsors are Just Some Lines. This card is an 8x8 but I have cut a piece of white card at 7x7 and the silver mirri card to mount it on just slightly bigger so the card has a white boarder. i have distressed the card useing Tim Holtz distress inks in Salty Ocean, faded jeans and a purple which I cant remember the name of. How shocking is that. i have used a shaving brush first as you get a more misty effect. The fish are then very roughly painted which different shades of reds and oranges. The sentiment was typed on the conputer then cut out distressed and then mounted on mirri as well. this was glued accross the centre of the card . Die cut flourishes added on the bottom corner and finished of with clear dew drops over the flourish and in the top right. I then went around the edge of the card with inka gold in silver  before mounting. I love any trpe of guilding wax at the moment. Its my favourite thing How about you. If you would like to joing the challenge then why not pop over to
Before I go I would just like to mention that I said in my last post that I would share with you what I made at my Hels Sheridan workshop. Well I will but I have a dilemma. I took photos on both my camera and on my newly aquired mini i pad. The i pad ones are much superior and really show up the dimentions on the projects but I cant work out how to get them on. I dont know yet how to access my blog on the i pad unless someone has put a link on. Any hints would be most appreciated.x

Happy Crafting
