Seeing it through :)


**Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page¬†ūüė¶¬†¬†**

At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†this week the challenge is I Can See Clearly Now.We have the fabulous¬†Just Some Lines¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

So bought myself some new kraft card to play with and I’m quite pleased with it.I wanted to practise colouring with my Polychromos some more and this delightful little fella,Back 2 School Bird by Just Some Lines¬†was just the ticket.They worked a treat but I think I still need¬†more practice…sounds like good excuse to get in some extra crafting!For the transparent parts I went for an acetate card base,epoxy button stickers and,altho’ it¬†doesn’t show up,3D Crystal Lacquer.The problem was trying not to get a refection of me taking the pic in the acetate!Anyway I kind of went for a School/Birthday/Office Supplies hybrid -and it looks like I achieved it ūüėÄ
