Crafters Companion May Challenge

Okay, so I know we're nearer the end of May than the beginning but you can still enter the Crafters Companion monthly challenge for the chance to win £30 to spend in the CC online store!!!! (I'd need to win LOTS of time to buy all the stuff I need).

The theme for this month is masculine cards so I picked out a lovely Mulberry wood character called 'Relax' and coloured him with my trustee Spectrum Noir pens (colours used at the end of this little post).  The backing papers I used are from the Mulberry Wood everyday CD and are: coordinates 1, design 6 colour 5 and coordinates 2, design 6 colour 1.  I also used the centre of the Enchanted Spring diesire die and scalloped tags die, little bit of bakers twine and pearl dots and you're done!


Okay, so now to spectrum noir colours used (grab a coffee, you may be some time!):

Bear: TN3, TN5, EB3 and IG6 for nose
Deckchair body: GB2, GB8, GB10
Stripes: TB1, TB3
Wellies: LG4, LG5 & DG3
Fork: TN5, TN7, BG1 & BG3
Dog: EB1, EB2, EB3, EB5
Grass: LG1, LG4 & LG5
Butterfly: TB1 & TB5
Newspaper: IG1 & IG3
Outline: IG1
Blender used variously throughout

Told you it may take a while!  Anyway, must be off to get ready for work 

TTFN
