Bird Houses


Time for another challenge at Crafty Little Fairies and it is one of my favourite things to use for diecutting, kraft. I just love kraft card and hope you do too. I wanted to use lots of different textures with this card.Play along for the chance to win 4 digis from

Image - Dreamees
Medium - Copics
Papers - First Edition Dreamcatcher
Dies - Joy
Other - spider's web stuff, crispy lace ribbon from Dreamees, leather strip, DI Vintage Photo, Viva decor pearl pen

As I was colouring the image one of my Copics ran out. I started with the Ciaos but as they run out I am replacing them with sketch markers. I couldn't afford to buy all sketch markers to start with but I do prefer them and they last longer. I ordered three pens from Cult Pens one afternoon and they arrived the next morning, what fantastic service.

I definitely couldn't live without Kraft card and it looks fab teamed with purple. This bird house stamp is cute and looks like it was made to go with the die cut one!
I also prefer the sketch markers...not least because the Ciao pens roll around all over my desk!
Big hugs, Kat xx
