Month: August 2014

Crafter’s Companion August Challenge

Morning me lovelies. 
It is new challenge time at Crafter’s Companion and the theme this month is School…this can be anything school related and you could win £30 voucher to spend on lots of goodies ! Just remember you need to use at least one Crafter’s Companion product. 
Now not having kids i will admin this theme really did test me…especially when seeing what the other dt girls have created ! 
When i think of school i always think of blackboard…mainly because I was one of those strange children who liked writing and cleaning the board…I was (and some would probably say I still am) a strange child. 
So i decided to create a blackboard style card.
The papers were the May download of the month from Crafter’s Companion and are really fab paper’s. 
I created the card blank using Crafter’s Companion Kraft Card …this really is the best Kraft card I have tried….and i have tried ALOT, it is nice and heavyweight so it is perfect for card blanks. 
The blue card is from Core’dinations Brights pad  and the black card which I used for the blackboard is Crafter’s Companion Matt Black Card
I used my Zig white pen to doodle on the black card, and the chalk is a toothpick cut down and coloured white. 
I was quite pleased with how it turned out and I hope you all like it 🙂
