Crafting Mari

your own: crafterscafeblogchallenge

Thanks to sponsor Mari's Digis for this image, (there are lots of super images) get it here: maridigisstore-ideia-arteira

Image: Mari Digi
Coloured with Copics
Stencil: homemade
Sentiment stamp: Fundamentals
Also: twine, Nuvo Crystal Drops, WofS, Shimmer spray Sparkle

Crafters like a lot of Me Time.  I have just recently got back into quilting again and am just so enjoying getting lost in it, and this image is just right.

The background is made by using the negative of a diecut as a stencil - sponged with Distress Oxide inks and spritzed, dabbed then sprayed with shimmer mist.  Click on for a closer look.
