S J Crafts May Challenge


Today saw the start of the May challenge at S J Crafts. This month Sarah has drawn up a bingo board for us to play with, you need to select 3 boxes from the grid in a line (horizontal/vertical or diagonal) and include the items or technique in those 3 boxes on your project

For my card I decide to use the top row Ink/Mist - Border Punch - Circle(s). I started with a circular card blank which I covered with Kraft card, I cut a circle of pale blue card and stamped onto this with my Visible Image Retro Dots stamp using Weathered Wood Distress Ink and a White Versamark ink pad. I cut two strips of card with a Fiskers Threading Water border punch. The cute fish image is from Meljen's Designs as is the background stamp, both have been coloured with promarkers. I added Glossy Accents to the bubbles in the water and some stickles to the swirls in the image.


Don't forget to pop over to the shop blog and check out the fantastic layouts my teamies have come up with.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Visible Image - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Challenge - Anything But Square
Crafting Musketeers - Anything But Square
Southern Girls Challenge - Dots & Spots
