Crafters Companion 11th Birthday











Well good afternoon everyone and its party time for Crafters Companion UK....HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY WEEK!!











So!!...what better way to celebrate than a blog hop...with a twist!!!

I'm sure many of you by now will have seen the Crafters Companion Party Page, the perfect place to keep up to speed with everything that's going on to celebrate, if not you'll find it here.

There are so many new products being launched this week it's so exciting!! There have been lots of sneak peeks over the last few days and if you would like to see what's in store here is a link to the BROCHURE, you'll also find all the Hochanda show times so you don't miss a thing.

So here's a little info about the Blog Hop...it will officially start today 20/10/2016 at 12pm and will finish 30/10/2016 at 9pm.

The prize!! Well there are few taking part in the Hop so lots of opportunities to win. Here is what I have to offer....










The winner will receive this box frame, I've used a colorista page and some of Sara's signature dies and had the absolute pleasure of using the brand new Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens!!! Arrghh they are AMAZING!! Look at the beautiful colours!









As you can probably tell I kinda like them...the brush nib is superb and the the fine point nib was perfect for colouring the small detail on the artwork and just like all Spectrum Noir pens they blend beautifully. I can't wait for you to see them in action live on Hochanda!!

Here are a few pics of the project as I was making it :0)


















I added a sneaky bit of glitter to the wording using the crystal clear sparkle pen :0)

I die cut all of my flowers using Neenah card stock and gave them a light base coat with Aqua tints ready to add more detail with the Illustrator pens benefiting from the use of both the brush nib and fine point.



























The last task was to assemble the frame so I mat and layered the coloured artwork and then added the floral embellishments using some 3D glue gel.


















Here's what you need to know...Over on the Facebook events page there will be a game of musical blog hop and when the music stops you need to head in over to the relevant blog and leave a comment it's that easy! You will have a window to leave your comment before the music will start again. Crafter's Companion UK will announce the winner via Facebook and twitter and if you're the lucky winner you need to send your details to socialmedia@crafterscompanion.uk so we can get the prize sent out to you, which will be within 2 weeks :0)

You're more than welcome to leave a comment at anytime you would like but you will only have a chance of winning if the comment within that time window.

So if you want to win this









As soon as you see the announcement that the music has stopped on somebody's blog....GO!...& COMMENT TO WIN!! Good luck to you all!!

Hugs for now
