The ABC Challenge this week is:

W is for Windows

And because I treated myself to the bargain of all bargains (oh yes!) last week as Dustin Pike had a mega sale I am feeling the need to use his images a lot. Maybe not so far this week, but there will be more - I promise!

And because I found the fab £1.25 (half price) brush felt tips in Tesco last week and I am liking the effect they have (and also rediscovering decent felt tips and shading) I needed to use them!

So, I resized this image from Dustin Pike, printed it onto decent card stock and then coloured it in with felt tips, a little bit of watercolour pencils over the top and then a smattering of white gel pen over the top for extra highlights. I also used the pen for doodling a border around the edges of the card and for writing the sentiment.

The black card is from my stash.

And that's it! The claws actually hang over the edges of the card a little. Only because I cut the card too small. Me and measuring are not always on the same number......
