Funky Hand and Tiddly Inks Blog Hop!

I hope you are sitting comfortably!!  And welcome to my little part of the very first Funky Hand and Tiddly Inks blog hop!!!  This is where the creative talents of Anice and Christy come together along with both Design Teams and we can show you just how well the papers and digi images complement each other!

We were all lucky enough to work with a Tiddly Inks image (although I have a fair few to be going on with!) and of course some of the fab Funky Hand paper!  For my sample I went a bit plain and simple on the outside because I just love the image and I didn't want her being overshadowed by pretty papers!

So I've used Minnie's Lights and printed her directly onto the card blank then coloured her with Promarkers and added stickles to the lights (making them sparkly!) and glossy accents to her glasses.  The sentiment stamp (slightly wonky despite it being clear acrylic!) is a Studio G 99p set which I do use quite a lot!

So if you're wondering where the Funky Hand papers are - look no further!  I've done a first for me and decorated the inside of the card!!!  The photo shows it on it's side - the plain panel is the bit you'd write on.  Papers are from the Christmas Tree download which is part of the Oh Come All Ye Crafters collection.  I've printed them as A5 - so two to a sheet of paper so that the pattern was not too large.

Apologies if the photo overhangs the side bar - it was a bit titchy as 'large'!

So, back to the blog hop!!  You'll need to start at Anice so that you don't miss anyone on the hop - miss one of us and you'll miss out on being in to win one of two fab prizes!  But if you've landed on my blog from Leah then you're on the right track - hope you left her a comment?!  Don't forget to leave me a comment before you hop over to Lou Mac who you'll need to leave a comment for too!

Right, I think that's it!!  You'll need to be quick with the hop - you have until 12am CST on December 3 to get your comments on our posts!!!

  2. I have to admit I was surprised by the first image as you are known to like your papers but this image is just so wonderful I can understand keeping it nice and clean..Ah ha..I knew you wouldn't let me down with the papers, the inside of the card is just a wonderful contrast to the CAS outside. Fab work as always.
