1st CDAC Blog Hop!

This weekend sees the very first blog hop at CDAC. We are giving you a trip around the blogs of the participating artists to give you the opportunity to see all the different styles on offer. The final paragraph of this post tells you all you need to know to be in with a chance of winning one (or maybe more!) of the prizes on offer. As well as the grand prize, each of the artists is giving a prize from their own store. 

At Crafty Ann's we have digi Stamps, digital backing papers and pre-coloured images on offer and the winner of the prize from my blog will win:
  • 1 digi image
  • 1 backing paper collection (there are 6 sheets in each collection)
  • and 1 Pre-coloured sheet of their choice.
For my card above I have used the Bridge over Stream digi, embossed dots bp and a sheet from the brand new Blue and Black collection (which is so new it isn't in the shop yet but will be very soon.) I coloured the image using brilliance ink, memento ink and chalk ink in 6 different colours using duster brushes. I've often used cut 'n' dry foam to colour scenic images that I've rubber stamped with stazon but wasn't sure how inkjet printer ink would react. The duster brushes don't lay the ink down as heavily and haven't affected the printer ink at all so I'm delighted to have found a way to do this.

 At Crafty Ann's, the range of digis tends to quite eclectic and often reflects what I have a fancy for drawing at the time, so I'd also like to share one of my favourite cards with you. This one uses two of the Venetian Masks. If you'd like to know the details of how I did this one and what I used, please click here for the original post.
