Words over at That Craft Place Challenge

Hello there,

Well it has been said that I'm never short of words!  so this fortnight's challenge over at That Craft Place Challenge should be a doddle! lol  So with the theme of Words, I decided to team it up with a brand new release digi stamp, a new edition to the Bubbles range at That Craft Place Etsy store

I have used:
Papermainia Paper for the backing and black card stock, twine to make this 7x7 card and I have made sure that all of the over-hangs (top tip again lol) don't excede 8x8 so it fits in a standard 8x8 envelope :D
Pop over to That Craft Place Facebook Page to see all the goodies they have for your crafty stash or visit their bricks and mortar shop.
Before printing, I added a background in Craft Artist 2, I made this one using stencils within the program from Daisy Trail

I have coloured him with Spectrum Noir markers:
Skin: FS2, 4, 9, TN3, CR3
Hair: EB2, 5, 7
Clothes: IG1, 2. CR1, 2, 3

And finally added the wording, cut using the 1" Contemporary Alphabet die's (upper and lower case) by Crafters Companion, and don't forget that That Craft Place also stock Crafter's Companion products :D  superb! xxx

Here's a couple more pics:

Not happy with his face!  blending went a bit (more than a bit) wrong!
But in the spirit of a warts and all blog, I wanted to show you all :D
We learn every time we create xxx

Thank you so much for stopping by and we hope to see you this fortnight in the That Craft Place Challenge
