That a way!

Hello again,

It's challenge time again!  I love the start of new challenges and oh my are there some very talented crafters out there that I get to swoon over as DT :D

Today I'm here for mid challenge inspiration, and over at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog the theme is Put the Sentiment on a Tag! We have a fabulous sponser too; the amazing Rick St. Dennis

Here is my DT make for inspiration.....

The image is called That A Way for KAREN - isn't he just magnifcent :D

Here's what I used to make this project:
Image: That A Way for KAREN  by Rick St. Dennis
Colouring: I used Graph'it Marker Pens my favourite alcohol markers; the blues are 7140, 7145, 7160 and they team up great with the oranges.  I used 2105, 2120 & 2130
Background to image:  I used the neutral grey Graph'it marker pens to colour the whole backgroud and the I used the blender pen (chisel nib) to make loads of random marks on the backing...I love the way it turned out (close up pic below).
Balloons are from Just for Men paper collection from Michele R Designs
Star die cut: an old one from Joy Crafts but there new ones can be found at Noor Designs UK store
then the Bits and bobs: bakers twine, mini pegs and bulldog clip from my stash and the little bird is from That Craft Place
Backing papers: from my stash

Now for the close ups:

How much fun is this one :D
