My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Pudding Chester - Pollycraft Challenge - Distressed

Pollycrafts’ challenge this week was to create a card that was distressed. I choose this cute digi image from Pollycraft of Chester eating Christmas pudding.

To create the distressed look I rolled and inked the torn edges, added some Radiant Pearls, glitter and some twine. I had fun colouring this cute image with my Copic markers. I cannot believe that I am now thinking about my Christmas cards.

Be creative. Find something inspiring.
