I can't believe that we are already in February!!!
All of the design team loved seeing your entries to our last challenge.
What an uber talented bunch you are!
Keep checking back to see if you are one of our winners.....

This month, unfortunately, our sponsor has closed down. 
So one of the design team..... Sammy.......
Has offered to create our winners prize for this month.
It will be some crafty goodies..... Thank you Sammy x

This month our theme is 'Your Favourite Technique'
We want to see your crafty project using whatever your favourite technique is.

Pop back over the month to see the fantastic talents of our design team as they work with the squigglefly images.... I am always excited to see what they get up to.

Make sure you read the challenge rules over in the side bar.

Happy crafting
Nikki and the Crafting Cafe Design Team x


My current favourite technique

To be completely honest, I'm glad I'm not working with my allocated Squigglefly image as it was an 'animal totem pole'. Um... right. It's a shame they are no longer open though :(

So - back to the topic at hand, my favourite technique. It's difficult to pin such a thing down as a mixed media artist, but here's my current one: Chameleon Pens. I've seen loads of comments for and against these newcomers to the alcohol pens, but I have to say I'm smitten. I think they save so much time, and once you've gone through a couple of the online tutorial videos, they are quick to work with. Here's my card for this month, featuring the Cling Vase Bouquet from Stampendous.


Pens used:
PK3 Bubble Gum for the roses
PR4 Purple Grape for rose shading and on tabletop
YG3 Spring Meadow for the leaves and stems
BL3 Sky Blue for the background
Blending Pen
Image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.

My favourite technique(s), by Amanda

Hi everyone, February is nearly over, but there's still time to join in with our challenge.  I don't really have a single favourite technique (my fave is generally whatever I'm doing right now!), so I've created a project that features several of my favourites.  I've always loved to lose myself in the detail of colouring in, especially with watercolour pencils, I really enjoy single colour projects, and I have a long-standing addiction to easel cards.  Here's my card, I hope you like it.  For details of what I used, please visit my blog, here
