I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #106

This is my DT project for this week's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which is a theme of:-

MANGA

We want to see Manga style images on your projects - of course Secret Crafter images are perfect and we have two new ones available as digis HERE.

CHRISTMAS ANGEL
CHRISTMAS SLEDGING

Check out the challenge blog to see the other girlies creations.

I decided to experiment a little and bought a clock kit from e-bay which had a circle of MDF and a clock mechanism. I decided to decorate it to match in with my new craft room and used Secret Crafter Digi's of "Angel boy" and "Bird fairy" with one of each being flipped to face the opposite way. (One major advantage of digi's is can re-size, flip and rotate them)

Really pleased with the result and it now hangs proudly in my new craft room :)

Images:
Angel boy & Bird fairy exclusive to Secret Crafter
Papers:
SEI Glitter paper "Juliette"
Medium:
Promarkers and glitter pen
Tools:
