Monday Inspiration and a Giveaway

Good morning! I am thrilled that I get to share this week's Crafter's Companion Monday inspiration with you. The theme this month is friendship so I decided to use a super cute stamp called Wine of Friendship from S.W.A.L.K.
I used the CleverCut 3-in-1 Mini Paper Trimmer to cut my card stock. I stamped my image with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. This is the best ink I have found for alcohol markers. It does not smear or run when coloring.

After coloring my image I wanted to give it some extra details so I used 3-D Crystal Lacquer on the wine glasses to give them the appearance of real glass. I love the look that the 3-D Crystal Lacquer gives. I then used a silver gel pen to color the necklace. Just a few extra details can really bring your project to life.
I hope I have inspired you to add a few extra details to your project or to make a card for your dear friend, just because. 

This week we are giving away Sheena's A Little Bit Festive - Fairy Power so be sure to head over to  the Crafter's Companion Challenge blog for all the details.


I am playing in the following challneges:
Kaboodle Doodles: friendshhip
Oldie but Goodie: Friends (old = pearls)
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
Diva's by Design: For a Female
Paper Crafting Journey: anything goes

That is all for me today. I hope you have a beautiful week!

Until next time..............

Tonya
