Art By Barb

I recently discovered another progressive challenge on Facebook from a company I had not heard of.  Art by Barb  have some lovely images and a great challenge on their page. Being a progressive challenge you are guaranteed another image each time you enter as long as you do not miss a month. If you do miss you can always hop back in again by purchasing the challenge image from the store. The very first time you enter you can request the image for free. All the details are on the Art By Barb Facebook Page.


Materials used:
Art By Barb Designs – A Birdie Note
blue, black card
X-Press It card
Copic pens
A5 white card blank

The image and sentiment are printed on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics. They are then trimmed and matted on black card.

The front of the card is covered with a slightly smaller piece of blue card and the image and sentiment attached.

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
