August Challenge at Crafty Calendar

 Good morning, it's time for our August Challenge over at Crafty Calendar,
 this month the theme is 'Anything Goes'
 and we're sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls.

The image I have used is Captain Owen,  I've coloured with Copic markers.  Papers from the Works and I've added some die cut fish and a stamped sentiment.

There are some fabulous inspiration cards from the rest of the DT over on the Challenge Blog so please hop over for a visit, it would be great to have you play along .

Thanks for visiting

Hiya Chris, My goodness you are really knocking them out of the park right now! What a wonderful couple of cards (I caught up on your previous post as well!), your colouring is amazing and those shapes you are creating - just WOW!!

We had a lull in the weather this week, but are being told it will be heating up again next! Can't believe it hit 40 degrees in Coningsby, just down the road from us, we never get that hot here! Also envy you your dress-making skills, the limit for me is sewing on a button!!
