Krafty hAnglar sailing by..................

Good evening my lovelies its late & I've got the hospital tomorrow so I'm just gonna get on tonight & not babble........
Tonight I have followed a sketch & a challenge over at Cute Card Thursday to use Kraft, now its not just use Kraft but put an image onto kraft & colour it with your usual mediums. Lucky for me my big bulk supply of kraft came today so I was able to take part, now I've only done this onec before so I'm still learning.
I've used hanglar boy from my sailor kit, this really is my favourite set from all the hanglars.

The fabric sentiment I found in my stash.....which I had more of these they are fab!!! The boat wheel charm is also from my stash.

I've of course decorated inside to compliment the front but not made it as 3d so its suitable to write on. All the paper is Websters Pages 'Spring/Yacht/Country' & I got it from Crafty Emma's Store as well as the Dew Drops & the Bakers Twine. The lined paper with Notes written on is also from the same websters pages.

hanglar has had his skin coloured with Copics, I cheated lol & the rest of him has been coloured with Prisma's. I have layered hanglar up so he is 3d altho you cant really see the effect here it looks fab IRL.

Well thats it from me I'm gonna try do some blog-hopping before I go in the shower then off to bed. I have to see a professor tomorrow apparently.....I ain't bothered what he is along as he helps me to get rid of these pains....wish me luck peeps.
If I dont get to you all I will catch up once I get back I promise.
Thanks sooooo much for all your lovely comments & thank you for stopping by that means so much.
Tatty bye xoxoxoxo
Challenges I'm Entering..............

This card is so adorable. I love the papers and of course they had to be Webster's. I am always amazed at your gorgeous embellies. I don't know where you find them all.
