Crazy Crafters April Blog Hop with Guest Brian King


Welcome Back to our second blog hop this month, today we have the very talented Brian King as  our guest. I'm sure you will find some wonderful inspirations by visiting 
Brian's Blog. You are at Angela Westland's Blog at the moment, if you find yourself a bit lost please refer to the list of Crazy Crafters at the bottom of this post, just click on the name and you will be taken through the Blog Hop!!

Our theme this month with Brian King is "Case The Designer" so our challenge was to select one of Brian's projects and use it as our inspiration to make our own card or project. I selected Brian's Easel Card which he used the stamp set "Lovely As A Tree". I have made a 4 Sided Twisted Easel Card and have used a image from the "Lovely As A Tree" Stamp Set. I also sponged each square panel masking it so I could get 3 colors as my background before I stamped the tree in Rich Razzleberry. Take the time to visit my 
UTUBE CHANNEL for some great tutorials, I would love you to help my channel grow by subscribing while you are checking out the tutorials.
