Inspired By A Tattoo With A Little Pen Work

Another fortnight has flown by and it's time for another Craft-Room Challenge, it's the turn of Zoe to choose the theme and she has chosen Inspired By A Tattoo With A Little Pen Work Of Your Own.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Tando Creative,

I must admit that when I saw the theme I hadn't the foggiest idea of what to do until I started to think about my uncle Bill, I was about 10 when he died, I can't remember too much about him apart from his tattoos - I was always facinated by them, he had been in the navy and most of his tattoos were of a nautical theme, so for my DT piece I've gone nautical.

I found this digi image of an anchor, I thought it looked like a tattoo. I added some pen lines to make a sea and coloured it with coloured pencils.

This is the card that I made with the image.

The background is paper from my stash, I matted the image onto some black card. I embellished the card with string, metal charm, ticket and a Tando compass.

Why not pop over to the Craft-Room to see the inspirational pieces that my teamies have made.


  1. A fabulous card Hazel and a great interpretation of the theme, I wouldn't know where to start xx
