Treasure Hunt Blog Hop! :)

Thank you all for joining us on our first birthday and treasure hunt!!! This has been a wonderful year and I am so grateful to each of my team members and the special guests that are helping me celebrate....and I am SUPER glad YOU are here today.

If you came from Tiffany's blog then you are in the correct place and at the final stop of the hop.
If you didn't start at the beginning, hop on back HERE and start so you can figure out the secret code and get entered for the prizes.


The blog hop will run April 30 - May 3 so you  have a few days to make it through.

Our random winners for the prizes shown HERE (there are 5 prizes so 5 winners) will be selected from those who EMAIL ME with the secret code spelled out by Jane.  Not sure who Jane is? Go back HERE to see what I mean.

I used Pirate Jane in my project today:
(notice the mini Jane in the corner??---that means my letter is "P").

I had so much fun creating this canvas with Pirate Jane. All the illustrated pieces were colored with copics, then I decopauged a canvas using a piece of blue paper, Love Map, and Pirate Fun. After that, I grunged up everything with acrylic paints and then touched up with copics on top...It took about 3 hours to color and paint the whole 5x7 canvas. :)
But it didn't feel quite done, so I went back in photoshop and added a few more digital pieces....so the final project is a combination of photoshop painting and real acrylics:
Not a whole lot different but enough...I think I might go back with some white acrylics and paint up the original. :)

My freebie is the pirate banner below (click the picture to SAVE IT), but there was another freebie somewhere in the blog hop. :)
I wanted to say a special thank you to my team members who donated a prize and to Zoe from Make It Crafty. I have to say she has some of the most wonderful backgrounds to go with Tiddly Inks images...please go check them out and her weekly challenge HERE too. I happen to be sponsoring them this week and I bet you will see some awesome black, white and red inspiration from her amazing DT. :)

Tomorrow, Tiddly Inks will be having a sale to celebrate our first birthday and the fun new images. If you are interested, come on back tomorrow and shop for a bit so that you can join us on May 10 for our next blog hop and challenge.

On May 10, we will hold another blog hop that will be open to everyone who cares to link up and it will be hosted on my blog. :) It will be part of our fun birthday party celebration and the special prize for the that blog hop will be a chance to win a digital stamp customized and designed for you.
More details will follow next week.

There will also be a live chat with me and some of the team members on May 10 at 7 PM CST...Go to our PCP forum and click on the chat button at the bottom...We will have a live chat with everyone who joins in...

Be sure to email your secret code to ccart87@gmail.com to get entered to win our prizes...
You can review the prizes HERE.

Thanks again for hopping along with us...see you next week! :)
