Love this card, such a cute image and the colouring really brings it to life. Didn't realise artex could go off but I do know how difficult it is to remove so they probably thought this was an easier answer. Hope they don't make too much mess and you can still create. Good luck with the craft fair too. Hugs, Amanda x
