Forgive me if I am very brief. I am having trouble concentrating on crafting at the moment.
Our challenge this week is Anything Goes with an optional Christmas twist. I did not choose to do the twist this week. Instead I have colored my Make It Crafty Chantelle at the Races image from our sponsor for April. One randomly-selected participant this month will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to Make It Crafty. There is also a special bonus prize this month: if you use a Make It Crafty image for your creation, you will be entered into a second drawing for another $10 GC.
I printed my image on X-Press It BC and colored it with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: YR00, YR14, YR18, E08, E18
Hat Trim/Dress: G40, G43, G46, TTG43
Shoes/Bow/Hat/Feathers: B01, B52
Flowers: YR61, YR65, YR02
My DP comes from the Basic Grey Out of Print collection. It was Zutterized and paired with Stampin' Up CS. I used Stampin' Up ink and a flourish stamp from the SU Tiny Tags collection for the border around my image. I added a bit of lace from my stash and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I finished my card by going overboard adding die cuts using the following dies:
Memory Box Caserta Bloom
Memory Bella Bouquet
Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish
Today was my dad's birthday. He passed at age 61, which was 38 years ago. Hard to believe the time has flown that quickly.
Hope you find time to check out the beautiful creations by my teammates, Carla, Dawn, and Kathi. And please color up an image for your creation and join our Anything Goes challenge. Just be sure to use any brand of alcohol markers in your coloring.
I'll be back with another post in a bit.
