Anything Goes Challenge - Shaped Cards (No Squares)

Good morning everyone. 
Hope you had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend (UK). Well the sun was shining for most of the weekend and it certainly feels like summer is on the way.

I'm back today with a DT card for the Anything Goes Challenge and this fortnight our challenge is

Shaped Cards (no squares ).

I'm really enjoying making these shaped cards at the moment. I'd quite like to get some of the bigger Go Kreate dies that make cards bigger than 6x6. I think I may need to get an A4 die cutting machine though. If you've got any advice on which ones are good I'd love to hear your comments.

Today's card uses the gorgeous Hannah Lynn 'Melissa' image.
I've made this for my niece who's mad about Huskies. This was the closest I could get.

The card shape has been cut using Go Kreate Frilly #7 large and the papers are Prima 'Rondelle'. All the papers have been edged with Walnut stain.

As usual the image has been coloured with Copics.

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, R21
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E29
Cape: R20, R21, R22, R35, W3
Wolf: W0, W1, W3, W5
Sky: BG0000, BG000, Blender

I've also used the following dies to embellish my card.
Marianne - Garden Branch
Memory Box - Small Pinwheel Posie
DooHickey - So lovely wrapped heart

If your after some more goodies for your craft stash, remember to pop on over to Craft Den and have a look at the lovely things Lynne has in stock.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

Cutie Pie Challenge - Lots of Layers

Absolutely gorgeous shape Janine! I wish I had a machine large enough to cut those bigger dies. I'd do shaped cards more often. :-) The image is done so beautifully as well as your arrangement of embellies. I'm sure your niece will love this. Hugs!

Janine, this is beautiful and your coloring is outstanding! I love all the delightful detail, especially the layering. It is nice to see a design that has a lot going on, and yet manages to remain cohesive. Very nicely done! Thanks for stopping by our house at 613 Avenue Create. We look forward to your next visit!

Annette said...

Hi, hun! Ohhh I just LOVE this one! Gosh you are talented with those Copics! :)
I'm a big fan of Go Kreate dies but I haven't got one yet, lol but they are definetly on my wish list :)
I have the Grand Calibur and I'm pretty satisfied with it. Don't have so many to compare with in the bigger size ;) But less good is that the plates are not transparent so you can't see the die you have put under it :( Hope that helps a bit.
Take care!
Hugs Annette
