Anything Goes DT - Mail It!

Good morning blogger friends....

Hope that you've had a lovely weekend and this weekend's a bank holiday so more time for crafting!

My Mum and Dad went home on Sunday after a 10 day stay. It was lovely to see them both looking so well and I'm missing my Ironing Fairy already (thanks Mum x). Sadly with some much snow and bad weather they didn't get to visit many places. Hopefully next time will be better.

I'm back with you this morning because we have a new challenge over at Anything Goes. This fortnight the challenge is 'Mail It!'. So we want to see letters, postcards, stamps or anything to do with mail.

My card uses a lovely image by Krista of Saturated Canary and she's called Pack Light.

I've made another shaped card using a Go Kreate die. The papers are by Prima. I bought 3 Prima pads at Harrogate from The Hobby House, and they're gorgeous. These are from the Nature Garden collection. The edges have been distressed with Walnut stain and stitched.

Pack Light has been coloured with Copics:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R21
Hair: E50, E51, E97, E99, E59
Top: YR000, YR00, YR02
Skirt: G20, G21, G94, YG99
'Uggs': E41, E42, E43, E44
Top case: E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37
Bottom case: YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97
Camera: C1, C3, C5, C7

The Postcard stamp is Grunge Postcard by Lili of the Valley and the Pisa stamp is an old Hero Arts stamp from the International Tour De Luxe stamp box. I stamped the image and then sewed round it with no thread in the machine to get the perforations for the stamp. The flowers are rolled roses and the leaves are cut from Joy Craft Dies.
I'm loving my new Joy Craft dies, they just cut so well and first time!


Dies used:

Go Kreate Frilly #7 large
Joy Crafts : Floral Flourishes Branch with Leaves & Leaves
Marianne Creatables: English Rose & Leaves

Why not pop on over to the Anything Goes Challenge blog and have a look at some more inspiration from my lovely teamies.

Remember that you can get your Copic Ciao markers and lots of lovely goodies from Lynne at The Craft Den.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles said...

Oh my gosh, where to start? Your card shape is so unique. I do wonder how you'd ever find an envelope to fit it in though. The colouring on the image is superb and those rolled roses are just gorgeous. Thanks so much for joining us in our current challenge over at Digi Darla's. I hope that you had fun and will continue to enter into our future challenges.
