Anything Goes - Checks, Stripes and Flowers

Hello blogging friends...

This morning I'm here to tell you about the new challenge over at Anything Goes.
This fortnight our challenge theme is...

Checks, Stripes and Flowers

My card today uses a lovely Hannah Lynn image called Wynndy. These are lovely images to colour. Next time I think I'll have to try coloured hair. I've seen a number of people in blogland colouring them with pinks and purples, and they look great.

The papers I've used are from the Maja Road Vintage Spring Basics pad again. I did try to find other papers but these were the only ones I have that had checks and stripes that complimented each other.

Copics used :-

Skin : E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair : E21, E23, E25, E29
Blues : BG0000, B91, B93, B95, B97
Sun : Y23, Y35, Y38
Leaves : G20, G21, G94, G99
Reds : R32, R35, R46, R59

I've used a little bit of frantage on the papers as well as distressing them with Walnut stain and a TH tool. Think I can probably be a bit more liberal with it next time. Wasn't quite sure how much to use. I also covered my corner with it too.

 I've also added a bit of Gesso to some of the embellishments. Really enjoyed doing this, so I think it will be making an appearance on a few more cards.

Hope you can join us for this challenge. We love to come and visit your blogs and see all your lovely creations.

The Craft Den website is currently undergoing some renovation, so if you need anything just give Lynn a call on 01142 340 732.
