Anything Goes Challenge - In the Garden

Good morning blogging friends...

It's a beautiful sunny morning here, hope the sun is shining where you are.

Today sees a new challenge over at Anything Goes and this fortnight it's...

In the Garden 

and we'd like to see some lovely butterflies too.

It's our 100th Challenge today so we would love it if you could join us. We reall enjoy visiting your blogs and see all your gorgeous creations!

My image is Sarah Kay's Bernadette Admiring her Spring Flowers.

I've teamed her with Prima papers from the Zephyr pad. She's been coloured to match the paper, but I'm not sure that I like the end result. It's a little too bold for me.

Copic colours used:

Skin: E000, E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Top: YR00, YR02, YR04, YR07
Jeans: BG000, BG10, BG11, BG13
Watering Can: C00, C0, C1, C3, C5
Hair: YR20, Y21, YR23, E33, E35
Flowers and Follage: Y38, R81, R83, R85

For the embellishments I've added ribbon, a watering can charm, brad, pearl flourish and a selection of flowers.

The orange doily has been cut using Cheery Lynn's Kiwi Doily DL108. I must have run this through my cuttlebug about 20 times and it's the first time it's cut all the detail out properly! Perhaps I've been using too thick a guage of card before...or maybe it just needs 20 runs through the machine! grrr.

The edges have all be inked with Walnut stain and distressed.

Thank you so much for dropping by . I would love it if you left a comment so that I can pop on over to your blog and repay the compliment.

Off to lay the laminate in my Craft room today. We're getting there slowly.

Happy Crafting,

Big Hugs, 
Janine xx
