ABC O for Open

Our challenge at ABC this time is a nice easy one, it’s open, as in Anything Goes! We have two prizes on offer from our Sponsors who are The Paper Shelter and Marker Pop.

I made my card with The Paper Shelter’s Healing The Dragon set of digistamps. There are separate digis of each of the elements and then one final one in a ‘scene’.

I would love to take credit for the fabulous colouring, but TPS generously supplies coloured images with all of it’s digis, and this was their precoloured image. I printed it onto watercolour paper and then inked around the edge to tone it in with their paper pack, Let’s Make a Picnic, which I used for the background layers. I cut them all out with my Go Kreate dies. I added a couple of stamps sentiments and the corner is from Memory Box, Dartington Corner. Flowers from my stash.

Sorry about the quality of the photo but I forgot to check it before I mailed out the card, and it was a bit on the bright side. The image below is a bit of jiggery pokery with my graphics program to highlight the image itself.
