DV 129 Anything Goes

The challenge today at Dream Valley is a lovely easy one of Anything Goes. We are sponsored by both Robyn’s Fetish, and it’s one of their images, Bouquet Bear, that I have used on my card, and also by

129 Anything Goes

I printed the image onto card and then immediately masked it off, and using a zig zag cut out from Craftwork Cards I stencilled through with DInks in Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers. Having coloured in with my copics I matted it onto a slightly larger rectangle, which I had distressed the edges of with the same DI colours, and finally matted that onto a card base I cut myself with Tonic’s Bowscale Dies.

I didn’t like the colour of the boquet when I had finished so I printed the image again and recoloured just the bouquet which I paper pieced over the top of the original.

The sentiment die and scrolly dies were cut from rainbow card in similar colours to the DInks I used, with an extra black layer behind the sentiment to make it stand out a bit better. On reflection I think I should have done the same with the scrolly dies, but sadly I had already stuck them down before I realised.
