About the Artist

I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Rhedd and Rosie's Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Challenge #25 - Anything Goes

Hello everyone the winner has been chosen for Challenge #24 over at Rhedd and Rosie's Challenge Blog so if you haven't already make sure to head over and check it out.

This fortnight our theme is 

Anything Goes

Here is my DT project

We were given a choice of Digi Images from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet to use for this challenge and I went for this gorgeous Floppy Latte..."Dandy Flower".

I started with a 5"x5" kraft card base.   Using my wonderful Inktense pencils which hubby so very kindly bought me for my birthday, I set about colouring and painting the image.  Once finished I covered the flower petals with Glossy Accents just to make them pop off the page.  I used a Viva Decor script stamp and stamped all over the card base using Memento Rich Cocoa.  Then I took a selection of patterned paper from my scraps drawer (I have challenged myself this year to make use of my scraps as the drawer is well and truly overflowing) and matted and layered them in a staggered fashion.  Using one of my new Marianne Creatables dies I cut out some leaf flourishes in the same patterned papers as the first layer on the card.  I used a Clearly Besotted sentiment 'Thinking of You' also stamped in Rich Cocoa on coordinating card, popped it up on pop dots and added a couple of gems to finish.

I hope you like my DT card using this image.

The prize for this challenge is sponsored by Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet and the winner will receive $10 voucher to spend across the 3 designers we are using:

Stitchy Stamps
Delicious Doodles
Floppy Latte
