Charleston Flapper

Good morning all and a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.

2016 is a special year for me and my hubby.  He is 65 years old this year, March to be exact and we have been married 25 years in October so lots to celebrate.

I hope you had some good celebrations last night for the New Year.  Any new year resolutions made?

I gave up making those as I was always breaking them by the 2nd January -tee hee.

To start 2016 off with a bang challenge 11 has begun at Creative Ladybirds Creations.

Theme is ' Anything Goes'

Our sponsor is

The image I have used from our sponsor SLS Lines is called 'Charleston Flapper'.

I printed our Ms Charleston and fussy cut her using my BSC with a 1mm border.  I then increased the border to 2mm and cut out a black mat.  This was all done in the 'direct to cut'.

I coloured her in using a mixture of Copic Sketch marker pens and for her dress and shoes Sakura sparkle pens.

The flowers I made using a stamp from Chloes Creative Cards and cosmic shimmer embossing powder Blue Speckle.  The leaves are a Sue Wilson die.

For the matting and layering I have cut a blue piece of card as normal followed by white card using Noble Dies - Double Pierced Rectangles Set B followed by a lattice cut using my BSC.  My blue frame is a spellbinders die.

To see more designs from our design team and to enter your own project into the challenge just follow the link HERE to the blog.
