Cathy the Crafter

Good morning.

We have a brand new challenge starting at Crafting from the Heart.

Our theme for challenge 102 is  'Always Anything Goes'

Our sponsor for this challenge is

I have used a gorgeous digi stamp called 'Cathy the Crafter'.

My Shopping List

base white card
backing paper (printed from serif craft artist)
plain white card
pink card
patchwork embosslicous embossing folder
stamps from Dreamees
white detail embossing powder
nuvo glitter crystal drops

I have die cut my backing paper using creative expressions double pierced rectangles set a.

I cut my oval and frame using my BSC.

My flowers were stamped onto vellum and embossed using detailed white embossing powder then coloured in on the rear with copic marker pen.

My image was printed out using serif craft artist, fussy cut on the direct to cut facility on my BSC with a 1mm border and then cut a mat in black adding a 2mm border.

I coloured my sweet little image using copic marker pens as follows: -
skin = E000 | E00 | E01
hair = E31 | E33 | E35 | Y21
jeans = B05 | B06 | B26
top = R82 | RV09

Although, unfortunately, in the photograph it is not clear but I have used my glitter crystal drops on all the white dots on the backing paper and also in the centres of the flowers.
