We are running an Anything Goes just so you know we're now weekly and remember to come visit us!
For this challenge I tore my hair out, seriously ha! I started my design as pink and yellow as there are a few spring colour themes around this week and made a lovely base then coloured in my image which is Forever Rose digital by Hannah Lynn and you know what I'm like for my dark bolds, she kinda changed from a pale pink and yellow to violet and gold lol! So time ticking on and I am so busy this week I had no time to recolour and stick to the pink and yellow so I decided it would be easier making another base for her so I pulled some papers together and then decided to make a twisted easel which I haven't made before! Why do I do it to myself!! I can make easels no problem but the twisted ones the flowers sit a different way etc and it takes a little adjustment to get used to them. The clock was screaming at me by now and I know I'd said I'd do Lexi's Challenge which is ribbon with no bows or knots. Sounded interesting but its a thinking challenge and prob not one when I've spent 3 hours making a card and I'm short of time but hey I'm ME so I met that challenge lol! I secured a length of gold sparkly ribbon, you know the type that doesn't stick, under neath the flowers only it wouldnt stick so I then had to hunt my silicone glue out **again**
I seem to be on a perpetual hunt for my silicone glue. I ALWAYS find it in the back of my box of glue dots as thats a logical place to keep it yes? Only my memory is that chronic I forget I've put it in this logical place! DOH!
Now because I have some pretty chunky flowers there I decided I didn't want more flowers on
the top of the card so opted for some die cut lettering. So I used one of the Tim Holtz alterations alphabets, you know the ones that the cutting boards turn into bananas - actually I saw that happen on C&C and had a good chuckle as they tried to hide it lol! I secured the lettering which is a mother of pearl colour with my now found silicone glue and added a 6m iridescent gem to dot the i!
So here's my humble offering for Crafts and Me anything goes challenge! Please do come and play and make me feel better haha!
BTW The text around the image I did myself in PSP x
