613 Avenue Create Challenge # 160 Anything Goes

Hi Crafters,

**If you're looking for my Christmas Card Club card then please scroll down**

How are you all on this Sunday morning?
Well I hope and enjoying your weekend.

We have a totally 'Anything Goes' challenge this week at 613 Avenue Create with no twist so you can create whatever you wish for this challenge. Let's see what you can all come up with.

I have used this beautiful image from one of our sponsors, Stitchy Bear, called 'Darling Daisies'.

Image - Darling Daisies - Stitchy Bear
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Creative Expressions Die - Californian Collection, Corner and Border
Silver Mirri Card
Spotty Organza Ribbon 

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Fab n Funky - #288 Buttons or Bows or Both
Craft-Dee Bowz - January challenge
The Ribbon Girl - January Any Image Challenge

I have created quite a simple looking card for today although I think these types of cards take me just as long as a more elaborate card, lol. The colouring on this image was quite time consuming to go in and add the shading around all the tiny petals but it was very therapeutic. What looks like black card in the photo is actually silver mirri card - there goes my award for photographer of the year !

I wish you all a happy and relaxing Sunday, I will leave you with the details of our sponsors below so pop along and join in the fun here.

Our sponsors this week are:-

winner receives 3 digital images (no papers)


winner receives 3 digital images

Great card and I love the colours you have used. Reminds me that spring might not be too far away - or is that just wishful thinking? Hugs Christine xx

It's a gorgeous floral image Lorraine but it's he colours that really draw me, what a perfect combo of the yellow and lilacs and soft shading on the petals.

A stunning card. Your colouring is so delicate and looks amazing! It's amazing how time flies when you are engrossed in colouring like that, occupational flow is the technical term for it - gosh I actually did listen in my lectures at uni! Have a great day, Cara x

Erika said...

Another stunner Lorraine, those daisies are "darling" and well named. You have coloured them beautifully and I love your matting and layering. At this time of year with all the lovely bright sunshine, cough, cough, it is quite difficult to get the best photographs. I feel your pain but think you've done a grand job.

Hugs Erika. x

It was totally worth spending time on the colouring because that was what immediately caught my eye when I saw this design; it's really beautiful and the flowers have so much depth to them.
The pretty layers and CAS design set your colouring off beautifully, including that lovely mirri layer...yes, I can see that it's mirri!
Big hugs, Kat xx
