Anything Goes at Southern Girls Challenge

Hi all.  A new challenge is up at Southern Girls Challenge Blog.  It's an ANYTHING GOES challenge.  So I'm hoping to see you all there with your projects.

Our sponsor is PPinkydolls

 


I printed the image onto some watercolour paper and used my Zig Clean Color Brush Makers to colour her in.  I then die cut with a Spellbinders Oval die.  Next step was to add some texture to my card base with a stencil and some texture paste. Once it dried I used some Victorian Velvet distress ink to sponge the card.  I then layered it onto some dark purple card and onto a soft lilac card base.  I added some punched flowers topped with some pearls.  I haven't added a sentiment as yet.

So with a ANYTHING GOES theme there's lots of scope to join us.

How is it that although we used the same image, they look entirely different? Yours looks pretty and delicate with lovely flowing hair where mine looks mournful and sad with lank and lifeless hair! Yours wins lol! Gorgeous! X
