Besties UK Challenge Anything Goes & Wings

Good morning and welcome back to my blog ...

Today over at Besties UK we have a new challenge 

Anything Goes (A) or Wings(B)

You can enter an ANYTHING GOES project or a wings project ... this is any image that has wings

This is my design team card for the challenge, I loved this image she is so cute and I wanted to apply a new technique I have learnt by adding a grey pen into the mix to change the colour... she can be purchased at the store here



1 /2 sheet coronations blue card
1/2 sheet pretty paper
Printed image - img008

bow maker

To make this card I used a square card as a base and layered card and paper .5cm smaller each time to  make the correct layers of card then paper.
I layered a band across the centre of the card of card and paper.
Printed out the image on Xpress blending card and coloured with my copics adding a neutral grey to change the tone of  the colours.  Layer image onto blue card.

I airbrushed the flowers with blue and grey to get matching colours, then arranged with leaves at the side of my image, I used wire and a pencil to create the wired loops.
I added a triple bow and some pearls to finish the card

I used the following copics to colour my image
Skin - e000, 00, 11, 21, 04, r20
Clothes/Wings - B41, N1, B45
Eyes - b12, b41
Hair - E44, 47, 49 

I hope I have inspired you to take part in our challenge .... thanks for stopping by today to visit
