Rose The Hippy

Morning and hope everyone is well-we are starting a new challenge at A Inky Mess sponsored by Scrap N'Dipity,I used the beautiful image Rose The Hippy coloured with promarkers and resized to fit on a 4" square Fat Page.I added frantage on the peace sign because I dropped a baby wipe which I had just cleaned the embossing folder with and as image was already cut out and coloured decided to cover!The background was made by stamping with an embossing folder and the strip across the same both folders were craft mag freebies,a piece of corrugated packing over the top,lace under middle strip and liquid pearls from stash.Creative Die-cut circle was made with silver and gold Aztec metallic paint brushed onto black card and everything was put on with silicone for depth.

A Happy Accident-Just Imagine!

I actually have a CAS card to share today -it started off with paint on a stencil instead of cleaning it pressed it onto card then stencilled Distressed Dots from Creative Expressions,then I was going to cut a die-cut from the center then inlay the die--BUT--because I didn't tape the die it slipped and so having watched Let Leonie Loose last week and seeing her recover from a happy accident I then cut all the odd bits off and left the aperture,layering onto blue paper then black cardstock,then stamped imagine from Crafters Companion-quite pleased with result lol.
