Welcome to the Inky Chicks 1st Challenge !!!

Hi Crafty Bloggers
It's time for the first Challenge at the Inky Chicks  !! 
It's a super Challenge of Anything Goes 

 I hope you will join us in our fortnightly challenge 

There are lots of fabulous inspiration and a super voucher up for grabs..

So proud to be part of this talented team !!

 Please check out the designer's beautiful blogs , Lisa ,Becky,Melly & Jenny!! and our guest designers Bev & Alberto

I have chosen Joyful Tilda  to colour . I have used canvas to stamp her on and then coloured her with walnut stain distress ink in varying shades adding water to lighten.

 I used a white gel pen in little dots to lighten areas that were too dark . Around the image I used spun sugar distress ink to make the background.

I made a regular 6 x 6 card base. I put some pink Kaisercraft acrylic paint around the edges randomly with a large brush  and then used spellbinders dies for the layers using Kasiercraft Magnolia Grove Collection Papers and cut out sentiment .

 I used some pink lace trim for softness. The berries are from Magnolia with a vintage brad in the centre . The deep pink flower is from Prima with a Kort & Godt daisy in the middle . The other flower and pendant are from costume jewellery. Lastly the beautiful vintage locket opens at the top .

I hope you will join us in out First Challenge , It's all so exciting !! Can't wait to see your creations for our first Challenge !!

I would like to enter my card into the following super challenges
