The Sketchy Challenges #97 Karina's Sketch & Anything Goes Theme

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

It's time for our monthly challenge at 

 We have a last sketch from Annette 
who is sadly leaving us we will miss her so much ;0( !! 

Annette's theme is ANYTHING GOES
you can use the sketch or theme or both !!
All the details are over on the blog along with all the 
gorgeous inspiration so why not pop on over ;0)

I have chosen another stamp from Magnolia to colour called rosebud Tilda and kitty kit from the Spring Fever Collection . I have coloured her with distress inks to match the lovely papers from Pion's Easter Blessings designer papers from Live & Love Crafts .

The base was made with papermill linen card where I have matted the papers onto. For the panels I have used another pretty design on top of the large die from the Vintage box 2 from Magnolia . Then I have added the Cherry Blossom Doohickey die with a flower die attached with a tiny brad again from the Vintage box ....The butterflies are also from that box !! I have also used some Prima bronze beads in the center of the flowers dipped in some soft gel medium this is my new glue just love this stuff !! 

I have added white lace on the front from Papermania and the lilac lace is from LLC on the back of the card . The roses are from Wild Orchid crafts and I used a gelato crayon to colour them to match her dress .The cute envelope is from the box and the cat charm from Magnolia with a daub of gesso and lastly a bow to finish with enamel dot .

I do hope you can join us and hope you are all having a lovely weekend

I have picked my favorite stamp at the moment she is so so cute she is called Tilda with spring flowers from the new Spring Fever Collection !! she has been coloured with distress ink mediums to match the stunning design paper from  Live & Love Crafts from Pion called Scent of Lavender  and loving lilacs at the moment can you tell lol !!! 

I have used the large die from Magnolia Vintage Box 2 for the base and also the center section also using Pion  paper it is a lovely mint colour another current favorite !! . I have cut the middle with scissors to tear the paper and tucked some lace behind it before putting my image on top which was cut with Lawn Fawn large stitched circle stackables die. The flowers are made with Magnolia Vintage daisy doohickey and peony die with pion papers and some stamens in the center . I have also added micro beads from Prima which I used some alcohol ink to colour to add texture and also a spritz of picket fence distress paint spray . 

I have cut two tags with Magnolia Doohickey Tilda tag and added on one the cute envelope die from The Vintage box with a butterfly charm from Magnolia which I painted with Prima acrylic paint and added a sprinkle of glamour dust too and tiny brad. I used the memories text on the other with some gorgeous shabby seam binding from Live & Love Crafts ..
