Vintage Elusions challenge Fantasy/Anything Goes

Hi Folks, it's time for another challenge over on the Vintage Elusions Challenge Blog and the theme this week is Fantasy/ Anything Goes. I have been working with a great image from a company called Gingerloft Designs. I decided to go for a one layer card, with postage very much in mind, it costs so much these days, doesn't it? However, I could easily enhance my design, with addition of some extra leaves and flowers if I was going to hand deliver the card.

I started by printing the image onto card, and then stamping some stars onto the white space using Matte Medium. I allowed this to dry, before I used various colours of Distress Ink over the top. The Matte Medium acts as a resist, and causes the stars to show as white against the background. I used a small star cluster fom Lavinia stamps to stamp randomly inbetween the larger stars. The large word stamp is also from Lavinia stamps. I have then simply coloured the image with pencils.

I like the fact that I could use this card for Christmas if I wanted to, or for a general Birthday card, it will be a useful addition to my storecupboard card collection.

There are some great prizes up for grabs this week from our sponsors on the challenge blog, so why don't you hop over and take a look? See what my team mates have been up to as well, and try and make something for the challenge. It can be a card, an altered item, a tag, whatever you like.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

The colouring is beautifully soft & gentle with a terrific matching of the background. She really glows & I just love the flow & gelam of her hair.
