Anything goes with Crafty Sentiments

Hi there and welcome back after a lovely Christmas and New year i hope?

We have had lots of flooding down here in the south west of the UK and a couple of times have not been able to get out of our village ( go figure). But the children have had the fun watching films and playing games while poor mum and the rather happy dog go traipsing off for a walk each day...nothing like feeling like a drowned rat lol.

Anyway its time for challenge  #24 

This week is Anything goes with Crafty Sentiments Designs

We chose some lovely Manga images this time round just to try colouring something different.

I was lucky to have the digi Jason and Eve

Unfortunately these are not the greatest pictures as this stepper card just wasn't playing nice when stood up no matter how i anchored it but it is lovely to look at!

I used two sheets of 8x8 from the Melody Ross designer collection  called the Lydia collection. And used some sheer yellow ribbon with thicker yellow lines on it at the bottom of each step .  At the front i added a sentiment that i used TH distress ink pad scattered straw on and on the scallops gathered twigs.

The back of the card i used ribbon again and added a couple of the lovely recollection paper flowers that i have been given in the past...The image was again distressed using scattered straw distress ink pad round the edges and then mounted onto silver card and then yellow and i used small sticky pads to separate each layer for some dimension.

Herwe is a closer look at the image again not hte greatest but i think eventually i will have to invest in a light tent as the lighting on a dull day is terrible.

I used the following Copics:

Eve ....Skin E 00,01, 02  R 20 cheeks
Hair E 13, 15, 17, 27
Dress YR 01, 12, 15, 18
Eyes G 20, 24

Jason...Skin E 00, 01, 02 R 21 cheeks
Hair YR 21, 23, 24, 27
Eyes B 91, 95
Top G 00, 02, 05, 09
Trousers B 32, 34, 37

Heart R 35 and R 37
