Through the Craft Room Door Challenge

This week at Through the Craft Room Door our challenge of 

Always Anything goes

is sponsored by 

The image I was paired to work with made me think of say a woman who has breast cancer and has maybe finished her last round of chemotherapy. She is toasting to her victory.

My image was printed onto Strathmore watercolor paper. My printer didn't want to take that thick stuff but it finally did however it cut off two of the 6 images. That kind of narrowed it down to which image I was going to use. I colored her in with Peerless watercolors and then her dress is Black Sout distress ink with water. I die cut the image out using a Spellbinders die (#8) and inked the inside with Spun Sugar distress ink.

The pink patterned paper is by Studio G and the black by My Mind's Eye. The black strip between the image and the sentiment is washi tape with the pink flowers and flowers' center by Recollections and the black and white paper flower is by Creative Memories. The sentiment is a Just Rite stamp that was heat embossed with Versa Mark ink and MyStamp Box white embossing powder. I did use a gold Wink of Stella pen on her crown and the champagne and then a clear pen on the other sparkly parts of the image.

Thanks for looking.
