Exciting Day!

Sunday, 14 October 2012

Hi everyone!

Sorry I'm so late posting this evening, but I haven't been feeling great the past couple of days and the pain in my back and shoulders is leaving it difficult to sit at my computer.
But as I said in my title, it's an exciting day!
There's a brand spanking new challenge blog in blogland and it has just gone live today - and I'm on the DT!
Eclectic Ellapu is a fab collection of some of the most talented  ladies in blogland.  The DT has been split into 2 teams - one for every other challenge - the Pink team and the Purple team with a new challenge every week and there are some fantastic challenges coming up!  The Pink team have the pleasure of hosting the very first challenge and I'm delighted to be part of the Pink team!

So for our very first challenge, which Elaine is hosting, it's a lovely easy peasy one!

Anything Goes!

One of the things I love about this new challenge blog is that the winners are not chosen randomly but by the host of each weeks challenge, so it doesn't even depend on just one persons taste!  So let us see all your fab creations in our Anything Goes challenge!

Here's what I did...

The image is "Uptown Angel" digi by Kenny K and I coloured her with the following copics: Skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Top & shoes;RV34,32,10. Trousers;100,N9,7,5. Hair;E39,37,35,29. Lips;E09,07,04.  I used Tattered Rose and Black Soot distress inks for the background and then some Umount swirly stamps with the black ink and then after letting the image dry (I used my heat tool to speed things along) I heat embossed with holographic embossing powder.

The papers I used are Prima; Rondelle.  I used Spellbinders circle lg and labels 16 dies to cut and mount the image.  I used a small labels 16 die and cut it into quarters before adding a diamante brad from Stampin' Up! to each quarter and attaching to each corner with foam pads.  The sentiment it one of my old faithful Wild Rose Studio stamps embossed with Stampin' Up! embossing powder and punched with Stampin' Up! punches.  The ribbon is from my stash.

The inside uses the same papers and layout as the front.

So come over and join in the fun and excitement at Eclectic Ellapu, I can't wait to see what you do!
