* Crafts Galore Encore: Signs of Spring

Happy New Year!

January brings another Anything Goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The sponsor this month is the fabulous Oddball Art Co.who are offering the winner a $10 store voucher. 

Lizzy at Oddball Art Co. kindly gave the DT some digital stamps  to work with and here is the card I made:

I chose the Signs of Spring digi stamp and this lovely wide eyed girl comes with a choice of four sentiments. I coloured the image with Copics and die cut it with a fancy oval die. The background sky was inked with Broken China Distress Oxide. I used digital design paper for the background and popped the oval on foam tape with some doilies beneath to give a softer edge. I made some flowers using white card, a die and some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide. The flowers turned out to be too pink, so I dry brushed gesso onto the petals. Grey pearls were popped in to the centre off each flower and some leaves were arranged around the oval.
The sentiment was cut with a stitched rectangle die, attached to the card and a pink bow placed above it.

Many thanks to Lizzy at Oddball Art Co. for generously sponsoring and supporting this challenge. We hope you'll pop over to the shop to see the many lovely products on sale.

Also, please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DTs wonderful designs. 

We'd love to see your creations.
Remember the challenge is always 'Anything Goes' and so you can create any type of project - it doesn't have to be a card.
