Crafty Catz Challenge #389 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge over at Crafty Catz.  This week our host is our wonderful Janette and the theme is Anything Goes, plus Janette gave the DT the added twist of using Autumn Colours and we would love it if you joined in with the twist but you don't have to.  We have a fabulous sponsor this week in the form of 



The DT were very kindly given some images to play along with and for my card I chose One Day, which I printed directly onto some orange cs. Then I had some darker orange cs which I ran through and inked embossing folder to give another tone of orange.  I then used another embossing folder and some brown cs to get the clock faces which I then added some gilding wax (this is still a new technique to me!) both background pieces were cut using an edged blade in my Purple Cows trimmer (I had forgotten about the other blades until I went to change the trimmer to the guillotine blade! lol) I then finished off with some orange bakers twine and two little keys.

Arachnia Ana for Betty

Hi, just thought I'd share this card with you as it's about to make it's way over to America.  I have used a special image from Simply B Stamps called Arachnia Ana, I have digitally paper pieced her dress using a paper from Bearly Mine Designs and then coloured her using copics and chameleons.  The background paper was on my computer but I don't remember where from (but it is very old!) the gates and cauldron were cut on the Cricut and some glitter added to the cauldron.

PRIZE......3 IMAGES OF WINNERS CHOICE

The DT were very generously given some wonderful images to play along with but unfortunately after printing my digi paper (from Raspberry Road Designs) and getting my frame cut on the Cricut when I went to print my image off I had no black ink left! I had to have a rummage around amongst my 'rubba' to find a stamp that fitted with what I had planned!  So I found this poppy image and decided to stick with a monochrome theme.  Coloured with Chameleons and some SN Sparkle added, a sizzix tag die cut little stamped sentiment, some ribbon and finally some gems.
