Anything Goes

Time for a new CD Sunday challenge again! Carol has chosen this time and decides that Anything Goes!

I have to say I loved doing this card for my step daughter Becky. Lots of scope to play with Carol's choice of Anything Goes so I went for it!

I used a backing paper from The Lace Collection CD from Creative Crafting World. A great CD with lots of lovely lacy designs that are useful for so many occasions. For the next layer I played with stamps and distress inks and then splashed some water at it! I then took some white card and stamped it with a great stamp and sentiment by Sheena Douglas, available from Crafter's Companion. I used a stitched effect die to cut the square image out. The stamping is done in brown Momento ink and coloured using alcohol marker pens. I finished the hair using Spectrum Noir pencils. The goggles have Glossy Accents to look like glass. I then used copper card to cut out the pipes, cogs and flowers. The only other ingredients were white button brads and clear gems for the centres of the cogs and flowers.

I'm looking forward to see what everyone else makes for this challenge. Don't forget to visit CD Sunday Challenge Blog for details of how to enter.
