A Place to Start - January's Anything Goes Challenge

Welcome back and a Happy 2022 to you all.

We have a new challenge this week at A Place to Start and our theme is as always "Anything Goes".

Our sponsor this week is 

Remember to visit their store to see the great selection of digital stamps and papers.

Remember they have a new challenge every month., visit their challenge blog to be inspired.

 

I made these two cards that follow using our sponsor's images. 

For my first card I used


I just love this bold cute selfie image.  I used some of my mix media paper for the background to the card.  The paper was made using a Gelli print that I made using acrylic paint, stencils, glitter and a black permanent marker.  The image was coloured with Copic Markers, and glitter pens in several colours was used n the background, boots and dress,  It is was a fun card to make.

For my second card I used



I think this image is such a cool lady. I coloured her with Copics and highlighted her hair with a sliver gelly roll pen.  The arrows and bicycle wheels are both die cuts by Tim Holtz. The background paper is from my stash.
