J is for Just As You Like (Anything Goes)

Here is my card for the ABC Challenges challenge that starts today. This challenge letter this time is J and the theme is Just As You Like It which means we can make a card where anything goes. Our sponsors for this challenge are Marianne Designs and The Ribbon Girl, so I decided to use a delightful Marianne designs stamp and 2 beautiful Marianne design die cuts. Here is my card: 

The image I chose was In the Sun from Marianne Designs Don & Daisy stamps. What a pleasant way to spend an afternoon in the sun reading a book. Here is a closer look:

I enjoyed colouring Daisy, especially the grass where I tried to get some texture with my copics. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Xpress Card and  coloured with Copic Sketch (and Ciao) Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20, hair: E50, E51, E53, E55, E57 clothes: B0000, B21, B23, B24, B26, grass: G20, G82, G85, YG03, flowers: Y17, Y11, Y15, Y26, book: C00, C3 and C5.

If you haven’t already stopped by ABC Challenges, please do and see what the rest of our fabulous DT have created. Then why don't you try our latest challenge for yourself.

Cheers, for now....
