Dream away

Hi there,

I have a new card for the most recent Limited Runs progressive challenge (only just got it completed in time - I coloured the image ages ago, but kept getting diverted from making the card up!). But here it is finally:

I used a lilac base card with a course grain to enhance the distressed effect. I then used something Pumpkin distressed ink and a chevron stencil that I got free with a Making Cards magazine I believe. I dabbed the ink into te stencil direct, and then for the first time used my blending pad to move the ink into the chevrons. The image was coloured with Promarkers and die-cut using X-cut large oval nesting die. I inked the edge with the same ink as the card base.
The sentiment was stamped using Scattered Straw distress ink and some sentiment stamps that were also free with a magazine. Finally I added a red bow and flower, with a red diamante centre.

I would liek to enter this card into the following challenges:
Firstly Limited Runs Progressive (obviously)
Not just cards - Anything Goes
The Male Room #91 Birthday
MAWTT #77 For the boys
TIOT - Inspired by a song (Zombie by the Cranberries)
Allsorts - From boys to men

I now have some mudskippers to show you (Bristol Zoo):

A flower posing with some bumblebees and hoverflies :D:

Look at te colour on that flower!

And finally my recent cross stitch finish, which was for my Assissi technique in focus:
Thanks for looking,
