Hibiscus

     Good Tuesday Morning, friends and followers.  If it's Tuesday, it must be time for a new "Anything Goes" challenge Through the Craft Room Door.  Our wonderful sponsor this week is Sandi's Samples and I've used one of Sandi's lovely image, called "Hibiscus."


     This time, I set aside my alcohol markers and picked up my colored pencils.  I wanted a bit of a pencil line look to the image so I didn't blend the coloring at all.   I love the three blossoms in the image and added a three tiny gems to the center of the flowers.  The image is die cut and the edges are inked.  There are sets of three holes punched along the sides of the die cut and that gives both texture and dimension.

     The die cut behind the image is double cut, once in green and once in brown, then mounted slightly offset.  The image is popped up on dimensional dots.  I used pastel green CS to make the card base.  This is another of those cards which is really pretty CAS but looks a lot fancier because of the fancy cuts.  

     Challenges:
Sister Act
Treasured Times

     Are you going to show us what you've made this week?  After all, TTCRD is always Anything Goes so whatever you make fits right in.  And don't forget that the new fall magazine has been released.  I even have a tutorial published in it.  :-D  See you there.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
