The Ton April Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello everyone!

It's already the first of April and time for a new challenge at The Ton Challenge blog!
The theme for this month is ANYTHING GOES!


On today's card I used the beloved Sending Peonies and the coordinating die of Brushed Hugs.


To start off I blended the background using Deep Emerald, Soft Garden, Cali Blue and Arctic Sky dye inks. I then placed the peony cluster from Sending Peonies stamp set on Misti tool and stamped it in embossing ink on the front panel and on a shimmery cardstock. I stamped it again on my white card base in Crystal Pewter. I gold heat embossed the image on the front panel and on the shimmery cardstock piece. I repeated the process after placing the stamp on the other diagonal corner of the card. I die cut the brushed hugs using coordinating die from the shimmery cardstock piece with gold heat embossed peony cluster and again from a red foam.


I colored the peonies using Copic markers in the same color as the background to add some dimension. I colored the peonies on the Hugs die cut as well, this time in silver using a gel pen. I trimmed the front panel slightly smaller than A2, glued it flat on the card base and added the red foam ahd shimmery hugs die cut. To finish off I added some sequins from Cinderella's Ride, Flamenco Sunset, Winter Thaw Couture mix and Glass Slippers sequins mix.

Hope I could inspire you to join in our April challenge. Don't forget to hop over to The Ton Challenge blog to see some amazing projects from my team mates and to get all the details about the challenge. One winner will get one $50 gift certificate to The Ton shop.
