Tango Whispy - PSC 41

Hello again my friends.  Happy Wednesday.  You're going to love our challenge this week.  Yep!  It's Anything Goes!  Don't you just love that.  You can create anything that you like: card, tag, altered item. Be sure to include a sentiment on the front.  What can I say - I love making cards.  Here's mine.

This card was actually created to be submitted to an online magazine, but was not selected, so I chose to share it with you for this challenge.  The theme had been to use Tangerine Tango as the main color which is why there is so much orange, but I love how it turned out.

The image is Whispy from Saturated Canary.  She has got some of the best digi images.  It was printed out on Xpress It Blending Card.  I used Stampin Up Tangerine Tango for the card base and all the mats.  The dp is from Bo Bunny - Country Garden.  It was just perfect for this.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, stamped with Basic Black on Stampin Up Whisper White.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Do you like those little squiggles coming off the flowers?  It took me some time to figure that out, but all you do is NOT cut off the stems of the flowers, but instead twist them around a thin pencil or some other kind of stick to make the curlies.  Easy peasy.

The image was coloried with Copic markers:  Skin - E04, E11, E50, R08; Eyes - B0000; Hair: Y00, Y17, Y18; Clothing:  G82, YG61, YG63, YR00, YR02, YR15, YR18.

I also used some Frosted Lace Stickles on her wings.

Our sponsor for this week is Avocado Arts:

And the prize that you are playing for is this fabulous stamp set.
Wish I was able to play to get this one.  Lots of fun images.  So, now you just need to go to your stamping place and create something!   For more inspiration, hop on over to the Perfect Sentiment Challenge blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has for you this week.  I've gotten a peek and there is some great creativity going on.

With your creation you could be the winner of the fabulous prize shown above or you might be picked as one of the Perfect 3!  Good luck.  Have a fabulous week!
