Saturated Canary Hollywood in Red

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Hope my typing works out ok because I managed to cut myself when die cutting yesterday-but its a new project I cant wait to see how it comes out and share with you all so hopefully itl all be worth it!
Here I am with a Saturated Canary card, I wanted it to be simple and stylish like the digi and I think ive managed to pull it off! :-)
I coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then cut round her with a nestie. I used Echo Park 'Victoria Gardens' paper and I only used one paper because this one is so stunning you really dont need any more. I then  placed the nestie slightly slanted, added a 'Thinking of you' sentiment, strips of ribbon from Lidl and Card Candy :-) I took this photo against the backdrop of our gorgeous Azalea and some grasses-they are spectacular so wanted to make the most of them!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Catch the Bug: Anything Goes
Inspire Me Fridays: Anything Goes
Fat pages and Cards with Attitude: Anything Goes
I Love Promarkers: Use a Digi
Passion for Promarkers: Inspiration photo (Red and Black)

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
