Create and Inspire New Challenge

Today another challenge starts at Create and Inspire

Anything Goes! 

A little bit dark if you like...

We are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear

The prize will be a voucher from the shop...
do hope you will join in!

So on to my make...

The image I have used is Barbed Cross -
I was thinking Easter and Good Friday!
Here you see the image coloured with Promarkers and matted onto a simple black card base...

However I didn't stop there - I attached the image to a fat page - a 6 by 6 chipboard.

The chipboard was matted with black card and then layered with DP from Dovecraft 'Back to Basics'.

I added some diecut leaves and flowers, a lace flower and some black gems and completed the reverse side to match...

So far so good? I could finish there...

But I wanted to go a little further...

Remember that basic card I started with - that I added to side one?
 Well it opens to reveal a diecut pocket -

And what better to slip in there but an ATC...

This ATC uses a Smeared Ink Grumpy Bunny from Occasions coloured with Promarkers.
More papers from Back to Basic and some puffy sparkly candi.

I am going to link this to Smudgy Antics Challenge March

And then I decided the reverse side needed a slider using Grumpy Bunny from SLSLines again coloured with Promarkers. Easter is written using some stickers from my stash.

I will link this project to Artistic Impressions twist Easter

Happy Crafting!
