Shine, Shine, Shine

Where did that weekend go?
Here's what I spent this evening making..... what a challenge this was, I ended up getting in a right mess with this card, kept trying different border punches and scissors for the edging on the image and sentiment, ended up with little bits and pieces all over! Think I quite like it, its a bit plain but I couldn't find any patterned papers that would go with the plaid effect paper.

I am going to enter this for 2 challenges, Mojo Monday, it looks like Mr Linky is still open on this one, so fingers crossed, if not I still enjoyed using the sketch and Passion for Promarkers which is to use Lemon & Meadow Green, really liked these colours together.
I used the last uninked Anya from Rain, Snow & Shine, made my own backing paper using the chisel end of my Promarkers, first time I've used that end, always use the fine end of the markers, quite like the end result, just don't look in my bin and see all the attempts that didn't end up on the card! I didn't want to get my Cricut out so resorted to border punches and scissors, settled on the sunflower border punch (Fiskars) but opted to put it on 2 sides only as it was far too busy on all 4 sides. I added some Glossy Accents on the glasses but don't look too closely as I put my finger in it before it was properly dry!

CS - Paper Mill & Range
BP - K & Co paper stack, Citrus pack from HOTP
Stamps - Shine Miss Anya, sentiment from Hero Arts set
Ink - Memento, Rich Cocoa
Promarkers - Lemon, Meadow Green, Dusky Pink, Terracotta, Raw Sienna & Warm Grey 1

Am off to bed now, otherwise I won't want to get up in the morning......
