A new challenge from Crafty Ann!

Hi there, Friday morning again and a new challenge from Crafty Ann's Challenge, this time our challenge is to use Ribbon, Gems and embellishment(s) made from card or paper.

I've used one of Crafty Ann's gorgeous Venetian Masks for this card and also one of Ann's new bps. The mask is coloured with promarkers and has stickles and gems for a bit of bling. The two black squares are black card which has been cuttlebugged and then inked with brilliance pearlescent ivy ink for a hint of green. I've used some crushed satin ribbon from my stash and for my card/paper embellies I've used a buckle and some buttons, printable embellies of course from Crafty Ann's. Ann is so clever, these embellies are really useful and when I'm printing digistamps out I fill in any left over space with some of these embellies then they are ready to go and I can just colour them to match my project (The sheet also contains bows and a variety of shaped buckles) The buckle is coloured with a black stardust pen and has dots of lime stickles. The buttons are coloured with promarkers and triple embossed. They are soooooo effective in real life. The bp and the embossed squares are all mounted on some greeny black glitter card from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Sarah Hurley: Colouring
 Hodge Podge Shop: Monochomatic (a brand new challenge blog just starting up!!)
Southern Girls: Glitter it up
Meljens: Anything goes
Moving along with the times: The theme is anything goes but you must use promarkers (and they have a fab promarker prize from this weeks sponsor Letraset )

Thanks for calling today. I love this weeks challenge theme and i'm looking forward to seeing your creations and getting some ideas from your paper embellies too :-)
