Anything goes at Crafty Ann's

Hi, where have the last 2 weeks gone? I can't believe its time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog!! Our theme this week is an easy one 'Anything Goes' and as a change from all those winter and Christmas cards, I've used Crafty Ann's gorgeous Tropical Beach digi (available from Crafty Ann's Shop)

I've used one of Crafty Ann's woodgrain papers for the bp and an embossed woodgrain paper from my stash. The digi image has been brayered using  Big&Juicy ink and then colour added with promarkers to the palm tree, loungers and the parasol.

I was hoping to do a tutorial for brayering a digi and have started it but between the weather, work being a nightmare and a bad back I still haven't finished it so hopefully I'll get chance over Christmas/New Year.

I've added some flowers, shells and twine to my stash to finish off.

I love this beach scene, wouldn't it be nice to be laid on the beach now instead of waiting for the next lot of snow to arrive? Ah well not long till summer I suppose lol

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Ai Factory: Anything goes
Stamps R us: Anything goes
Passion 4 Promarkers: Anythiing Goes

Thanks for calling by,
Claire xx

  16. Ooo Claire can't wait for the tutorial, I love brayering but don't get to do enough of it and your scene is stunning. Maybe do a project with the grandchildren over the Christmas holidays (if the weather lets up enough so I can get to the UK). What I would give for laying on that beach right now.
    Hugs Shirley x x

    The addition of the shells and flowers are the perfect finishing touch.
