Papertake Weekly GDT - Anything Goes

Hello my lovelies HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!! May 2013 bring peace, happiness, good health & lots of love to you all. Well 1 year ago today Megan was in slow labour with my grandaughter, now a year later I can tell you she is expecting my next grandchild wooooo hooooooo. Yes my new year has started fantastic I am sooooooooooo excited to have another grandchild on the way, this one wasnt planned but they are still happy & excited.

Anyhoo onto my post which is my GDT for Papertake Weekly & this week the challenge is....
.........nice easy one to start the new year ;0)
I have used a fabulous Manga type image that was free, I found this through my fab teamie Wenda over at CME, there was loads of awesome ones!!!! This one is 'Venus Goth' & from an artist called Sureya.

I have added a Marianne corner, fab distressed 'Storm Cloud' seam binding & a butterfly cabochon from my stash.

I coloured this fab image with copics........
E13, E21, E00, E000, R22, R20
N7, N5, N3, N1 & Black & White prisma pencils
B97, B95, B93, B91
I also did the white lengths with white gel pen & the laces I did with a blue Stabilo pen.
I soooooooooo enjoyed colouring this & I have a lot more ;0)
Added a gorgeous Prima Flower, a Joy Crafts die cut in half, some antique bronze chain & a key charm, which I cant remember where it was from at the mo :0(

The paper is Glitz 'Vintage Blue' which is on sale at the moment at My Crafty Heart, I inked the edges with dark blue ink & matted onto pale grey card to match the grey tones in the image & papers ;0) Added a couple of Melissa Frances pearls to the corners.

Sorry for the poor photo's I'm really struggling with my lamps, I do have bulbs on order & I made sure to order extra for spares lol. Will be so glad when they are delivered!!

Pop on over to Papertake Weekly to see the other fabulous creations that all the ladies have created.

Thank you for the birthday wishes yesterday, we had a fabulous day. Although our van ended up off the road, hubster went the chemist to pick up Natalie's meds & the power steering went while he was out, was lucky not to crash. RAC came out & the power steering pump is broke so needs a new one, unfortunately cus its new year we have to wait until tomorrow. We are all house bound until then as the van is needed for Natalie's wheelchair so we cant take her anywhere :0(

Anyhoos never mind once cleaning is done I have an excuse to craft ;0) Will be round to you all soon I did half last night but I am catching up with you all. Thankyou as always for stopping by mmwah xxxx

can I be cheeky and ask another question, you mentioned your day light lamps and the bulbs, which type do you get hun and do you shine them through the tent sides or straight onto the image, still trying to sort mine out and failing quite well too lol,
