A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Challenges 4 Everybody #20 - Anything Goes

Oh yes! I'm back again ..... hope you're not all tired of me yet lol.  

Today begins the start of another fresh challenge at Challenges 4 Everybody and, as always, it's ANYTHING GOES

We are sponsored this next fortnight by the fabulous Bugaboo who are offering our winner a choice of 7 digi stamps!

The image I chose for today's card is Dottie 2 Step and here she is ....

Isn't she fab!  

I made a gatefold card and drew a kind of saloon door shape to the front and cut around.  I then cut 1cm deep strips out of Kraft card and lined them up so that they hang slightly over the one below to give the wooden slat effect.  I then inked to add a look of weathered wood!

The backing papers are from a REALLY old set by Dovecraft but I think they're perfect for this dancing cowgirl :)

I used one of my Kanban stamps for the sentiment then twirled some twine around to make it look like a lasso!

I coloured Dottie with my Copics and, for some reason completely unknown to me, I decided to give her blue hair to match her jeans lol.  I do love colouring 'different' hair colours - you can check my other tones I've tried out HERE and HERE if you like ..... they're definitely a lot of fun to try out!

I hope you like my take on Dottie 2 Step and I'd love for you to pop on over to the Challenge and see what else my DTeamies have come up with and to pop your creations in whilst you're there! 

I would like to enter Dottie into the following:
