Ladybug Crafts Challenge – Anything Goes!

Hello, how are you keeping?

As it is the first day of the month I am here to show my DT creation for the March Ladybug Crafts challenge, and the theme this time is Anything Goes. Everyone’s favourite!

As it was my mum’s birthday this week I thought I would decorate a gift bag for her.




The paper is from an old Kanban kit, and the image is the uber gorgeous Rosie by Mi Ran available here Mi Ran has some amazing designs in her shop  and you must check them out! I coloured Rosie with Spectrum Noir markers and pencils and cut her out using Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares, cutting another in black to mat behind.



To match the netting on her hat I coloured some Spider Web with black StazOn, added feathers and black pearl topped hat pins and some roses made from Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.



The tag is made using a Kanban sentiment and more of the paper. The ribbon was some I cut out of a black cardigan. You know the ones that are supposed to help keep the item on the hanger but ends up creeping out to be on display for all the world to see. Needless to say it got the chop! Better on a project I thought.

So now it’s your turn, and we all love Anything Goes!  Scoot over to the Ladybug Crafts challenge to join in and check out the amazing DT inspiration.

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
