Anything Goes Challenge With Through The Purple Haze

This is my first challenge for Through The Purple Haze and I've really loved making this card. 

The challenge this week is sponsored by Crafty Sentiments.

The theme this week is 'Anything Goes' and we were given some lovely digis from Crafty Sentiments with a Manga theme. Now I LOVE Manga and brought a book on how to draw Manga while I was on holiday in Bath. I chose this girl digi as dressing up in cute outfits/costumes is a big thing in Manga and I loved the sailor style outfit.


 I coloured her in using Spectrum Noirs and chose to colour her hair purple (using PL1, 2, 3 and 4). I wanted to try a new technique for me and went for the shiney hair look.


 When it came to putting the card together I didn't want to add too many layers (making the card heavy in weight) so I ran the chisel tip of a Spectrum Noir Pen (PL1) around the edge to give a faux matting look. I then layered some pattern card onto purple co-ordinations card stock and then layered it all up in a jaunty angle on the card.


I added some paper roses to my card. These were left over from a felt gingerbread couple I made for a friend and had wire attached but I snipped it off with scissors to make the backs flat.

I finished off matting and layering a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment onto the card.

I loved making this card and it was so fun to colour hair in a bright 'unnatural' colour.
