Lemon Shortbread Challenge - Tuesday 26 September 2017 - Anything goes

Here is my second creation for the Lemon Shortbread Design Team.

The theme is "anything goes".

I love making pages for project books but the bought one can become too full with not many creations made ie if they have a good depth to them.  Instead of buying a book I have made my own with some cardboard covers (ready to be decorated), watercolour card pages (if I decided to do lots of inking or waterclouring for backgrounds), basic white card (if I am going to attach normal matting and layering to it) and finally held together with large book rings.  I'm not sure how many pages I will get in it but it will be certainly more than the bought book and it will be easier to take pages in/out for decorating.

For my creation I have used the Lemon Shortbread image called "Bat Flapper Girl".  I have coloured the image in the image with Promarkers and used chalks/Pan Pastels to get a moody background for the image.  I have always used the colour combo for skin of Blush, Sunkissed Pink and Coral.  Now all of a sudeen I've got addicted to the colour scheme Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal.  Strange how we change our colour favourites eh?

The purple backing paper is from Summertime Designs and the black card is from my stash.

On the purple paper I have used my Clearly Besotted Halloween stamps and used the bat image and then stamped on the image "batty for you" which came in the set as well.  I have finished the page off with two different ribbons, black lace, brads and die-cut bats.
