Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes Challenge 2

This is our second challenge over at the new blog 'Inspiration Destination' so come along and join us.

My card blank is by Joanna Sheen. The purple card is by Papermill and the pretty backing paper is from Dovecraft. The image, Chopper, is by Dr Digi and is available here.

I coloured the chopper image with my Promarkers and cut with a Spellbinders die before using Distress Ink on the edges. I cut three lengths of purple card in various widths and crossed them across the backing paper. I made three very 'dodgy' looking banners and added a gem to the bottom of each. The gems are part of  my new supply from Meiflower that I bought at the Alexandra Palace Craft fair last weekend. The Grungy stamp is from Lili of the Valley, also bought at Ally Pally, and backed with a purple scalloped die cut. This brings back happy memories of my two sons riding their Chopper and Tomahawk bikes when they were young.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

  1. Great card Hazel, love the bike, I remember the choppers well, don't make bikes like they used to do they, they all look so flimsy these days!
