Harjuku Girl Dominoes

Hi Everyone 
It's the second week of our fortnightly challenge at Art With No Boundaries 
Anything Goes with a bonus round Asian Inspired. This week I have used a wooden art blank. Painted it red then black over the top, sanded back the edges so that the red came through.I then edged it with a gold pen. I printed the Asian bamboo backing paper from CS Designs  and coloured it with my newly acquired pan pastels (they are so cool!!!). I also highlighted the bamboo stems with a gold pen. I coloured the image Harjuku Girl Dominoes 2 from CS Designs with pro markers and prisma pencils using a gold pen to accent her hair added metal charms from my stash. please check the other DT's designs they are gorgeous. I will be entering this into the following challenges.

Dad's Shabby chic box

Hi Everyone
I just thought I 'd share this with you all. I have had this book box kicking around my craft room for a while now. Well! it's my dads birthday next week . He is 81 years young. So I thought!   Ding!!!!  (light bulb moment) I'll cover that box and make a card to match. He can use it to put his nik naks in. He has been painting vintage motorbike pictures lately, so I thought I would keep to the theme. The papers and toppers are from Shabby chic vintage travel cd by Debbi Moore designs. I used leather effect card for the spine and velvet paper for the inside . I added metal corners and cogs plus a faux lock from my stash I will be entering this into the following challenges   Anything goes Anything goes Anything but a card Anything goes   Texture Anything goes Anything goes
