Outside the box lol

Hi guys,
It's Thursday already wow, doesn't time fly, so of course it's colour create and paper play time,

I've had a change today for my colour create creation and done a door hanger this is one of Susie's dies available from her web shop which will be open again shortly after her house move,
the challenge is our lovely Kerry's choice and is for 
optional extra glitter

above is the inspirational picture,

I coloured Tilda with copics, then on the outside edge I stamped a grunge flower using Distress ink, then using a slightly different flower I used it on the main door hanger using a darker ink,
I added glitter to her shoes and hem but it's hard to see, need to practise this again lol,
the gorgeous roses are WOC and the pearls are from stash,
Crafty calendar ~ April shower bring forth may flowers
Papertake weekly ~ anything goes

Paper plays challenge is 
well I've done something I love to do which is to have one of my images slightly coming off the main image, I masked this gorgeous new Dog from Magnolia onto the main image then did another one which I then cut out and layered onto my main image so that I had him in the right place but he went beyond the square layer!
hence outside the box lol,
this time my images are coloured with Distress inks and have hints of glitter on them, I also love to distress my edges and sew on my papers so of course I've done that too lol
I have also used my Fiskars border punch again, which I've had ages and only just started using properly lol,
ABC challenge ~ T is for two images, sorry just realised mine has three sorry if it doesn't count
7 Kids ~ April flowers
MDU ~ lace and ribbons
One stop craft ~ stitches

Well guys it gives rain for us today, still with the fires on the moss land not to far away it sounds like we need it, hope to catch up with you later, have fun 
Love and hugs Liz xx
