Ilana amidst the roses

We have a new theme at Everybody Art Challenge and we want to see "roses in the background" of your projects.  Do come and play along and share some love with the Design Team by leaving comments on their blogs.

Today I have used the beautiful "Ilana" image from Mo’s Digital Pencil.  I believe Ilana was an image from Mo's Patreon page HERE. There are three levels of patron to choose from with a minimum of just $2.50 per month!   

My roses are from an embossing folder.  I inked the debossed side of the folder with some Altenew ink and a brayer.  After winding the folder through my Sizzix Big Shot, the result is white roses embossed against a soft pastel lilac background.  Ilana has been coloured with Copics and I added some DPs - one of which is plaid for another challenge I am entering.

There is a Facebook page where members can upload their Mo Manning creations and we look forward to seeing you HERE And check out Mo's Dream Team Blog HERE for inspiration

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Can you Handle the Pressure April - Anything embossed (weather twist - which I did not use)
CD Sunday Plus - #131 Always anything digital goes
Colorful Options April - Pastels
Dragonfly Dreams April - Use a die
Passion for Markers -#735 Check it out (using plaid or checks or gingham) 

Tic Tac Toe #245 - I used the centre column for an embossed, square card with a die cut 

Edited to add a very happy top pick from the lovely team at CD Sunday Plus. Thank you ladies!  I'm chuffed!
