Julia Spiri Pocket Letter Challenge DT Inspiration

So excited to share todays post with you all. Julia loves to challenge her DT and boy was the theme for this weeks challeneg of ' Anything Goes with a twist of a pocket letter' a challenge for us all as none of us had ever done one before ( you can find the challenge here ) I don't mind admitting I was a bit nervous, but I love to try new stuff so took a deep breath and got stuck in. I must admit I surprised myself with the result and I am thrilled with it.

I used two gorgeous images from the amazing new release, the Venice Collection. You can find them here in the store. You won't want to miss these I promise- every one is a stunner! 

I created the background with pastel aquatint inks, and set to work with a mask, paint and various stamps, some of which I coloured with twinkling H20's. The digis are coloured with copics. The sentiment stamp seemed  most appropriate considering my earlier statement about the challenge daunting me, and is by Visible Image.

Do play along if you can. You don't have to follow the twist, but it's fun if you do. You don't even have to use a Julia Spiri image to be eligible to win. We'd love to see your entries.

You can also follow Julia on the Facebook fan page and share your creations there. 

Thanks for stopping by.
