Distress Oxide Inked round girly card (Polkadoodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for a new Polkadoodles challenge, woohoo!! I hope you'll join in as I love to see what you're all creating. Their challenge is always "anything goes" and you don't have to use one of their products. Nikky gives the DT a theme each time and this one was to create a round card.

For my card I have used a stunning image from the Darling Buds collection - she's called Crocus.

I die cut a white circle and scalloped circle and before I took them out of the metal die, I blended some oxide inks, sprayed lightly with water and dried off then took them out of the metal die which helped to give a crisp white edge to the dies. I used pinks and yellow Copics to colour her outfit and flowers for an orangy (is that a word hehe?) shade to them as well as the yellow and pinks. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Catch the Bug - anything goes 
Colour Crazy Challenge - anything goes W32 
The Corrosive Challenge - anything goes
Crafty Friends -  anything goes
Creative Craft Cottage - no patterned paper

Happy Little Stampers -  anything goes with dies
Lemon Shortbread -  anything goes
Let's Craft & Create - anything goes with option of lots of layers  
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes  
The Paper Shelter - Punches and dies 
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - Sprinkling and Splattering - I used distress oxide inks & water to create the background and added Nuvo drops too.
Word Art Wednesday - anything goes  

Thanks so much for dropping by, enjoy your weekend everyone!
