Debut Challenge for Marianne Design Divas.......

Today sees the first challenge of the Marianne Design Divas.  You have the whole month to play along and we would like to see your artwork incorporating something from the fabulous Marianne Creatables range. This month's challenge is:-

"Anything Goes"
(as long as it shows something from the Marianne Design range)

I was delighted to be invited to be on this Design Team for the next 12 months - this month's challenge is sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts who if offering a fab prize!

My piece is on a deep edged 8x8 canvas which I have painted with a number of acrylic paints.  I obtained the texture by scraping the paint off with an old credit card.  I have used a Crafters Workshop stencil in the background.
The Marianne Design Tunis Bird Cage was die cut using silver metal sheet, which was then further run through my Cuttlebug and an embossing folder and then coloured with a mixture of black, midnight blue and timber green Stazon inks. 
The large bird on a branch Marianne Die was put through the Cuttlebug using grungepaper, this too was embossed further and then heat embossed with a mixture of claret but primarily balck embossing powder.  Further branches of the bird die was used to edge the canvas and fill out the bird cage. 

My flowers are Marianne's English Roses die and were made from a mixture of silver metal and old text - the metal was coloured in the same way as the cage.
I am looking forward to popping along to your blogs this coming month and hope you have enjoyed looking at my canvas!  Check out my fellow Marianne Design Divas inspiration here!

This is my second blog post for today - see below for my Make My Monday DT piece..............
