Let Your Dreams Take Flight

It's time for another Anything Goes Challenge today here at  7Kids
I am especially excited because we decided to showcase some new stamps and dies! The Design Team members were asked to choose something new that was featured at the Winter CHA. I just fell in love with this new Steam Punk Cycle Marcie from LaLa Land.

First, I inked some water color paper with  Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass Ranger Distress inks, to make the background look like the sky.
I used watercolor paper because I wanted to use my Ranger Distress Markers. I just love these markers because they react with water and you can do some fun shading techniques with them. I stamped the image with black Archival Ink. This ink works best for watercoloring. And then the fun began....coloring!!!
LaLa Land also has this fun Steam Punk die that matches the stamp! After I cut it out, I rubbed it on my Versamark Ink pad and then heat embossed it with Ranger Super Fine Gold embossing powder. The larger gears were made with the Time Piece Die-Namics from My Favorite Things. 
Of course I had to add some clouds (Lil Inker)!!! 

Hope you have enjoyed my cute LaLaLand card!

Please join the fun with the current "Anything Goes" challenge!
