Time of My Life - The Paper Shelter

Morning everyone I am back with my second DT post for The Paper Shelter.  I have used their latest image 'The Time of My Life'.  Ahhhhhhhhh memories of years gone by. I wonder how many times I have watched 'Dirty Dancing'? Bet you've seen it a few times too.

I have used the backing that comes with the image. Rather than cut it out to mount it I decided to remove the white from around the image on the jpeg file. I was then able to resize it and place it just where I wanted it and then printed onto Neenah card so that it was perfect for colouring. It's then mounted onto some blue satin card.

They are coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils. I cut the stars with an X-cut die from glittered card and finally added some bling. The sentiment is computer generated with a little distress ink added for effect.

I hope you will join in with our challenge this week which is 'Anything Goes'. You don't have to use a Paper shelter image as you can win 3 digi's of your choice, but if you do use one (and there are so many to choose from) you could win $20 to spend in the store.
Don't forget to check out the other DT cards for a little inspiration.

I am entering the following challenges :-
