Scrapbook Sisters Challenge 27 - Anything Goes

Wow, can you believe it's time for this weeks Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge already!!  This week the challenge is a nice easy one, because

Anything Goes

I chose to use one of the Kenny K images that I got a while ago but have only coloured once and some of the new Stella and Rose (I used 12x12 sheets but you can get the 6 x 6 pad here) and some tan coloured Bazzill which I thought worked well together.

I machine stiched each of the panels, and used a Martha Stewart Gothic Arch border punch to add a bit of detail, and tied some thin twine round the card.  I didn't have any flowers in the colours that I wanted so distressed some off white ones with Antique Linen and Barn Door distress inks then added a button tied with more of the twine.
I coloured the image with copics and then cut herout and then layered it up on top of a 3" circle that has been embossed using a Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder and then distressed the edges with more of the distress inks.  The ticket got the same treatment and I domed the centre as I stuck it on.  I wasn't sure where I was headed with this one when I started but I actually really love the result!!  Which is good as I have been lacking in mojo for the last week or so :-(  Since I took these photo's I have coloured the hearts in the sentiment in with a red copic pen and given her a glittery earring :-)

That's it from me for today, looking forward to seeing all of your creations
