Craft Us Crazy Challenge

Hello ;o)  
This post is a little late due to the
 Craft Us Crazy Challenge
running a bit late due to some power outage problemss - however, challenge 36 will be up and running very soon.  Anyway, onto the challenge;

Challenge #36
January 31 - February 13

Use your Cutting Machine and/or Favorite Technique

I have used my favourite techniques of distressing with ink and also watercolouring with distress inks;

I used two stamps from Kanban and stamped them in Brushed corduroy distress ink and then heat embossed with a holographic powder to give it a little sparkle.  I then used the same ink and lightly water coloured the image.  The papers I have used are from Papermania and they are inked around the edges with Brushed Corduroy ink to tie it all together.  I cut the image out with a nestie and layered it up on the papers.  The little clock charm is from Creative Expressions and the little foliage brad on the big bloomers is from the Idea-ology foliage range.  I added the beautiful thick and stripy ribbon and a couple of stick pins.  To finish I did the inside of the card to march (actually if I'm honest I did the inside of the card first which is what I always do LOL)  This is an 8 x 8 card and I have to say I was quite pleased with this one.  What do you think?
Don't forget to enter the Craft Us Crazy challenge (which will be up real soon I promise ;o))
