Craft Your Passion #122 Anything Goes

Its time for my first challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges.  That is pretty exciting in itself, but what is even more exciting is that the challenge is anything goes!  What is more fun that that!?  We were also given the opportunity to use some digital images - mine is called "Kutie Kim Roller Girl" from one of this week's sponsors, Sassy Studio Designs.  This is what I came up with:

Colouring people is definitely not one of my strong suits, so getting this for my very first image was a little daunting, but I think I did ok.  I coloured the image first, then trimmed it out and slightly inked the edges with black once I cut it out. I kept the papers kind of monotone to ensure the image stood out.  The flower I had made out of white poster paper and die cut circles, and I sprayed and inked them to coordinate.  The gems I had in my stash and I thought they looked perfect as flower centers. 

I kept the inside without sentiment so I can add one once I decide to use it.  I also added some leftover scraps to dress it up.

Don't you want to join in the fun?  Create your project and add it to the inlinkz at Craft Your Passion  by August 12th so that you can be entered into the draw.  See the blog for details on prizes!
