Twist: Anything Goes!

This week's the challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Anything Goes and/or Christmas. My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Karen, Vannessa, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You should check out their blogs to see their gorgeous artwork. 

Our August sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner three digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win!

Goth Fairy was reduced in PhotoElements, printed out with my laser printer onto Neenah cardstock, colored with Copic markers, then die-cut with one of the dies from the 5x7 Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). 

Plaid patterned paper from the old, but well loved (hoarded) Black Tie collection (Basic Grey) was die-cut with the next largest die from the 5x7 Card Creator Nestabilities die set. This was edged with Aged Mahogany Distress ink (Ranger) then matted with shimmery black cardstock. This was adhered to another sheet from the Black Tie collection, also edged with Aged Mahogany Distress ink, leaving the top part of the matted image panel free from adhesive. 

Dark red cardstock was die-cut with a Fancy Floral Lace Border die (Cottage Cutz) and adhered at the base of the image panel. Barbed Wire Fence border die (Die-namics) was used to die-cut flashing tape, which was adhered over the lace die-cut border.

My Tiny Attacher (Idea-ology) was used to secure the image panel/pocket to the tag front. Grey roses (Recollections?) were also attached to the tag front with the Tiny Attacher. 

Red cardstock was cut to size, then the top corners were punched with the Ticket and Tag Duo Corner punch (Tonic Studios). A hole was punched in the center. The tag front was adhered the red card. Silver Foil Corners (Stampendous) were added to the top corners of the tag front. "For You" from the Handwritten die set (Little B) was used to die-cut flashing tape. The sentiment was adhered to the tag. Sheer black ribbon was threaded through the hole in the tag. A hand charm was added to the tag with silver thread.
