Crafty Ann's Challenge #58 - 3 February 2012

Another fortnight has flown by and it's time to see what Crafty Ann is challenging us to this time.  She has gone for "love is in the air".
For my card I decided to make a card for a man and I have used Crafty Ann's red polished stone backing paper, brown abstract backing paper, violin/music digital stamp, embossed hearts backing paper (for the paper rosettes) and ticket sentiment - wow that's a lot of items used but I think they work well together.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and put Glossy Accents over the roses to make them stand out.  I then tore around the image with my X-cut tearing ruler.  Then I distressed with Tim Holtz's Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress ink pads.  All the papers used have chalk ink pads around the edges to eradicate the white edges which I hate to see.  I have used my new Tim Holtz rosettes die and again I have distressed the edges with Vintage Photo.  The card is then finished off with a heart charm, violin charm, button, gems and ribbon.
