Charmaine Flannery - Absynth

Here is a card I have made which I think would be suitable for a teenager as they can be very difficult cards to make for.  I have used a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Charmaine Flannery called "Absynth".  It is available as a digital stamp.

I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens.  It's amazing to think that the green is only two shades of green (8240 and 8260).  I have inked around the edge of the image with Tim Holtz's Old Paper and Crushed Olive distress inks.  The backing papers are from my Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD.  Along the edge of the plain green paper I have used my Tim Holtz ruler and punched through holes.  I've then used my red Promarker with a fine nib to add the faux stitching.

I have finished the card off with some stars cut from a Debbi Moore magazine paper, buttons, twine bow, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiments and two musical charms which I have had for ages and ages.
