Visible Image Challenge May 2014

Over at the Visible Image Challenge this month the topic is "anything goes".  It's two months until our 23rd wedding anniversary but I thought I'd get ahead and get my card made.  As it's not being posted I could obviously "go to town" with embellishments!!!

For my card I decided to use a Visible Image sentiment called "The One" as one of the main focal points of the card.  I love the words.
For my card I have used a brown plaid, from the Bearly Mine Design "Just Plaids" paper set.  I have also used a freebie burlap paper from Bearly Mine Designs as a backing paper and to stamp the sentiment onto.  I have distressed around the backing papers with Tim Holtz's Rusty Hinge distress ink.

An image I have used on the card is by Delicious Doodles and is called "Steampunk Heart" which I have coloured with my Promarkers and fussy cut around.

I have used the number and cogs die from the Visible Image stamp set called "Clock stamp - time after time" around the edge of the main backing paper with my Rusty Hinge distress ink.  I have stamped the pocket watch image from the same stamp set with black Versafine and fussy cut.

I have finished the card off with some X-cut die-cut cogs, dotty ribbon, Tim Holtz die-cut rosettes with buttons and twine in the centre, sentiment off the computer and some wooden heart embellishments which were coloured with my Rusty Hinge distress ink.
