She's Been Framed!

Well, here we are, again. Challenge time at Craft Your Passion. This week,we are challenging you to use crumpled paper on your project. This was my first time trying this technique, and I have to admit--It was really fun! Of course, I won't admit how much ink I had all over me by the time I was done creating my project! We'd love for you to get out your paper, crumple it up, create something fabulous with it, and then join us in our Challenge. Come on over to Craft Your Passion and link up your new crumpled paper project! Just a reminder of the standard rules--No backlinking of projects, please. Your creation must be new, created on or after the challenge date, and before the challenge ends. Any backlinked projects will not be in the prize drawing. You don't want to miss out on your chance to win images of your choice from CocoDingo and Lauretta's Digital Stamps, so please please please don't backlink. We really don't like to have to exclude anyone from winning.

Now that the formalities are out of the way, here is my project for this week's crumpled paper challenge.

I've used an image by Lauretta's Digital Stamps, and created a frame with chipboard. I'm hanging this on the wall in my scraproom. (I plan to create another later, for use on another project!) The image is colored with Promarkers then cut out and mounted on crumpled paper that I distressed with ink. I used foam mounting tape to mount the image to the crumpled paper, to give it a 3D effect. The flower at the bottom is from Recollections. I used red stickles to highlight the flower and add sparkle and bling.

I am entering this frame in the following challenges:
