Rhedd & Rosie's DT - Anything goes and some exciting news!

Good morning everyone!

Before I show you my Rhedd and Rosie's DT piece for this fortnight, I have something really exciting to announce!

Sandie, our intrepid leader over at Rhedd and Rosie's, is starting a new altered art challenge blog called "Rhedd's Creative Spirit", and she has asked me to be on the design team!

This will be an "anything goes" altered art challenge that runs monthly and awards some really awesome prizes! I for one am super excited to be a part of this, and I hope you'll all come and play along! The first challenge goes live on the 1st of Feb, so watch this space!

But in the meantime, you can play along with Rhedd and Rosie's challenge this fortnight, which is Anything Goes! So again, No excuse for not coming to play!

The prize this time is a $10 voucher for Stichy Bear's digi Outlet, and they gave us some fab images to play with! I chose the image "new jeans", and this is what I came up with:

I used Prima papers (mounted on ivory pearlescent card), and went to town with my distressing tool and my white gel pen to add faux stitching. The flowers are from WOC and the seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl. Lace and pearls from my stash, and of course the obligatory Stickles and my new love, liquid pearls.

And now it's your turn, but first, you must go see what my fellow teamies have been up to, because they're such an incredibly talented bunch!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Incy Wincy - ribbon and pearls
The ribbon Girl - anything goes
Craft-Dee BowZ - Anything goes with a handmade bow

Have a fabulous day!
