For the love of it, and my dt piece for bingo at anything goes challenge

Hey there,
Well what a week!! Crafting has been fairly non existent but here is a piece to combine my bingo dt piece  for anything goes and all the challenges I love...so here she is:


I have so wanted to do a piece on a bit like all the fab chunky atcs around and so that is where this started,then I wanted to include all the things I love and follow the bingo board over at anything goes to use this as my dt piece...so hop across to anything goes to see all the fab dt pieces and welcome some new members to our design team....the bingo board for the challenge is below...

 I used make your own flowers, my choice(distress) and bling

Now onto the details:
Well there is so much to detail , I will just add some trace highlights....the block was coloured and all pieces added using distress inks, bling in the form of the fab Tim's idea-ology and stamps from Wendy Vecchi, Artistic Stamper and Tim Holtz.
I love all things in the distress range...just love them!!!does it show!??
I coloured the wooden hearts with DI and added a butterfly to one and love and some wings to the other, which were embossed using fine detail powder.


I made some hearts using a fab technique from Tim's twelve tags of Christmas here and love these.

The sides are covered in Tim paper from crowded attic paper stash , coloured with DI and perfect pearls and then embossed.

Most of the embellies are idea-ology and some are stash...the flower is handmade and the flourishes Tim die cuts coloured with DI.
The feet are wooden beads coloured using DI and the top knob is a fab idea-ology one....I have stroked these for a longtime before daring to open them!!!!
I am chuffed with how this has turned out....let me know what you think!!!
Make sure you hop across and join in the bingo fun!!!! at anything goes challenges
For all you crafty goodies hop over to Lynne's at craft den for fab goodies and great service!!!

  14. Beautiful piece and so right to keep the same colour tone - really pulls it together. See, if it was me I would have used more colours and then made a mess but tone on tone is perfect.
