Bein' Krafty! Anything Goes at OSAAT

It' time for an Anything Goes challenge at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT)! This week I got work with one of the images from the Three Faces of Eve set by Stitchy Stamps.

I printed the image onto Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock, and colored it with colored pencils. This is pretty time-consuming, but I do love the results. I sprayed it with a matte coating to "pop" the colors. I printed the sentiment (TLC Creations) in orange, but it was too light so I reprinted it in brown, giving it a cool shadow effect. I cut it out with an a•muse studio die.

For the background, I embossed a two-toned Core'Dinations cardstock with a Fiskars Texture plate, and sanded it to reveal both colors. For the corners, I used a sort of "faux marble" technique. I heat-embossed chipboard corners in white and then clear, and then dabbed them with Antique Linen distress ink to get them a "bone" look.

I finished the card with a ribbon from The Kraft Outlet, an orange feather, and some copper liquid pearls.

Here's another view, that shows that white piece behind the image:
