Young at Heart ~ CYP Challenge #204

We have a new challenge at Craft Your Passion this week: Young at Heart. We want to see projects made for the young or the young at heart. Our wonderful sponsor is Heather Ellis. I love the sweetness and innocence of her adorable images. They speak of a simpler time. This one is called Pure Innocence 013 and I coloured her up with my trusty Prismacolor pencils. Her eyes are tiny flat black pearls. I fussy cut her leaving a narrow white border around her so she would contrast more with the busy background. She was popped up on foam tape and asked to wait patiently while I made her a home.

The background is a piece of chevron paper from my stash which was matted with black. A scrap of black paper which looks like a child's printing on a chalkboard was cut with a Memory Box ticket die. The layer in between the two patterned papers was torn from a child's dictionary, inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink,  and matted with a torn piece of black cardstock. Two lengths of black twine were layered over the background before it was adhered to the white card base. Three threaded black buttons were glued to the left side of the card with Glossy Accents. A red heart was hand cut, embossed with dots, and inked around with Black Soot Distress ink before being popped up on foam dots. The lettering for "at" is stickers and two circles in the word young were coloured in red, both to draw attention to the word and to add another spot of red to the card. A simple scalloped border completed the card.

Thanks for popping by today. I love when you do that. If you get a minute, check out the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the cards from the rest of our creative DT. It's so fun that we all interpret Young/Young at Heart a little differently. Can't wait to see your take on it.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create ~ #62 Anything Goes
Glitter n Sparkle ~ #75 Anything Goes
ABC Challenge ~ G is for Girls

Life is good; so is art.
