The Power of Three...

Time for a new challenge at 
- this one called 
"The Power of Three"
(must use three of something)  
I chose to use this fun image from Milk Coffee called "Madeline with a Retro Outfit"  It screamed 70's to me - pink and lime green!  This DP was definitely fitting my brain's concept and I chose my Copics to match.  Two images were printed - colored with Copics, fancy cut the parts I needed and sculpted them from the back.  The dimension is supported with foam tape and layered - you can see the layers below 

Now, starting with the pink base card, I punched three holes down the right side and then layered the darker pink panel to the inside of the front of the card so it would show thru the holes.  I added three Candi that had been colored with matching Copics to the center of each circle.  The tag was inserted under the top Candi.  The Design Paper was cut to fit the front on either side for the punched circles.  These panels were sponged with Distress Inks and faux stitching was stamped down the left edge.      Final embellishment was added using Duo Glue in a "Fine Liner Calligraphy Pen" - and then once dry and tacky, I applied the foil to the jewelry and glasses.
I used the left over DP and scraps to decorate the inside - see right photo below.

You can see the inspiration the Craft Your Passion DT's have to offer (HERE) and hopefully you will join in the challenge for a chance at a great prize!
