Anyway im very very excited to share with you today my make for
 Vintage Elusions Cards and Crafts
Challenge 1
mixed media / anything goes

and here it is

I used a 6x4 pearlised card blank for the base and attatched the this the frame wich i had distressed with Tea Dye and Broken China distress inks from Tim holtz
I next added some small twigs that i actually cut off the honeysuckle tree in the garden ( well it is mixed media right lol ) and a little twine . Then i added a selection of sequins , gems and pearls from my stash to create a pile of treasure and a large stick on gem in the bottom right corner .
I used a selection of metalic promarkers , promarkers and gel pens to colour my " Jack Sparrow " image and popped on a couple of gems to give him a little bling and used glossy accents on his boots to give them a little depth ( difficult to see in the pic ) and uses sticky foam pads to attatch him to the card and frame !

i hope that you all like what i have created
