Paper Crafting Journey DT card, Anythign Goes

Well its that time again, another Challenge over at Paper Crafting Journey. I must admit it was really hard to choose an image from The Paper Shelter, as they provided us with some absolute stunners! The prize this week is a $20 gift certificate for Paper Shelter images, and they have some Wowzers.
I chose the Rapunzel image for mine, as I had an idea, and something I wanted to use.......
The Paper Shelter offered us coloured images, digi stamps, and backing papers to work with, so if your "no good" at colouring, you still have some nice images to use, which is always a bonus!!
I am reasonable at colouring, mind you I wasn't at school, and I got my Promarkers out and coloured Rapunzel in. I used the Lattice Rectangle Die from Spell Binders, and when I was colouring the wall in I knew exactly what I was going to use.... the other half of Hubby's Lager can!. I had embossed and coloured it a few weeks ago, I was just waiting for the right card to come along!
I used copper and Gold Tim Holtz alcohol inks on the can, and embossed it with the Funky Poinsettia embossing folder by Craft Concepts.
I wanted the backing paper to form the sky behind the tower, and mounted the can with some Silicon glue. Then it was a simple matter to mount Rapunzel in front of the can, and all that remained was to Bling the backing paper a bit, with some Blue Glitter, and some tiny gems. The bow along the top is part of the design by The Paper Shelter.
I do like this image, and suspect a lot of others do too!  You can get it by clicking on the Link, and dont forget to link your creations for Anything Goes over at Paper Crafting Journey for the chance to win the $20 gift certificate.
