TAKE THE WORLD ... {Art by Miran Challenge 10}

{Guest DT Project for Art by Miran's Challenge 10}
  
Art by Miran is launching their 10th challenge today. All their challenges are always ANYTHING GOES as long as your project has a hand coloured image. So hop over here to have a look at their seventh challenge.

Also visit Mi Ran's Showcase blog {Art by Miran} here, for some more inspiration.

I have used this cute girl called  TRAVELLING TRACY created by the talented Mi Ran.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.   You can purchase TRAVELLING TRACY  here.

The image has been coloured with Copics. The brads and design papers are from my stash.  The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The embellishments has been created with various size folded squares.  See tutorial below.

Here is the tutorial for the folded square Embellishments:
