Phizz and I had a conversation awhile back about Semana Santa (Santa Semana? I've seen it both ways) so its cool that she chose it as the theme. I love the hand drawn elements around the bottom & sides.

Q of F I luv, luv, luv the stitching on your page-how cool to leave all the ends hanging off!  Phizzy, the images you used are beautiful and look so great on the background (did you draw that??)

Yay, I'm glad you liked it and thanks for all the positive comments! 

Some of the black is embossed stamping (the swirls, the numbers) some of it is 7Gypsies rub-on (the straight and wavy lines) and some is just hand drawn marker (the little x's). 

The background is green acrylic painted over in places with Tim Holtz crackle paint in Broken China (which I had to try despite the expense).  I then sort of rubbed some brown ink into the cracks and where the two paints come together. 

The number panels I actually painted a yellowish color and stamped the number on with clear ink and embossed.  Then I covered the whole thing with both brown and yellow ink and ironed over the little panels to melt the embossing off (with a paper bag over it to soak up the embossing- like batik).  Lastly came my crooked-and-only-fit-for-art stitiching.

I love the swirly, stone-like background on Phizzy's page.

Thanks everyone! Semana Santa is an interesting week here. The box contains an image of some of the figures depicting the easter story which are carried throughout the streets of Sevilla during the week. The swirls and guy on the right are taken from a poster.
