Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Challenge blog is hosting a Guns N' Roses challenge this week, where you're supposed to use metal and flowers together. That's so my thang, that I had to play along with them.
Here's my card!
That's Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Priscilla, who is a bookworm. She likes all literature, but also likes a bit of Gothic and Horror every now and then. In keeping with her taste in books, I decided to make her hair have periwinkle highlights to match her hair bows and shirt.
Anyway, she was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers, which I'll list below. There's a bit of clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen on her shoes because why the heck not?
I based my design on this sketch from The Cupboard Trilogy Challenges.
I had cut the cardstock into a rectangle as above, but it was kind of plain, so I diecut periwinkle vellum using one of the dies from Spellbinders' Decorative Labels 8. It made me much happier. The patterned papers are from BoBunny's Isabella 6x6 pad. All edges were sponged with Black Soot Distress ink to eradicate those nasty white edges that I loathe.
Lace was stapled under the dotted patterned paper using Tonic's Tiny Attacher. I love that thing! That was my first touch of metal.
The white flowers were old, ancient Making Memories flowers which were colored with my B60 marker. I added a skull brad (Recollections) to the center, which became my second bit o' metal. The other flowers are equally old Prima flowers. The blue ones were once white and were colored with my B63 marker. I found cool pewtery (new word) metal roses on clearance at Michael's yesterday and added those to the mix. I added some silver pearls (Recollections) to add some shiny elements to appeal to my inner magpie.
I diecut silver Inksssentials Metal Foil Tape sheets using the Delicate Chain die by Memory Box and adhered it to the strip of patterned paper that hold the sentiment die cuts. The sentiment is a foil sticker from Stampendous. I added some tiny black Prima flowers to either side of the sentiment piece and added silver pearls to finish the card.
