I was at the Odyssey in Belfast last night to see the comedian Michael McIntyre and almost laughed my leg off! He is just so funny! And I was amazed at how much was ad-libbed - my mum and sister had been at it the night before so we were able to compare nights and I think last night was funnier!
It was a long time coming though as I bought the tickets over a year ago and gave them to my family as Christmas presents - so I wished them all a Happy Christmas as we were leaving! We did get some funny looks!
Anyway, I missed the last Alphabet Challenge due to my injuries but I was determined not to miss another so I finally got back to my craft desk to make a card - it was slow moving but I got it done.
Our new challenge for the next fortnight was chosen by the fabulous Caz and she chose...
S for Skeletons, Spiders - anything Spooky!
And here's what I did:
The fabby image is from Stitchy Bear Stamps called "Chains of Love" and I coloured her with the following Copics: Skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Dress & Hair;110,C9,7,6,YG07,05. Background;E43,41,40,C4,2. And a wee bit of black Prisma pencil.
The papers are from 3 different makes - Stampin' Up! for the background one, the dotty one is from Doodlebug Designs and the other one is My Minds Eye; The Spider's Web. The web ribbon and green ribbon are from my stash. The sentiment is a Waltzing Mouse stamp from the Halloween Party set. I used a Viva pearl pen in anthracite to do the dots around the image, in the corner and on the spider. I think I went a bit overboard around the image but it's a new toy so I got carried away! I'm impressed with these pens as I've tried different ones over the years but never really liked how they sagged a bit when they dried but these ones really kept their shape and shine. I'll have to get some more colours.
I cheated a bit as I hadn't got any card in the right shade of green for the base card so I used white card and coloured around the edges with my YG07 copic pen.
The inside uses the same papers and sentiment set and a smaller version of the Curved Rectangle Mega Nestie that I used on the front.
So, come and join us over at the Alphabet Challenge Blog and scare the living daylights out of us!
