This one I have saved for the other challenge blog that goes live today - namely the Alphabet Challenge Blog!
It's the very lovely Jan's turn to choose our theme and she has chosen...
K for Keys!
I can imagine lot's of possibilities for this one (and I've just thought of piano keys!)
Here's what I did:
The image I've used is an oldie by Sugar Nellie called Life Is A Journey - perfect for a 21st birthday card! I coloured her with the following... copics: skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair: E49,31,09,07. Clothes: E39,37,35. Mother of pearl acrylic paint was used on the background, antiqued bronze Distress Paint was used on the frame, Bronze Viva pearl pen on the dots and a gold pen for the fixings. I messed up around her eyes, the actual image isn't as big as it's shown here so it doesn't look quite that bad :/
The papers are Glitz, Pretty In Pink. I used a Tim Holtz Alterations "Hardware Fndings" die to cut out the key. Other elements are Make It Crafty gears galore and Stampin' Up! hodgepodge hardware and the whole lot were frantaged to within an inch of their lives with gold frantage powder (I've put it away now cos I had some visitors arrive mid frantaging and they went home looking considerably goldier!). The 21 was die cut using memory box dies and the pearls, ribbon and jewellery findings are from my stash.
The inside is somewhat plainer than the front but more or less matches it with a Melissa Frances keyhole thingy (painted with distress paint) and another frantaged buckle.
So there you go, with my two cards for today (check below for the other one) - I'm off for a lie down! So while I'm doing that, you could take a peek at what the rest of the DT have done over at the Alphabet Challenge Blog!
