I had meant to get this posted yesterday - I uploaded my pictures to a draft post with the intention of taking 5 minutes during the day at work to write it up, but it was a hectic day, unusually so for a Friday, and didn't get it done and my shoulders were in so much pain by the evening (a lot of computer work plays havoc with my shoulders) that I couldn't face putting the computer on at home, so here I am writing it up as I watch the F1 qualifying! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this sort of thing won't bother me for too much longer as I'm going for my first injection into my shoulder on the 15th.
We have a new challenge up at PunkYouGirl and our fab sponsor for this month is Stitchy Bear Designs!
So in order to win the fab prize of $10 to spend in their store all you have to do is make something that fulfills the theme of...
There are so many ways to go with that challenge so I'm looking forward to seeing all the entries this month - but remember to keep them dark!
Here's what I did...
The gorgeous image was supplied by our fab sponsor Stitchy Bear from Delicious Doodles and she is called Dark Valentine. I coloured her with the following Copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Clothes: R39,37,29. Rose: 100,C10,8,6,3,YG17,13,93. The wonderful shading by Teri has left this image so easy to colour, I didn't even touch her hair!
I decided to raid my 12x12 papers this time instead of my 6x6 pads and picked out a sheet of Basic Greys Winterberry paper from their Wassail range. I made some flowers out of my fab black lace and added some black and red beads to the centres. I found some black glittery feathers in my stash and added them to the card too. I placed a few red Swarovski's around the image, which was die-cut with a Spellbinders Oval die and mounted on a Scalloped oval die-cut.
The inside has the same papers and another piece of the lace with space for a sentiment. I left it blank so it can be used for any occasion.
I do hope you can join us at PunkYouGirl for this month's challenge, pop over to see the rest of Team 1's fab makes and remember to check out Team 2's in the midway reminder!
