Can you believe I'm on to my second challenge as a DT member on the Creative Card Crew challenge blog?!
And can you believe the Olympics are over?! A thoroughly enjoyable couple of weeks and I can't wait for the Paralympics! I'm looking forward to seeing the yummy Oscar Pistorious again anyway! lol! That's not the only reason I've loved the Olympics though. I think it's amazing what some people are able to do. I watched the women's mountain biking on Saturday and it's astonishing how fit they must be to be able to go non-stop, on that terrain, for an hour and a half - and still have the energy to lift the bike over their head at the end! Amazing! I can only imagine how astonishing the Paralympics are going to be!
Now, back to the challenge...
We're being sponsored this fortnight by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp!
They're offering a $20 gift voucher to the lucky winner!
And to win that fabby prize all you have to do is create something using...
Maps/Newsprint or Sheet music!
So I'm looking forward to seeing some gorgeous works of art this fortnight!
Here's what I did;
The image is by Kraftin Kimmie and she's called Alicia Strawberry Pirate. I coloured her with my promarkers (which are available at Simon Says Stamp): Skin; Sunkissed pink, Oatmeal, Blush, Pastel pink. Dress; Midnight blue, Petrol blue, Marine, Henna, Terracotta, Cinnamon, Mulberry, Fuchsia pink, Rose pink. Hair & Sword; Black, Warm grey 5,4,3. Skulls; Morning mist. And some clear stardust pen to finish.
The papers are DCWV, "Treasure Map" from the Once Upon A Time set, a Daisy D's paper and "The Spiders Web" by MME. I used a distressing tool around the map to get it well worn looking and used Walnut Distress ink around it to dirty it up (also available at SSS) The sentiment is computer generated and the font is "Black Adder".
The ribbon, charms, gems and metal corner are all from my stash. The image was cut out using a Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles die.
And the inside looks like this:
And thar's me carrd! I hope's ye be likin it. Arrr!
