Hi all, well after the last challenge the other week at delicious doodles and enjoying it so much, and being spotlighted on there for the card I did, I am now having a go of the NEW Challenge that is running
The challenge this week at Delicious Doodles
So this time it is something for the boys, at first I struggled to come up with something but after a while of thinking of what images I could use and designing in my head, I decided to go for a Pirate Theme card for the challenge and here it is
Arrrrrr!!! Jim Lad
The images I chose are Pirate Polly and the Treasure Map, I also decided to use the Rose & Thistle Papers.
I took the images I wanted to use and printed them off along with the backing papers and the sentiments, once this was all printed I started to colour in Pirate Polly with my promarkers. I used Magenta on her hat and trousers Purple, Amethyst and Warm Grey 3 on the underside of her wrap around, Berry Red Poppy and Warm Grey 3 on the outer layer of her wrap around, Tulip Yellow and Gold on the belt, Warm grey 1 and 3 on her boots, Azure and Sky Blue on her top, Emerald for the eyes, Cerise for the lips,Blush Putty and Oatmeal for the skin and for her hair I used Cocoa and Burnt Umber.
Now Pirate Polly was all done, I cut her out and the treasure map firstly i crumpled up the treasure map and then used Tim Holtz Tea Stain Distress Ink and the same on the sentiments once I had cut them out.
Now to put it all together I firstly got a blank 8x8 card and some black glitter card measured it to the right size and glued it into position, I then cut the first layer of backing paper to the size I required and again glued this down, and the same with the top layer of backing paper.
I then stuck 3d foam pads to the map and stuck that into position after playing around for a while of where to put it, I did the same thing with Pirate Polly used 3d foam pads and stuck her into place, After I put the bottom sentiment into place again using 3d foam pads and the same with the top sentiment.
To finish the card off I stuck some diamante's in the corners of the backing paper and in the corners of the top sentiment
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges also
