This week our sponsor is Squigglefly. They have scads of fabulous images, done by several different artists. So you can always find something to suit your needs. Good luck with the draw!
I decided to once again use a sketch and picked CLP Sketch #58:
I chose Squigglefly Cover Girl for my image this week. She just spoke to me. Don't ask me what she said, because I can't remember that either--aging brain again. But I know it was something nice or I never would have selected her. I printed her on MICBC and then colored her with Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
I wanted her to be the main focus of the card, so I picked neutral DP from the Basic Grey Little Black Dress collection, and distressed it with my Zutter Distrezz-It-All. And I used black Stampin' Up CS with my DP. Since the Cover Girl was nude, (gasp), I created a fancy bodice for her with some black floral lace. And then I did my usual die-cutting using: Memory Box Palace Oval Frame, Macarena Corner, Madeira Corner, and Typewriter Lower. (I didn't plan ahead to use dies from only one company--that's just the way it worked out.)
I also added some other embellies: chipboard dragonfly and fancy corner from Make It Crafty; Stampin' Up Vanilla Flower Trim; Maya Road Dress Form Clip; a black dress form button; some black beaded floral wire; ecru lace; and black mini pom trim. And that does it for me.
Do check out the wonderful creations by the rest of Team A this week. Such a great group of talented gals--I am sad to leave them. And, if you haven't gotten your subscription to Through The Craft Room Door magazine, why not? It's a great publication--chock-full of fabulous tutorials, free digital images, and design ideas. Well worth the small investment you would have to make. To check out the current Spring issue, just watch the video to the right of my blog post. Have a terrific Tuesday!
