Little Indian Betty
and Pilgrim Corinne
I missed out on last months challenge because I was working away, so I had to purchase these 2 image from SBS in order to take part this month. Find the challenge here............
and the digis here..............
I absolutely adore these images, and even though we do not celebrate thanksgiving I simply had to have them!!
So starting with Little Indian Betty (she reminds me of Disney's Pocahontas), you had to use feathers for this particular challenge, so I coloured in some white feathers I purchased from Boyes, using promarkers (and a pink copic) to tie in with the colours I used in the digi stamp. I also used some white fringing, again from Boyes. The image is printed on Neenah Solar White card and matted on some DCWV mulberry paper to match the colour of the pattern in the backing paper. The backing paper is a Christmas paper (I think it was a free one with a magazine) and I finished the card off with some cosmic shimmer pearlescent pva (which lets you create your own pearls in whatever size you want depending on how much of the pva you squeeze out), and a little white ribbon bow in her hair. SIMPLES!!
Here is a close up of the coloured image
Now on to Pilgrim Corinne
She is coloured with Promarkers in an autumnal theme, as this was what was required by the challenge. (I have also entered her into the current challenge on this promarker facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/157608874367734/ run by Donna Jerrett) Again the image has been printed on to Neenah Solar White card, and matted on American Crafts Earth Tones card in dark brown. The card blank has been layered with a Core'dinations 6x6 embossed paper with a leaf pattern, and I have sanded it back to reveal the white core for a little interest. I have used a gorgeous ribbon with maple leaf pattern that I received in my SBS secret pumpkin swap from Corinne (who this stamp is named after and inspired the design). Embellishments used are some buttons from Hobby craft in colours to compliment the image, some more cosmic shimmer pearlescent pva and finally a rub on sentiment to finish it all off. Another simple, yet effective card, and here is a close up of the coloured image.
Thanks again for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment.
Happy Thanksgiving for when it comes around!!
Bye for now xxx
