Well, here I am making a card in an odd size again, but I feel that I need to because of the sheer size of the stamp that I chose to use. Do you love her? I love her! And I love how she turned out! This is "Two Barrettes" from Stampotique. The artists that created the stamp image are Penney Torrente a husband and wife team, and I love the images they make!! And Carol at Stamptique is soo nice. Ok, so I've been coloring these goth girls for a few days now and finally had time to put a card together. I wanted her clothes to be bright so I pulled out my copics and found some colors I loved (which colors do I not love??). I don't know why but I normally color my images before I pick out papers, strange, huh? I can't help it. So, once she was colored I went on a search in my stockpile and found a slab that I had bought at Michael's. I can't remember what slab it was, but it was certainly something to do with teens! I used a sheet that had colors similar to what I had colored. I had to find a quote or word that I thought would fit in with my goth girl and chose the "Seriously" from Stampin' Up!'s Seriously Sassy. I can picture her stamping her foot and saying in a bit of snotty tone (or a teen tone!) "seriously?" I chose to emboss the word to make it pop. I used my paper crimper with Stampin' Up! Sahara Sand cardstock to use as a background mat. I also decided to use some orange acrylic paint topped off with some black glitter paint to create a little shimmer. I love my homemade dew drops! Thanks to a post on splitcoaststampers.com that lead me to the Frugal Crafter's blog on how to make your own dew drops with a hot glue gun. I then colored my dew drops with the same copic marker that I used to color "Two Barrettes" skirt. Of course I had to use some staples on a goth card! Well, maybe I didn't have to, but I really wanted to! I just love how she turned out and I hope that you do as well.
