The Paper Shelter Challenge #505

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing with you this weeks challenge project for The Paper Shelter Design Team and this weeks theme is “Girl Power”. You can find all the details for the current challenge here!

I started my project by printing this digital image by The Paper Shelter called “Rebel” onto alcohol marker friendly paper. I die cut around the image using the smallest die in the Kennedy Grace Creations “Scalloped Stitched Stacked Rectangle” die set.

And now the colouring fun can begin: today I’m using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, mostly Illustrators and some Classiques.

For skin I used: Classique marker in CR05, Illustrators in FS7, TN1 and TN2;

For hair I used: Illustrators in FS3, FS5, CR7, DR7 and EB8;

Teal: Classique GT05, Illustrators in BT3, BT6 and BT9;

Yellow: Illustrators in LY1 and GB4;

Green: Illustrators in GG1, GG3, YG3, YG1, GG5;

Brown: Illustrators in BG1, BG4, RB2, BG7 and BG9.

After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.

Now that the colouring is done I can work on the rest of my card design: I die cut a rectangle, two sizes smaller than my card base, from some matching teal design paper from my stash. Onto this panel I stamp my sentiment using one of the stamps in the Kennedy Grace Creations “Beautiful Booms - Sweet Rose” stamp set, using black ink.

I also die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from some matching olive green card stock and I adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto a white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish my card I now only have to adhere the coloured image on top also using liquid glue.

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

That is it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
