Hi everyone, today I’m sharing with you this weeks challenge project for The Paper Shelter Design Team and this weeks theme is “Charming (Add a Charm)”. 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 “Rowena” onto alcohol marker friendly paper.
Next I die cut a rectangle shape around the image leaving room on the right hand side for a small sentiment and the metal charm on the left hand side. Now I can stamp my sentiment (from the Simon Says Stamp “Tiny Words” stamp set using black alcohol proof ink.
For colouring the image I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Classique alcohol markers:
For skin I used: a Classique marker in CR05, and Illustrator markers in TN1 and CR1;
For brown and gold colours I used: Illustrators in FS9, MB2, GB5, GB7, TN7 and EB7;
For coral reds I picked Illustrators in FS3, FS5, CR7, CR9 and CR11 with a dark shadow in brown (EB7);
My teal colours are Illustrators in BT1, BT4, BT6 and BT9;
My silver/grey tones are Illustrators in IG1, IG2, IG5 and IG8;
I coloured around the image using a Classique marker in PP05.
And after the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen and I added some Ranger Glossy Accents on the glass parts (to make them shiny) and let that dry.
The rest of the project is easy: I die cut a rectangle panel from teal coloured card stock one size smaller than my card base and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. Next I adhered my metal charm, added some twine (adhered on the back of the combined card panels using regular tape) and than I adhered this combination onto my white linen textured card base.
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!
