I'm Not Goth!!

Good morning. I hope you're all recovered from the long holiday and that those of you in the UK haven't suffered too much damage from the horrendous winds that we've had? I'm not sure where this week has gone, but I suddenly realised yesterday that it was Thursday and that I'd not got a project done for Delicious Doodles -ooops!! Luckily for me, the kids were going out for tea and then onto the pantomime with their Grandma, which meant I had a bit of freetime to play with :D

This weeks challenge over at Delicious Doodles is New Beginnings, so we want to see projects that feature something new. It can be new stash, a new baby or even a new technique which should give you plenty of scope for joining us. Remember you don't have to use a Delicious Doodles image, but if you do you can enter yourself twice in the blue froggy! Plus you get the chance to be spotlighted on the challenge blog.

I decided that I'd use a the new image I'm Not Goth for my card, I hope you like what I've done with her!! I have to say both of my kids have eyeballed the card and asked if I can use her on cards for their friends!!!


I coloured the image with a combination of Promarkers and Prismacolor Pencils before fancy cutting out. The wings were stamped and heat embossed using the Rockstar stamps from Inkadinkadoo. I then mounted the wings and main image onto embossed grey cardstock, before adding Glossy Accents and Stickles.


The stars, skull & crossbone border and sentiment are all from the same stamp set. All of the elements have been heat embossed prior to being cut out and mounted onto the card using silicone glue to give some dimension.



Materials
Main Image - Delicious Doodles
Rock Star Stamps - Inkadinkadoo
Promarkers - Cardinal Red, Ruby, Cool Grey 1 -5
Prismacolor Pencils
