Tiddly Inks Challenge #57 - Reel Me In

I made this card for the Tiddly Inks challenge this week which was to use a "Summer Movie" or "Scary Movie".  I chose Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.  Based on the previews it looks really good..and somewhat scary so I guess that will fit into both categories :)  I used Pirate Jane and tried to color her like Angelica from the movie.  She would be all dressed in black lol.  I colored her using Copics and found some map paper that I used for the background.  I used the banner that came with Jane and added the movie name to it.

Here is the cover of the movie that I used for my card.

Supplies Used:
Image: Pirate Jane by Tiddly Inks
Paper: Cryogen White
Background Paper:  Map paper from stash (not sure who it's by) and black patterned from Memory Box
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers
Embellishments: EK Success heart stickers

Mo's Challenge #90 - Vintage with Distressing and Lace

The challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil was really a challenge for me since I don't own any lace and Michael's didn't have much to choose from :)  Other than that, I also don't distress much or really know what a "Vintage" card looks like, so I am definitely at a disadvantage.  I decided to try anyway though, so here is my card.  I bought this image awhile ago and have been really wanting to use it.  I love seeing the little Irish dancers in their costumes.  I colored this girl using my Copics.  I thought the paper had a little of a vintage feel to it so I used that for my background and distressed the edges of that as well as my image.  I added the one lace border I could find at Michael's.

Supplies Used:
Image: Little Irish Dancer by Mo Manning
Paper:   Bella's Bestest Cream Paper (Stamping Bella)
Background Paper: Teal Damask K & Company
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers
Distress Ink: Tea Dye
Embellishments: Lace Border by Recollections
