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.
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.
I am so excited to see that Tiddly Inks and Make It Crafty are coming out with a joint release on July 14th. I have made one card using images from both companies but cannot wait to try out these new ones. They are coming out with Victorian and Steampunk images. This should be so much fun! You can get sneak peeks here.
I work as a programmer but love to stamp as much as possible. My mother and I started a company that makes support cards for women with breast cancer. We wanted to make cards that would help family and friends provide support when they didn't really know what to say. The majority of the cards I make get donated to women diagnosed with breast cancer. The loves of my life are my dog and 2 cats (plus the stray I feed).
