This week at My Heart Pieces the challenge is Halloween! As we all dress up at Halloween I thought I'd use Priyanka's "Jungle Queen" image for this challenge. I think I might make myself a costume along these lines! Both these images were printed to 4x6" size onto white cardstock on my Laser Jet Printer.
This first card was coloured with my Prismacolor pencils. I find I am beginning to like these more and more... Once coloured I used the Spellbinders Labels 28 to cut it out. I matted her onto Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper and hand cut the mat. Then repeated the process onto black shiny packaging. I used a piece of felt and a black ink pad to dry rub some black along the edges for a more grungy look. I also added a gold hat charm that happen to fit her perfectly! I used a black Sharpie to colour in the hat.
The card is 5.5 x 8.5". I placed some Darice Steampunk Washi tape down the side of a 5.25 x 8.25" piece of Fanciful Floral paper (same line as above) then adhered the matted Jungle Queen. The ribbon is from Michaels and the Mini Gears are from Tim Holtz. I am liking this Steampunk thing!
Card #2 is more of a general card. I loved the idea of 'Jungle' and so tried to make her truly jungle-like. I coloured her in with my watercolour crayons and water pen then cut her out with Spellbinders Labels 20. This time I did not use the largest size so I was able to cut the appropriate mat out of Karen Foster 'Spots' paper. I edged both layers with a black marker.
This card is 4x8" made from an 8x8" piece of printed cardstock in my stash. I wrapped the front with 1.5" ribbon from Michaels then placed the matted queen on top. I found that one piece of vellum showed through too much so cut out a second one then secured them with the EK Success Fastenaters. The greeting is one from a set I've had for a while but not used! the Word Art Stamps v.1 by Autumn Leaves.
