This week's challenge is a sketch challenge with an "Anything Goes" subject theme. Here is the sketch for the challenge:
I chose a fabulously sexy stamp from Kenny K which I colored up with my ever-trusty Prismacolor Pencils. Then, I fussy-cut her out and paper-toled her into 4 layers. I found a very fun paper/embellishment pack from Little Yellow Bicycle that totally ROCKED this card. Unfortunately, they've discontinued this line (called Generation Z)...but I love the orange and blue color scheme coupled with grey and black...it all comes together to create a very edgy look.
Here's a detail-shot of my coloring--the camera just didn't pick up all the depth of her hair. It totally washed it out. *sigh*
So...see that little metal embellishment in the upper right corner of the card (in the top picture)? The sort of spiral-looking thing...do you even know what that is? Yes, it's something that actually served a purpose, not just a funky embelly. If you're old enough, you'll know EXACTLY what it is. If not, I'll post the answer at the very bottom of my post under my signature.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
- Hooked On Craft Challenges: #23 "Let's Celebrate"
- Simon Says Stamp: "Anything Goes"
- Paper Pretties: "Seeing Double" (I used 5 different designer papers)
Vikki Lee Vicious stamp - Kenny K
"Generation Z" line of paper/embellishments - Little Yellow Bicycle
Prismacolor colored pencils
The spiral thing is what we used to put in the center hole of 45 rpm records so that we could play them on our 33 rpm record players.
