Fun With ATC's Faces challenge
This fortnight over at Fun With ATC's our challenge is faces stop on by to see what the rest of the awesome DT have been up to and of course I would love for you to join us.
I kind of knew what I wanted to do straight away with this challenge, I love this skull stamp from Paper Artsy but the face I wanted to go with to start with was from a painting by Mark Ryden called Rose but I could not get her face to fit the skull so I had a quick think and this popped up. Personally I don't think she has ever looked so good ;)
I started by cutting my ATC from some mount board with my Tim Holtz die, I stamped the skull and heat embossed with black powder, the skull and red back ground were coloured by using old paper and red berries distress ink pads. I dabbed them on to my craft mat added a little spray of water and painted the areas. Thanks to Paul and my fellow DT member Butterfly for reminding me they can be used this way. You can get so many different shades/intensity of colour from the one ink pad just by adding more or less water.
After It was coloured I tore the image of the Queen in half, fussy cut around her face (image was from the net and sized to fit) and stuck her down, I made a mask for the skull and stamped the edge in black with a Tim Holtz stamp. I finished by colouring behind the Queen in black and then adding the two jems, Well it is the queen ;)
Again thank you for stopping by and hopefully I will see you over at Fun With ATC's
I would like to enter this into a couple of challenges.
Over at Smudgy Antics their challenge is Time Stands Still.. Ok I may be stretching but I am thinking that this is what happens when time stands still, you occupy all states of being ;)
At Quirky Crafts Challenges they are having a Come To The Darkside challenge, no cute images.
The Octapode Factory are having a Skulls or skellies challenge.
Poisoned Peas Please are having a Walking dead theme.I am sure the queen must be dead but some how she is still walking around ;)
The Artistic Stamper has an Anything Goes challenge this month, A great blog and a shop with some amazing stamps to choose from.
