Two Beauties and a Touch of Green ~ Craftitude Challenge # 60


We have a new challenge at Craftitude Challenges this fortnight and two amazing sponsors. Our themes this time are Anything Goes (always) or Add a Little Green (as a nod to St. Patrick's Day). Our two sponsors are Sassy Studio Designs and Aurora Wings...so hard to choose the images to play with when they are all gorgeous! From Sassy Studio Designs, I decided to play with St. Patrick's Day Sassy in honour of my one quarter Irish background. I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils and used a metallic gold jelly pen on her buckles. Then I fussy cut her and popped her up on foam tape. The foam on the beer is  a combination of  Icicle Stickles and white 3D fabric paint. The background paper was a scrap of green patterned paper edged with Mowed Lawn Distress ink, and layered over black and then green cardstock. The edges were doodled with a black pen and the layer of pp and black was wrapped with black twine to mimic the lacing in her corset. The shamrocks were cut with a Fiskars punch, smeared with Green Stickles, and then inked on the edges with Black Soot. March was printed from the computer and the 17 is stickers.


The image I chose to play with from Aurora Wings is called Water Lily Fairy. Again (and no surprise) I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut around the top. I matted the image with black cardstock and popped her up with foam tape. The background is another scrap of green matted with white and then black cardstock. The white layer was edged with Black Soot Distress ink. Once again, I doodled a border with black pen and punched three stars from the black cardstock. These were adhered over her head and tiny silver star beads were glued onto them with Glossy Accents.

Thanks so much for visiting today and for checking out my ATCs. I'm always appreciative of your company. If you get a chance, pop over to the Craftitude Challenges blog to check out the wonderful cards and ATCs by the rest of our talented DT.  We'd love to have you join us this fortnight for Anything Goes or Add a Little Green.

Life is good; so is art.
