RSD progressive Challenge Part 1

Hi again! The first of the month is when Team A of Rick St. Dennis' EDT post their inspiration projects for the Progressive Challenge on the Sparkle and Glitter blog. November 1 is the beginning of Part 1 where we can use any RSD image we want. For those who play along this month, you will receive the Part 2 image free. It's been a while since I coloured one of Rick's beautiful faces so this time I chose to play with Q of H which can be found in Rick's Zibbet shop.

I coloured Q (not the James Bond one) with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. She was then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted with black cardstock. Foam tape was used to adhere her to the background providing both dimension and a shadow around her.

The simple background began with a 6 x 8 piece of mixed media paper onto which I sprinkled Scarlet Brusho crystals. Water was then spritzed onto the crystals and the card was then tipped various ways to create drips. The skinny drips were created with the TH Spritzer tool by just squeezing the air using the bulb. Text was stamped with Red Geranium Archival ink and open circles with a Joggles background stamp and Jet Black Archival ink. Tiny sticker hearts were placed at intervals around the border and black pen lines drawn to connect them.

The  computer generated sentiment was printed on white cardstock, trimmed, and then matted with black cardstock. The two sections were glued flat to the background. Two Scribbly Hearts were die cut from black cardstock and added to the right side to balance Q. A metal crown charm was added to the top right corner and a fun Alice in Wonderland ticket was added to the bottom right corner. Black Big Brush pen was used to edge the background before it was matted with black cardstock.

Thanks for joining Q of H and me here today. When you get a minute, pop over to the Sparkle and Glitter blog to see what fabulous projects the rest of Team A have created for the start of our Progressive Challenge Part One.

Life is good; so is art.

AMAZING! This really is fabulous. I love the image, she's so beautifully coloured. And I think the background is wonderful with the little tiny hearts on the border. Wonderful sentiment too. xxx
