So Glam ~ Rick St. Dennis Progressive Challenge

Here I am with my second post for the new year and it's still the morning of the first :) Happy New Year in case I missed you with my first post. We have a new Progressive Challenge on the Sparkle and Glitter blog and it's Team A's turn to post their creations. I decided to celebrate New Year's in style with the lovely and oh-so-glamourous Helene Hartz, one of Rick St. Dennis' fabulous images from his Zibbet shop.

I coloured Helene with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, adding a little metallic gel pen for the silver bits. She was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted with black cardstock. She was also popped up on foam to add dimension and create a shadow behind her.

The background began as a 6 x 8 inch rectangle of purple cardstock.Text stamping and a stylized star were added with Deep Purple Archival ink.Platinum ink was used to stamp the zigzagstitching. Silver embossing paste was scraped through the Dylusions Bubbles stencil to add pattern, texture, and shine in various places. Pink zigzag washi tape was applied to white cardstock and then adhered in 5 places. Tiny star sequins glued to the end of each added interest and more shine. The washi tape segments were then outlined with black pen to help them pop. Silver sparkly paper was die cut into stars which were then glued around Helene.

The sentiment from Create with TLC was fussy cut close to the words and popped up on foam tape. Tiny rhinestones were adhered to some of the letters for guessed it...more sparkle. Black Big Brush pen was used to edge the outside of the background before a black mat was added to frame the piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Helene and I appreciate your spending your time with us. To see other fabulous DT creations, be sure to pop by the Sparkle and Glitter blog. We would love it if you joined in the fun. After all, it's Anything Goes using a Rick St. Dennis image.

Life is good; so is art.
