TEW Challenge #58 - Let 'er rip!

Hi everyone! Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians! And  a Happy b-day to my husband! And Happy new challenge and freebie image to all The East Wind fans:) It's a happening day! The new challenge theme on The East Wind Challenge Blog is Let 'er rip! so we want to see torn edges or torn papers somewhere on your project. Easy peasy! Because it's the first challenge of the month, all of the DT have used the new freebie which comes in the newsletter to all subscribers. This little sweetie is called Teen Lucy Ukupunk and I love her to bits!

I coloured Lucy with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and fussy cut her leaving a narrow white border around the image. She was then matted with black cardstock, trimmed out, and popped up on foam tape.

The background, a 6 x 8 inch rectangle of mixed media paper, was spritzed with Hag's Wart Orange, Hottie Patottie Hot Pink, and Yellow Rose of Texas Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays plus a little water. A music note was stamped in several places using Magenta Hue Archival Ink and then outlined with black pen. Splatter dots were stamped using Jet Black Archival Ink. Two sizes of black die cut hearts were adhered around the page. To keep with the torn papers theme, Vintage music paper was torn into three sections and layered across the bottom to give Lucy a place to stand. These three pieces were also outlined with black pen.

The sentiment was printed onto white cardstock and the words were cut out individually. They were then matted with black cardstock and popped up on foam tape. A treble clef brad was added to the top right corner to further the music theme. Instead of cutting straight edges for the black cardstock mat which was used to frame the page, the edges were torn to follow the Let 'er rip theme.

Thanks for popping by today. To see the other wonderful DT projects created with this sweet July newsletter image, be sure and stop by The East Wind blog. We would love to have you play along with us. And if you aren't already a subscriber to The East Wind newsletter, you can sign up for that while you are visiting the blog.

Life is good; so is art.

Love everything about your project. The image is "so me" as I love music.I've always wanted to learn how to play guitar but sadly I have very short fingers and small hands. Super color combo and your coloring skills are amazing.
