The ladies at Bah! Humbug! love to come up with fun challenges for us. They are always thrilled with the responses and surprised at how so many papercrafters tackle the even the most far out themes. I'll even forgive the whole CD/DVD thing, cuz the ladies at Humbug Hall are the greatest! This week's challenge is metallic, as in gold, silver, and other metals, precious and semi-precious. So, how about.......
Oh my Aunt Pitty Pat's pinafore!!! (How does that go, Ann?)
Yep, I went with a hot metallic theme, tho' I don't think it's the metallic papers that are hot here! The image is Kenny K's "Mistletoe" digi. I love these hot and spicy images and, believe me, I chose one of the milder flavors...... for now ;-)
The cardstocks are all metallic, even the red has a shimmer to it.
Mistletoe is colored with Copics on GP 110# cs. For her red outfit I used R22, R27 and R29. Shades of the C neutrals for the boots and stockings, and C00 for shading on the fur trim. Her skin is E0000 and E21. I forgot to keep track of the colors for her hair. I used a silver metallic gel pen for the buckles on the boots and belt.
Inside I placed another panel with the holly Cuttlebug embossing folder. The one on the front is pretty well hidden. The sentiment is computer generated and from the Print Shop Pro Publisher.
Yep, I am breaking out of my shell a bit. I love all the images I have and will be coloring until I'm 95 years old! And finding images like these will make that ride all the more fun! I hope you enjoyed this card and be sure to travel over to Bah! Humbug! for fabulous projects and inspiring ideas.
