It is absolutely ages since I made a card for a specific challenge and as I treat myself to a few new Saturated Canary images yesterday, I thought I would make a card for the SC challenge blog ..
As soon as I saw this image it reminded me of myself .. about 8 years ago, when I was off on my year abroad to Italy! It is more reminscent of me on the way home to be honest as I had accumulated a lot of stuff whilst I was there and had to pay excess baggage to bring it all home!! Anyway here she is .. this is 'Pack Light' .. I made this with a student in mind, going off on her travels with this card reminding her she will be missed back home .. just like I did!
I saw a card on Krista's blog I think of this image and she had coloured the hair red. I thought it looked proper funky so I decided mine was going to have red hair too!! Isn't she fabulous! I spent ages colouring her in today and am so chuffed with how she turned out. With my ever growing collection of ProMarkers I am able to do better shading with several shades of the same colour and my Elegance Satin card from Joanna Sheen is a dream when it comes to blending!!
She is matted onto kraft, as is the Bo Bunny Welcome Home backing paper. The sentiment is LOTV and everything is distressed with some Walnut Staink Distress Ink. All finished off with some bling!
