Hi All - bit late with this post as it has already gone live on the I LOVE PROMARKERS blog, but thats what happens when you work shifts I suppose -you have to be a bit flexible!
I made this card for my latest DT post - the new challenge is Paper Piecing and it is sponsored by Kenny K.. The image Ive used is called Retro Selfie
You can find her by clicking on the link. I think she is a great image as Vintage is very "in" right now and so is the Selfie - so to combine the two is a bit of genius!!
To make this card I printed and coloured the image with Promarkers (Listed below...) The paper I have used is all from my stash of October Afternoon - the flowers and the demin effect. I looked at a few designs using this and they were coloured like a dress with a belt but I never saw that -I always saw a separate top and shorts / skirt... What do you think?
I printed the image out the same size on to the demin effect paper and cut out the bits that I then pieced on to this image.
The film strip is a die from Tim Holtz which I cut from a really think matt black card which is lovely (Had to go through cutter a few times to cut right through...)
The ribbon is as always from my stash... I don't keep the reel so I never know where its from - I just have them all in colour co-ordinated jars! I also tie'd a small camera charm with thin black ribbon.
The greeting and Numbers are die cuts from the Memory Box and the yellow gems are from Hobbycraft.
