This weeks challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot was a project featuring your favorite movie or TV show! At first I will admit that I kind of panicked about it but then it hit me...duh! I have this gorgeous stamp that I have had since childhood and never used it until I started crafting the past few years. I actually used this in my first ever ATC swap awhile back (meaning when I had time for things like ATC swaps, LOL!)
I also made this for a fellow Snow White fan and great friend that I had met on the Cricut mb but I am thinking with her busy schedule lately that she won't be coming by so I think I am safe posting this before she gets it!
The apple was welded on the shadow feature from A Childs Year. I wanted this cart so badly and I am ashamed to say this is my first time using it! Card base is black cardstock and the houndstooth (gosh I hope thats what its called) pp is from DCWV.
Here is a close up of my stamped image. Isn't she a beauty! Botox really never looked so good! LOL! I colored her in with my Prisma colored pencils and added a bit of Picket Fence Distress Stickles. It was my first time using them and I think that they are GORGEOUS! I will be using those again (and again and again!)
I had bought a big tub of chipboard on clearance at WM some time ago and have really not used it much. I recently did my first altering of chipboard and found it surprisingly easy so I think I will be using it more often now! Also new is the Crackle Paint by Ranger. I only bought 2 colors, Antique Linen and Picket Fence. I think as I come across them (on sale) that I will pick up more! For this piece I used Antique Linen and rubbed both Black Soot and Fired Brick Distress ink over it to enhance the crackles.
Now after about 5 tries at cutting this word with my Cricut using Grungepaper. I decided to give up! So I went to some trusty alpha stickers (from my ever favorite Mrs Grossman). They were adhesive backed fiber paper in a lovely burgundy color but I decided it still wasn't right. Well since my apple isn't red I thought the red Stickles would be perfect and I think it turned out great, and even better of course in person!
(I think I need to get more creative with also using alpha stickers as I have gobs of them!)
I finished the card off with the very very last piece of this netty like tulle that I stole off of a class project my son came home with (LOL!) and I think its pretty sweet!
The card measures just a tad smaller then a standard sized card! I hope that you like and see what my DT sisters did for their favorite show!!!
oh my gosh!!!!!!!!!! I was just looking at the brilliant projects posted at TCS for today and I realize the BIG mistake I made....I forgot to emboss my card! I have a CB project posted with NO embossing! For anyone that noticed or would not have without me bringing it up...I totally apologize for my stupid blunder!
