Just For You

Hello friends…
As always.. Fridays is Just Magnolia/Just Hanglar Stanglar challenge and we have a Bingo card for you to play with.

I will make it short today because I have one more photo than usual.
This shot shows you a bit better the colors. I first went around the image with a light green – I wanted the card feel a spooky and grungy.. plus I wanted to pick up the colors of the DP (green bats) after blending the green with Gamsol I went over with cool grey 70% and added the night around my cute Hanglar bat girl.

Papers are a mix of different companies and pads. I used Maja Design, Basic Grey (Erie) and Making Memories (spider web).
Sentiment (Stampin up) was this time stamped onto white paper Smile after I was reading a comment on one of my cards over on the LOVT blog.

If you look at the corners of the bat paper.. I used
silver stickles (inside and outside) to create a little corner accents (used my index finger to get it in place).I have repeated this in the inside as well – and added also gems to the inside.

here is a shot where I think the bats show a bit better. Added some Stickles in Stardust to the wings to make them stand out a bit more and added eyes with a white gel pen. Flowers have tulle inside – I believe these are not available at Wild Orchid Crafts – not sure. I know I got mine through Magnolia.

The bat wings of the girl and the heart tail have some black gems as well. I just like how it gives the image some extra dimension when you hold it.
other supplies used
Copic: Express Blending cardstock
Stampin up oval punch
Black Satin Ribbon (Ribbon girl) corner piece (Wild Orchid Crafts)

Christine said...

Wow, just an amazing card!! You are so talented. Just wondering. You said you used Gamsol to blend the green and gray colors. What media did you use? Copic or something else?
Have a lovely day!
