It’s the 15th of May which means it’s time for another Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. This time around, I decided to combine it with this month’s Oh! The Horror! from Smeared & Smudged. One of S&S’s fabulous sponsors this month is Simply Betty. So I chose to use Summer Zombie Christian. But let me give you the low down on both challenges before I show you my card.
1. pattern paper
4. ribbon/lace trim
5. image (stamp or digi)
6. punch/die cuts
7. embossing (wet or dry)
8. square card (any size)
For my card, I used #1, 2, 5, 6, and 7.
Here’s this month’s Oh! The Horror poster:
And here’s my card:
You can see that I dry embossed the blue paper with a wave pattern (I highlighted it with a bit of silver). I used Platinum Liquid Pearls, my patterned paper is from Prima, and you can see the fab zombie image from Simply Betty!
You can see that I used a very loose interpretation of the Repo poster… I put my focal image in the same place, had my senti (from StampInsanity) at an angle, used some text in the same place as the poster, and I used the blue of the “eyes.”
Christian was colored in with my watercolor markers. And I just love how he turned out! I think he looks so cool in his retro bathing suit! I had a really fun time coloring his skin with several shades of green.
So there you have it. TWO awesome challenges that you can participate in! And you have until May 31st for both of them! Won’t you play along? Oh! The Horror is sponsored this month by Sweet November. DICC doesn’t have a sponsor, but you have a shot at winning the opportunity to create your very own itinerary for us to create with! I think that’s a sweet deal! So c’mon and play with me! Thanks for dropping by. Have an inspiring day!!!
