Galadriel for Movie Magic Monthly

Greetings! I have a project that features a new Rick St. Dennis image that was specifically made for this month's Movie Magic Monthly challenge. The challenge is Lord of the Rings vs. Harry Potter. And, as I mentioned in my first post for this challenge, I am definitely a Lord of the Rings girl, so I wanted to do another project to feature that saga.

This is Galadriel. She's a beauty, isn't she? I colored her entirely with Distress Inks...something I haven't done in a while. I enjoy coloring with them. You can really create some nice effects. To color with the inks, I use Ranger's Cut 'N Dry Nibs.

If you take a look at my background, that was also done with Distress Inks. I used the Fleur de Lis stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils. To apply the ink, I used a stencil brush.

My little die cut was done on my Making Memories Slice machine. It's a very simple card, but the image has so much impact, along with the background, that I didn't want to overdo it. I will point out that I used a cream colored card for my base. White would have been too stark and harsh. On the 28th, some of the  other gals from the Movie Magic Monthly team will be posting other projects using the 2 new RSD images that Rick created for this challenge. Please be sure to swing over! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
