Keep Your Eyes on the Stars

This afternoon we are rolling out the April Morgan's Artworld Challenge with another round of beautiful images from her Design Team. 

For my project card, I've selected Morgan's, 'Merida' ~ another image that would be perfect for a book cover, don't you think? 

 I've colored her beautiful flowing gown in Copic shades of blues and given her auburn hair.  

I printed a second image on 'plain' paper and trimmed it right on the image line.  I used this piece as a mask, carefully taping it to the colored image.  Then I used a makeup brush and 'Stormy Sky' Distressed Oxide to brush in the midnight colored background.

After stamping the sentiment, I trimmed the gold matting to 1/8" larger than both the sentiment and the completed image and secured to each accordingly.  The card base is a 6" square cream patterned design with the fold to the left.  The background mat is about 1/8" smaller and matches the woodgrain piece in the background.  After securing the image and the sentiment, I added the three dots across the top right corner and tied the gold rope at the fold.  

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
