As part of my new outlook for 2013, I'd like to
start entering more challenges.
Unfortunately, sometimes my 'style' of paper crafting isn't
fit for mass consumption.
I am far from a conformist, but I do want to play with
the big, fancy dogs (sorry ladies) on occasion.
Which means I have to 'fluff up a bit', and make pretty things.
I can do this. Watch me!
I have been wanting to play along with Kenny K challenges,
but haven't been in the right mood.
His images call for a bit of work to color in all of the details,
and then the actual card has to be just as detailed (in my mind, anyway).
So, when inspiration hit, I started with this image.
As if she wasn't self explanatory, her name is "Warrior Princess".
She's pretty bad ass, huh? Even with pink hair.
Then, I broke out with my terribly underused, pretty things.
Roses I colored to match my color scheme, a metal heart brad, lots of
half pearls, a pearl stick pin, and some fancy pearled sprigs.
Yes, I did own all of this pretty schtuff prior to my life as a
creepy chick crafter. Funny, how personal styles change.
I admire this style of crafting immensely, and try to imitate it
in my own work when it seems fitting.
LOTS of dimension on this project.
This will definitely need a padded envelope when it's mailed.
I always have trouble with the whole "less is more" concept,
but I think I stopped just in time on this one.
I really enjoyed this project, and adore the way the card turned out.
I can make pretty things, too!
I'd like to enter this in the current Vintage challenge at Kenny K.
