I just love the Kraftin Kimmie Moonlight Whispers stamps! This image called Gadget Girl is one of my favorites. It might have something to do with my love of masks, shiny thigh high boots, and black evening gloves! I may be a superhero in my own head. I'm just going to blame the whole mask fetish on watching too much Batman as a child. I wanted to grow up to be Cat Woman. Didn't we all though?
Over at the Krafty Girls blog there's a sketchy challenge going on that I wanted to take part in.
I'm amazed at how much faster a card comes together when you have a sketch to follow. The hardest decision I had in making this card was choosing the papers. After about an hour of contemplation I just decided to use some of my favorites that I had been hoarding for a while. The lovely leopard print paper has a velvety embossed texture to it. The sparkly magenta is a heavily sparkled,thick card stock that just makes me happy looking at it! The purple background panel is paper that I made using my dye inks and a page protector.
I used crystal effects to shine up Gadget Girl's mask, gloves,and boots. When I started to sponge up the oval Spellbinders die, the ink was a little darker and heavier than what I was going for but it ended up having a furry appearance so I decided to just go with it. I glued down a piece of map overlay on the sponged die cut with some crystal effects to give my Gadget Girl a global feel.
I hadn't intended to sparkle up her super hero suit but one of the pink Copics I used was really dark and I was having a hard time blending it out. I believe you can never have too much sparkle and bling so it was all good in my world. All good until I realized I didn't have the sentiment I wanted to use on my card. This rubber stamp set comes with a generous 4 sentiments. "LOL"," Text Ya Later", "TTYL", and "Byte Me". When I mounted this set on cling foam, along with a bunch of other Kraftin Kimmie stamps I must have thrown out "Byte Me". Ugh! I remember thinking that I better be careful that I don't end up throwing a piece of mounted rubber sentiment away, but that's exactly what happened! And of course it had to be the sentiment I really wanted to use! Yeah, Byte Me!
My husband thinks I'm a freak because he caught me taking pictures of my mask collection on my lovely leopard bed spread. I told him I wanted to share it on my blog and he just shook his head and walked away...haha! Blogs are for sharing... and I just wanted to share my mask collection with you.
