This fortnights friday challenge over at The Octopode Factory is the theme of hollywood.
For my inspiration of the theme I used the adorable 'Bernie'
For the background I used distress stains as usual along with some white acrylic paint splattered on the background. For the negative strip I used the stamp from HobbyCraft which is a good bargin costing at only £1. I like how even that came out distressed so it all went with the hollywood theme. I then made the border using a black and white pen.
For the other card I used the flapper girl 'Coco' and placed her on some background paper from the Tim Holtz paper range. I just love her eyeshadow on this card and used and coloured her in using promarkers. I am also very proud of how well I actually cut her out particularly on her eyelashes, I like to try and keep as much of the detail as possible otherwise it would look odd I feel.
