Dark Wishes

Hi there!! I tried something different with this card.  Ching Chou Kuik’s Facebook challenge for March is Everyone’s a Picasso, where we are to be inspired by one of Picasso’s many paintings. A challenge it was!! Ching Chou’s images are very un-Picasso-y, but you should see some of the creations that members have come up with!!  I used Woman With Crow as my inspiration:

woman-with-a-crow

I printed the image, Raven Soul,  on some dark blue card stock, then got to work with my Prismacolor pencils.  It was so hard to see!!  I tried to stick with the colors as best as I could, with the very white face, fading into an orangey color, then the black feathers of the bird.  Once I had it all colored, I was a bit stumped as to the layout…..until I came across this sketch:

at Sketch Saturday! I edged everything with gold ink, then die cut some black banners.  I smuged some ink and doodled some branches on the backing paper, then stamped and embossed a sentiment.  A few gold studs on the banner tied everything together :)

Along with Sketch Saturday, I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:

Birthday Swing

Swing Into Spring

HiBirthday Swing there! Today, I have a card made with Ching Chou Kuik‘s Gentle As A Breeze. There is a challenge in the Kit and Clowder Facebook Group where participants use this image to make a project.  I actually made a card with this stamp previously, but learned that wine does not go well with coloring! I wasn’t happy with it, so I got my SN markers out and made this one :) With the colors of the image being so bright, I opted for leaving the rest of the card quite subdued. Some embossed paper for the background, a Poopy Stamps birthday die,  pearls, and a few white bows was all this spring-like card needed :) I hope you like it!!

I’d like to enter this card in the following challenges:
