Another day closer!! Here's hoping I'm ready - more wrapping done last night and still more to do... plenty time though! hahaha
Anyway, the card I am sharing today uses an image from Ike's Art called 'Vaguely Goth' - if you're a regular here you'll know I've used her before - but today this is for my first entry in Ike's new challenge blog! I say new challenge blog, this is her 7th challenge and I feel really rubbish for not having entered before now, better late than never though!
The theme is 'Christmas is coming' and you have to use an Ike's image to be in with a chance at a prize. I have based my card around an Irn Bru advert! For those of you non-Scots reading, Irn Bru is a very orange coloured fizzy caffienated soft drink and the company is famed for its tongue in cheek advertising - here is the very advert -
So I had the slogan in my head 'Cheer up Goth, it's Christmas!' And this is what happened!
I used lots of black and purple pearlescent paper, I cut frames, flourishes and snowflakes, layered everything up with the Vaguely Goth image coloured with Promarkers. I printed the sentiment off the computer and popped in on 3D foam. The edges of the white card are inked with Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress ink using a blending tool.
Now to find a sullen Goth type to give it to! hahaha
I do hope that all of you reading this take it in the context that its meant - a bit of fun and laughter, not at all meant to offend! I was that sullen Goth teen and she's still in here somewhere! Bah humbug!
