TORSO BLING

Well, I'm still tired out, so much so that I am 'almost' wide awake. Not much point going to bed in that state so I decided to get in 'me' craft room and have a go at the Something Completely Different challenge for this month, week 1, which is Torso/bling.

I like the idea of having one main theme for the whole of the month then 'twiddling' it by having a different slant on it each week.

After my tea I tried and tried to think of what I could do and in the end came up with this,


Not sure whether the photo shows the bling properly, but I embossed the scroll with Stamp-n Stuff disco black embossing powder giving it a real sparkle. I managed to print off some copies of the torso provided by SCD and cut it out from mountboard to ATC measurements. Using all 4 lovely orange DIs, wild honey, rusty hinge, spiced marmalade and dried marigold, I inked all the card adding more colour to the right hand side. I then stamped the eyes in black archival and the words in aged mahogany before adding the sparkle swirl.

Hope this is ok and the photo is not too blurred - bad light. Just off to let them know I've done it and enter the challenge.
