The new book at The Library is Forty Whacks by David Kent. This was chosen by Visiting Librarian, Arlene, and I must say, I was surprised and delighted with her choice! I bet this is the first ever craft challenge inspired by true crime.
First I stamped and masked the torn effect stamp. (Woodware).The woman holding the sign is an old Ken Brown stamp , I masked her and stamped the city(Penny Black?) behind her and stamped the 40 with Happy Little Stamper stamps. I coloured it with Promarkers.
I'd like to enter:
As You See it red and black always looks dramatic
What a clever and eye-catching design, Marina! Thanks so much for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Take care! :)
Love that big 40!
Great masking and design and a very striking card Marina x.
Great take on the theme Marina.
Many thanks for your help with my blog problem, your advice seems to have solved that problem. Now I just need to work out how to post on a challenge without messing up!
Love your creative card design Marina and I completely agree with you - red and black do make for a suitably dramatic colour combo. Thanks for joining us over at As You See It this week!
I agree, red and black are a dramatic combination. I like the way the woman and the '40' burst out of the page - more drama! Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge.
It’s definitely an unusual choice. Your card is so clever!
what an interesting challenge. Your card is very cleverly done. Thanks for sharing with us at Watercooler Wednesday this week,
Wow that is a neat look! I like how you used masking with your torn paper stamp.
What a great cue for making a card! I never thought about crime inspiring greeting cards! I love how you've made the greeting and the woman burst through the paper! I'm guessing this is someone's 40th birthday card! I like your dramatic choice of colour duos! Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenges!
Absolutely fabulous take on the challenge!
Wow, great take on the challenge! So impressed by the "torn" stamp, who woulda thought? Great details
LOL, what a great take on such an unusual theme! You can never go wrong with black and red, either! Thanks for sharing your color favs at As You See It this week!
