Tortagialli Angel Heart Girl

This pretty little redhead is a fab image that Linda Tieu from Tortagialli gave us for the 2nd round of challenges at the CDAC.

I decided I was going to go down the mean and moody route and made her into an Emo girl using grey and black with red as the only real colour in there. Every time I see and Emo kid they seem to have red hair and striped apparel of some sort so I made her tights stripey. I think I’ve got the look right as she looks like my next door neighbour, my niece, like loads of the kids that hand around St. Paul’s Cathedral in the middle of Birmingham…… I bet they all think they look different but I think they all look the same LOL

Following a sketch from the House that Stamps Built I layered papers together from the HOTP pack with some ribbon from my stash. Rather than put a full message on there I used chipboard letters to spell HB. All these kids use Facebook and text messaging and seem to prefer to use ‘text talk’ to hb for Happy Birthday it is (and here was me thinking it had something to do with pencil lead….)

I used Promarkers to colour my image, creating a second layer for the dress and glasses. I used stickles to highlight the heart on the dress and glossy accents for the glass on the glasses.

If you took part in round 2 of the CDAC Progressive Challenge you will have received your fabulous images. Team B have provided the DT samples this time round and they have done a brilliant job with them. If you missed out on the last challenge you can buy yourself back in for only $1 so head on over to the CDAC and be part of the fun.

Super cool card, Mandy. You gave me a chuckle when you said they dress like that to be different but they end up all looking the same. So true.

Thank you for commenting on my blog and sharing some of your heart with me. It means a lot to me.
