The Paper Shelter - Challenge #2





Hello!  Come on in and visit a spell!  Today we're starting a new challenge at The Paper Shelter blog.  The design team is asking you to create red themed cards.  If you feature a Paper Shelter image in your creation, you may be selected to win a $15 gift certificate to spend in The Paper Shelter Shop.  What a great way to add to those digi images!


The card I created for this challenge features Gothic Girl.  I like her because she is sporting some serious "'tude".  I colored her up with my Copics and added a very kewl strip of leather, studded with tiny grommets.  Guess where I picked up that clever bit of trim.  WalMart.  I know...I hate to admit it, but I always find great stuff there.  If only it didn't feel like I am selling my soul to the devil every time I walk in.  Wait, scratch that...not only does it feel like I am selling my soul to the devil, but he's making the purchase with a coupon for half off and the illegal use of his stepbrother's employee discount.  Ugh!

Before you leave Blogland, pop over to The Paper Shelter's site and check out what the design team whipped up for you.  This group of folks is ridiculously talented, have a look for yourself.  Well, that's it for me.  Catch you later and don't forget to Stay Crafty!

  14. That image is really fun. It's cute, but edgy with the coffin bag and skull headband.

    Fantastic card. I love your coloring. It's perfect. Of course.

    I love that you made her hair blue and that the studs in her hairband match the studded leather trim that you got from the Satanic Majesty, Sam Walmart.

    I also love the design and the patterned paper.
