Today I'd like to share with you the card I have just finished for the current Quixotic Challenge (#17) which is to alter one or more of your TGF stamps. As regular readers of my blog know, Miss Anyas are my all-time favourite TGF stamps, so I just had to alter her! I've been an admirer of Amy Young's awesome talent for a long time, and so I decided to take the plunge and go the whole hog and alter Miss Anya into The Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland!
My inspiration was taken from the character that Helena Bonham Carter plays in Tim Burton's Disney big screen version of Lewis Carroll's novel, and so I used one of the Miss Anyas from the very 1st Miss Anya collection:
After inking up Miss Anya, I wiped away everything apart from her hair. I stamped this, then used my light box and a pre-stamped image to 'trace' the outline of her shoulders and arms. I then used a black fineliner to draw the rest freehand, and finally coloured her using Copics:
I added some very dark red gems to the points of the nestie and used my Bow Easy to tie the black satin ribbon bow! It was really difficult to photograph this - the red is actually more a pinky red, but try as I might I can't edit the pics to show the real colours, grrr! Also the black/cream DP is from the MME Lush range and is actually flocked ... mmmmm!
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
1. Quixotic Paperie Challenge 17
2. I love Anya Ink Challenge - Bling (I have added dark red gems to the 'points' of the nestie!
3. Totally Gorjuss Challenge 22 - Ribbon
Would love to know what you think!!
Thanks for popping by!
