Midway Post Challenge #28 at Open-Minded Crafting

Well for a change theres a bit of  positive and happy news,
My Brother has come over from Denmark for a visit.
So I am hotfooting it to my Parents,
as he has brought my Nephew which him.
and I can finally meet him in person.
And as you can imagine I am bouncing all over the place with excitement.

The Theme at

My Project for this
week is:-

Beauty And The Beast Digi Stamp
from Ike's Art
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with used an A4 sheet of Black Card
(Ross Papers)
which I folded in half to make a Rectangle Base Card.

Next I chose a Clip Art Image of a Clapper Board on my computer
and also a Film Strip which I copied twice.

Inside the Clapper Board I placed the Digital Image
and printed them all off
on White DC Paper.
I coloured in the Image
using my Promarker Pens.

                                                                                  Blush (Cheeks)

                                                           Girl Hair -    Pastel Yellow
                                                                                  Burnt Sienna
                                                           Beast Skin - Sandstone

                                                                                  Ivory (Teeth)
                                                                                  Dusky Rose (Lips)
                                                                                  Pastel Yellow (Eyes)

                                                                                  Burnt Sienna

Using some Spare White DC Paper 
I stamped out the Letters for 
'Happy Birthday'
using Fancy Alphabet Rubber Stamps
(GC Rubber Stamps)
and Tuxedo Black Ink
I then fussy cut out each Square Letter,
then placed them on the Film Strips.

I edged the rectangle of white paper with the Image on with 

Silver Rhinestone Mesh
And added 3 Silver Brads
 to the Hinge of the Clapper Board.
Then I added 2 Black Feathers
and 2 Cream Paper Roses
(Craft Shop - SIL)
All to show a bit of the Silver Screen
Pomp and Circumstance.

And my Final touch was adding Glossy Accents
to Beauty's Hair.
