Midway Post, Challenge #37 at Open-Minded Crafting

Post #5, 
Here is the 2nd of my Open-Minded Crafting Blogs that I have missed.
The card is based on this Song and Video

Rose Tattoo by the Dropkick Murphys

The Theme at
Song Inspiration

My Project was:-
Rose Tattoo Digi Stamp
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I started with an A4 sheet of Pearlised Silver Card
(Ross Papers)
which I folded in half.

Next I cut a Piece of Leather Effect Black Paper

so that it fitted just inside the Card Front.
Using 6cm White Lace

Then I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper.
coloured the Image
using my Pens.

Promarker Pens

                                          Vanilla                          - Skin
                                          Satin                             - Skin
                                          Blush                            - Cheeks
                                          Cool Grey 1                  - Eyes, Hair, Leaves
                                          Cool Grey 2                  - Eyes, Hair
                                          Cool Grey 3                  - Hair, Roses
                                          Cool Grey 4                  - Hair, Leaves, Horseshoe
                                          Cool Grey 5                  - Hair, Roses
                                          Black                             - Hair, Tattoo, Horseshoe Center

      Graph'It Pens
                                          Ruby                             - Lips, Hairband, Roses
                                          Tomato                         - Roses, Tattoo

I also Printed out the Sentiment using my Computer
with the letters fading upwards from Red to Black.

Then I Die-Cut the Image and the Sentiment out

using the Locking Loops A2 Set
And I used Gun Metal Metallic Rub-On 
(Earth Tones Kit #2 - Craf-T Products)
around the edges of the Die-Cuts.

On a Scrap of Pearlised Grey Card

(scrap pile)
I used (for the 1st time ever) All Aboard - Map
(Urban Stamps)
with Soft Grey Fur Ink
(Me-To-You - Colour Box)
and on top of that I stamped the Pirate Ship
(Fun Factory)
in Black Soot Ink
(Distress Ink - Tim Holtz)
I then cut it into a Square and distressed the edges
and added some of the Black Soot Ink as well.

I then added a large Red Paper Rose
and a Silver Cross Charm
(Crafty Bitz)
to the Top Left Corner.

For my Finishing touches I added Holographic Silver Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Horseshoe on the Image 
and an 8x6mm Oval Red Diamante Gem in the center of it
(Great Expressions),
And finally Glossy Accents on all of her Hair
