New Challenge #40 at Open-Minded Crafting

Well this is some sad news,
Unfortunately the Open-Minded Crafting Fun Blog
is closing down its Challenges.
So this post is early, and is also my Penultimate post for the site.
I have had the pleasure of working with some
truly remarkable Ladies, 
and seeing their amazing creations.
Hopefully I will be able to work with them all again
someday soon.

My Project for this
week is:-
Hollaback Girl Digi Stamp
from Kenny K 
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I chose a pre-cut Tri-fold White Card
Then I cut some Pearlised Light Blue Card
to cover the front of the Card.
for the Base I used Dark Green Card
and I cut and extra 1.5 Wide strip so that
the front could stand up.

Next I printed off the Image 

on White DC Paper.
coloured the Images
using my Promarker Pens.

                                               Satin                   - Skin
                                               Putty                  - Skin
                                               Blush                  - Cheeks
                                               Dusky Rose       - Lips
                                               Sunkissed Pink - Mouth
                                               Coral                   - Tongue
                                               Red                     - Nails/T-Shirt
                                               Amber                - Shoes
                                               Sunflower          - Shoes
                                               Tan                     - Hair
                                               Cinnamon          - Hair
                                               Cocoa                 - Hair
                                               Henna                - Hair
                                               Walnut               - Hair
                                               Pastel Green     - Wall
                                               Grass                 - Bracelet/Belt
                                               Holly                  - Trousers
                                               Aubergine         - T-Shirt
                                               Cool Aqua         - Wall Bricks
                                               Sky Blue           - Wall Top
                                               Azure                - Eyes/Bracelet/Wall Top
I then backed the Image on to a piece of stiff White Card
and cut the Image out with the Scalloped Oval Die
(X-Cut XCU503406)

I then went around the edge of the Die-Cut Image
 with my Azure Promarker Pen.
and to give it a touch of Sparkle
I went over the top of the pen with
Multi-Mix Blues Glitter
(Glitter Magic).

 to fit inside oval of the Die Cut.
 And then fussy cut out the Frame 
to fit on top of the Image,
over the Die cut Cream Card.
I went around all ot the edges 
with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
(Tim Holtz)

 Using some Scraps of Pearlised Red, Orange and Yellow Card
and some Pearlised Purple and White Paper
(all from my scrap box)
I used 2 Flower Punches
(Petal Pair, Set 3 - Tonic)
and added them to the Blue background.
Using the Holly Promarker Pen 
I scribbled on some Grass, Flower Stems and Leaves,
under the flowers.
and drew on 2 Bumblebee's using
Sunflower and Black Promarker Pens.


To finish off I added to the center of the Flowers 
6mm Dotted Yellow Rhinestones

I would like to enter this card in
