New Challenge #172 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hey Everyone,

Yay the snow went and I made it to College
with out any incidents,
though I think the Computers there
are all ganging up on me
as they seem to quit working on me.
And it is always when I'm halfway
through inputting my work.
I end up with a New Business Sage program
that seems to take over a year to get going
(I need to remember when the computer goes off,
change my dates when I restart!!!!!)

Good news as well the Car is now back from the
Car Doctor with a clean bill of health
(and a few new parts).

Anyways this weeks Card was inspired by
one of my favorite Artists of all time
and a Song from one of the very 1st Albums I ever bought.

The Theme at
Say It With Music

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Bugaboo who are offering
7 Images from their store

Ike's Art who are offering
a $15 Gift Certificate for their store

Sami Stamps who are offering
a $12 Gift Certificate for their store

My Project this
week is:-
Wolf 3 Digi Stamp
from Ike's Art
(One of our sponsors)
To begin with I used a A4 Sheet of Pearlised Grey Card
on which I cut out with my Brother Scan and Cut,
a House Folded Card
(Free SVG File - Birds Cards)
Because it didnt pop as much as I wanted it to
I cut another Front out using Black Card
but I made it 2mm bigger than the Grey one.

Behind the Cutout Card Image I used a sheet of Rainbow Parchment
(Gifted to me)
which I thought Lined up perfectly with cutouts of the Image.

For the Door I used the piece that was cut out 
and trimmed it down so you can see the 'Light' around it.
And for the Door Handle I used a 2mm Metallic Blue Brad.
I raised it up from the main cutout Image with Decoupage Foam Pads.

To accentuate the 'Smoke' rising from the House Chimney
I used my White Pen
(Graph' It - Shake Pen)

Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Dusky Pink
Ice Grey 1
Ice Grey 2
Ice Grey 3
Ice Grey 4
Ice Grey 5
I then fussy cut the Image out.

For my Sentiment I wrote it out on my Computer 
and printed it off.
It is a Quote from the Song
"There's a Wolf at your door,
He says he's playin' for keeps"
(Meatloaf - Wolf At Your Door - Midnight At The Lost And Found)
I then cut it out and rounded the corners off 
using a 5mm Corner Punch

As a little touch I used a little piece of 
Smokey Grey 2cm Satin Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
which I placed just under the Sentiment.

Finally as a finishing touch I cut out a Circle 

out of a scrap of the White Paper
which I dotted with Light Grey and Dark Grey Chalk
(Decorative Pastel Chalks - Dovecraft)
and added it as a Moon in the top Right of the Card.
