Gargoyle Girl

Hello my crafty friends.  I hope you are all enjoying your day.  Today I have a card to share with you using a stamp from Queen Kat Designs, where as most of you know, I am on their Design Team.  What a thrill this ride has been.  It has taken me out of my comfort zone by forcing me to use stamps that I normally wouldn't even think of using.  It has been fun to see where my ideas take me.  I haven't always been extremely happy with the finished products, but I am proud of the fact that I have tried to think outside the box. 

That is exactly what I have done with this card.  It is wwwaaayyy outside my normal creative box.    This stamp is from Terra Bidlespacher and is called Gargoyle.  I love this little stamp.  She is my first gargoyle and I don't see her being my last. For me, working with these images are rather hard.  I usually do cute or sweet cards, even my masculine cards could be considered cute.  So, to try and go Goth, Emo, or just plain out there is a challenge.  But, I have enjoyed stretching my creative ability.  So, without further ado, here she is..

I call this one "Freak".  I used glitter pens to color her in.  I used a Tiki Hut Tan BIC marker to color her skin but it came out looking kinda greenish.  I hand drew the wall background and then added some graffiti to it.  I actually just kept adding embellishments until I thought it looked ok.  I added a stick pen to the big flower and some metallic nail heads to the corners.  Glossy Accents highlight the wall.  I think she turned out pretty "cute"..lol

Thanks for stopping in today.  And don't forget about the October 13 Days of Halloween blog hop over on QKD.  God bless you.

Love that hand-drawn background, it really pulls the card together. The image is cute, but I don't expect anything less from Terra!!
