But, before I go... this last challenge I will be doing for Craft Your Passion is "Think Pink", in honor of Breast Cancer awareness month. The sponsor is Dilly Beans and she has provided images for the Design Team to use - I chose this "Frida". You can see what the rest of the team has done with this theme and the challenge rules HERE.
So easy! I started with the bright pink CS from my stash, gave it a top fold and shaped the bottom front edge to enhance the idea of a framed picture on a stand. I wanted all the attention on Frida, so the framing consists of alternate layers of white, two different papers from Basic Grey's "Indie Bloom" and leftover CS from the base card. The image was printed three times with the base image being colored with Copics. After cutting out the main panel, I colored the edge with black to intensify the frame. The other two copies of Frida were used to make 2 additional layers for her hair [bottom right] and the flowers. These parts were colored, fussy cut, sculpted using dry embossing and popped up on foam tape for added dimension. Her earrings were coated with silver foil for bling and the sentiment was punched and matted to complete the front. The inside used scraps from the front and two punched hearts layered for the corner.
