Vanessa Vamp...

I have a wonderful sentiment from Ginger's House that amuses me - and I needed the right image to go with.  This image from Aliciabel fit my mental image to a Tee!

The new challenge for 613 Ave C is ATG/Optional Twist: Use Orange & Blue and 2 Neutral Colors.  I have been assigned ATG with an Aliciabel image.  Makes for an easy challenge - anything goes or play along with the color challenge!  The front porch gang put together some great projects this week - you can see their work and check out the specifics of the challenge at the link above.


  • The image 'Vanessa the Vamp' was provided for my use by Aliciabel.  You can find it HERE in the Halloween section.  The image has a bat flying in the upper left - but I covered it up with my sentiment.  I wanted a little less cute and a little more class for my woman with a 'tude'!

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP used for the background & the punched foliage - unknown source.
  • Inside has a simple 'spray' of fern using the same DP from the front in the one corner.

  • Martha punch used for the foliage with Liquid Pearls used for the flower buds.
  • McGill punch used for the fern on the inside. 
  • "Bundled Sage" Distress Ink used to distress all the edges. 
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics & Prismcolor Pencils:

    4. Hello Ginny! First of all, I would like to thank you for your wonderful comment on my card this week at 613 Avenue Create and taking the time to visit my Blog even when it was not posted yet...LOL (Just been pretty busy yesterday!. It's always nice to hear from someone who loves Papercrafting like I do. You have been kind and supportive about my creative process and I am very grateful. Anyway, love the borders you placed in this card. I have the same punch but prolly used it once. I have many things that I keep and have forgotten to use. Great touch on adding those Liquid pearls too. Have a wonderful week my friend and God bless always.
