The 15th of the month brings another round for the Dueling Darlings
and this month's Dazzling Hostess is Terry!
January is "Book Blitz Month" so the kits for the Divas and Dazzlers have a reading theme. Terry's fun kit contained images from MFT's Who's That Girl line entitled "Well Read" - the image and the sentiment as well.
Her generous kit also included DPs from Basic Grey "Study Hall", DCWV solid brown and Fancy Pants "Frigid". Terry also gave us baker's Twine, star buttons, nailheads metal stickers and brown ribbon. Wooo, lots to work with here!
Right when I saw the image I wanted to create images floating above her as if she was reading a travel adventure or mystery novel. Here's what I came up with:
The other stamps are from a gifted set that I have never used, "HannaStamps" and I think may be of Hanna Montana origin, not sure. At any rate, when I received them I couldn't imagine how to use them. Well, this kit provided the opportunity!
The picture on the right is a close up of the image, colored with Spectrum Noir markers. That's a safari hat hanging off her ankle, not part of the MFT image. It's a little out of proportion, but I thought it was fun.
Here's a peek at the inside:
Not in the kit, but from my stash are the eyelets and antique brad used to hang the sentiment. It's actually hanging loose, like a sign and not glued down.
We are also to post our favorite author or our favorite book. Those are almost impossible choices since my reading taste spans quite a few genres. I guess, if forced to pick just one it would be fantasy/adventure/mystery types of novels and certainly at the top of the list would be J. R. R. Tolkien. I discovered The Hobbit and the Trilogy in the early 70's and it's still beloved. Another masterpiece is Stephen King's "The Gunslinger" series. He kept us waiting years between installments, so long that I had to read the previous book again to remember where things left off.
Thank you Terry, for such a marvelous kit! I had a lot of fun creating with it. (Although when my husband saw the card, he didn't understand what I was going for with the travel, safari theme.) Hopefully it comes across for all of my card making friends out there!
Now, off you go to visit the other marvelous creations by my fellow Dazzlers and the Divas on our opposing team! Be sure to leave love along the way. Thanks for stopping by!
