Karen's Doodles Challenge

This is Karen's Doodles third challenge on her new challenge blog. This week it is "Fancy Folds". We have to make a card in a shape other than rectangle or square. Of course the main focus has to be one of Karen's awesomely cute digi stamps. I am fairly new to card making, so I had to really think about what to do. While researching, I found some really cool ways to fold cards, but I was afraid I wouldn't have enough time to complete the challenge by the deadline, so this is what I came up with.

I just love this Fairy Ballerina that Karen has designed, so I took her and made a mirror image, then attached them. (I had to clean up the one side that would make the back of the card). I then printed them out, cut out around them, making sure to leave the spaces where they connect in tack so it would be in card form. After cutting them out, I began the fun part, which is, coloring her in. I used my Prismacolors and blended and shaded using baby oil with a blending stump. I love how that technique makes the colors really vivid and pop. And of course I had to add a bit of sparkle with Stickles.

Come on over to Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog and check out all the entries.
