Victoriana Goes Pop!

I've been busy crafting away on a few different projects lately but nothing I can share atm... however, I did find time for a bit of a play tonight and made a quick ATC:


I used my new Promarkers for this ATC... they are a limited edition set of summer colours that I stumbled across in Hobbycraft the other week and just had to have them! They're so bright and juicy (and a lovely contrast to the gloomy weather we've had for most of the "summer" here in the UK!).

I also used my Wendy Vecchi stamps that I bought a few months ago and hadn't gotten around to playing with yet. I used the Promarkers and alcohol blending solution (love this technique!) to make the background and stamped over it with the Wendy Vecchi background stamp, using turquoise Archival ink. I then stamped the Stampotique "Bla bla bla" stamp randomly over the background. I stamped the flower part and the victorian lady onto card and coloured them with Promarkers, cut them out and layered them onto the card.

I rather love the result. It's kind of steampunk meets pop art! :lol: Victorian lady a la Andy Warhol! :D

I'm entering this card into the current "Hey Girl" challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show and the "Feeling Fruity" challenge at Passion for Promarkers.

Hi Ali. Very nice ATC. I really like your bright colors. You've done a nice job with the Promarkers. That Wendy flower behind your Victorian woman's head looks good! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

The thumbnail of this gorgeous creation caught my eye - it's wonderful. I love the image you've used and the bla bla bla works so very well. Wonderful!

Ooo Ali. What a gorgeous eye popping ATC you have created here. Love her.
I popped by to say thanks from me and Catriona for popping over to see us. Glad you did as I love this ATC and can see you have been playing with FIMO! I too have some I bought and not played with!
