SOG- Ghostly Violin
Today is your lucky day, because I have 2 digi cards to share!
You might have already seen my earlier version of Some Odd Girl's Violin Gwen, so you probably know that I just adore it. Since I had printed her out twice last time, I decided to color her in again.
Originally, I was going to go for a black-and-white Noir feel - something glamorous and pale. But as I was coloring her, it struck me that she looked a bit ghostly. So, of course, I had to go all out and make her into a proper undead.
After I finished coloring Gwen in, her pupils and smile looked a bit out of place. So, I used my white gel pen to "erase" a few of the lines. Now she has a blank stare with no pupil, and a much more sad face.
I carefully cut around the stamp, leaving a small white border and set it aside for the rest of the card.
I made a base by cutting a scoring a piece of navy cardstock in half to create a standard A2 card (4 1/4 by 5 1/2"). Then I grabbed a piece of patterned paper from the Gorjuss paper pad and cut it to measure 4 by 5 1/4". I adhered it to the base with my standard dot adhesive.
I adhered Gwen to the card with foam squares. For the sentiment, I found the perfect sticker in the Echo Park mini music collection kit. As a last touch, I added a few black, gray and white enamel dots.
