New Release at StampInsanity!

Thursday, October 7, 2010

First of all I'm super psyched to say that I made the DT at StampInsanity - whoot! Second of all it's Thursday again which means it's time for a new challenge over at StampInsanity! The challenge this week is to trick it or treat it (kind of like naughty or nice). Make a card or other project that involves a favorite technique or a Halloween theme. So get crafty and link your project HERE. AND third of all, we're showing off NEW IMAGES that are available in the StampInsanity store HERE. The new release is called Devil Dolls:

Aren't they all yummy?! I got to play with Hilda for the challenge this week and this is what I came up with:
I really don't think these images are limited to Halloween but I decided to use a Halloween theme on my card. After seeing the picture of the card, however, I was disappointed. Don't you hate it when the picture of your card doesn't really look like the card does in real life? The inside of her cape and her hair is actually a pretty purple color but in the photo it looks more blue. And I spent a lot of time shading her and it doesn't really show up in the picture either. Grrr! Oh well, it is what it is I guess. I had a really fun time coloring her though!

I kept the design pretty simple because I really wanted Hilda to shine because she's so groovy! I colored her with Copics and you can't tell from the picture but I put purple gems on her arm bands for some added bling. The ribbon I won from Fantastic Ribbons and I tied the bow using the Bow Easy that I got HERE.

To see more of the images from the new release check out the other members of the DT listed on my sidebar. We've been broken into two teams but for this new release we're all creating projects this week.

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of that StampInsanity has a digi set available HERE. You can read about the set HERE. All proceeds are donated to help with breast cancer research.
