Friday's challenge :Warhol


Okay, I have to admit...I am not a fan of Warhol. Sorry! I know that many people are, but it just isn't my style. That being said, I totally love how this card turned out! It was so quick and easy! My card base is black with 2" squares of ruby red, summer sun, pumpkin pie, and old olive cardstock layered on it. I stamped my little mummy (from the retired Booglie Eye's set) in basic black and was going to leave it at that but...I couldn't resist added a tiny bit of white to the eyes. I used a white watercolor pencil to do that. I wanted it subtle...and, my white gel pens are all out of ink! (aaah! What will I do?? Order more!) I used a black marker to ink up the boo to you, omitting the 'happy' that is on that stamp and stamped it, punched it and added a purple scallop under it. To make the holes for my ribbon, I used the handheld rectangle punch and punched three times in a row to make a big rectangle hole. The ribbon is a new striped pumpkin from Stampin' Up!
Be sure to check out the other BC cards, I can't wait to see what they all come up with. Maybe I will end up liking the Warhol technique after all!
