"White Nights Goth Fairy" Smeared and Smudged Rock n Rolla Challenge

Hiya Everyone!
Today I'm sharing a digi creation that was inspired by the current Rock n Rolla challenge over at the Smeared and Smudged forum!  In case you all didn't know, the forum is a great community of artists and we've got lots of fun challenges going on every single month with prizes up for grabs.  You have to be a member of the forum but it's free so come and play with us ;0)

 So back to the Rock n Rolla challenge......you are challenged to focus on finding inspiration from music videos! It's fun and makes you think out of the box.  Each month a link to a video is provided and you find something in the video that inspires you and you make a project based on that.

January's CHALLENGE:
Oh Land - White Nights

 I was inspired by the all white fairy/angel part at the beginning of the video and then the white and black geometrics about half way through.  I used one of Smeared Ink's Goth Fairies and coloured her in subtle pastel shades in Photoshop.  I erased the interior white areas on the fairy's wings and underlaid the digital images of the white feathers.  For the background I used SI's light "Checkered" digi paper from the Zombie Killa 12 x 12 paper pack and added the white decorative lines and finished with beveling and drop shadows to the fairy and wings to give her more dimension.  That really was loads of fun, it looks very Art Deco-esque ;0)

Here's a closer look at her!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!

  1. This is such a perfect representation of the video, awesome job! I love the added feather wings and monochromatic coloring with just a touch of pink, it makes this very pretty and feminine but not overly so.


Thank you for visiting and leaving me some love, your comments are most appreciated!
Happy Stamping!
