"Genie" a card for The East Wind DT

Howzit Everyone!
It's time for the 2nd Challenge for July over at The East Wind blog and Challenge #59 is a "Photo Inspiration" one!

I made a cut-a-way card featuring Genie

 The inspiration photo is this beach scene and we challenge you to create with whatever inspires you the most whether you go literal and do a beach scene or go with certain colours or a just a feeling.....its very open to interpretation!  I decided to go with colour and pulled in the blue of the sky, teal of the ocean, sandy brow, the hint of pink and coral and the black from the shadows plus when I saw this digi stamp I immediately connected beach sand to sand dunes to Aladdin and the lamp to Genie and knew I had to use her!

 I started out in Photoshop CS6 and sized her so she's a bit larger than half a sheet of cardstock and then printed her onto Neenah solar white cardstock.  She's coloured with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  The background was done with Copics and Alcohol Solution and enhanced with Prismacolor pencil.  I fussy cut out the up portion and then adhered the coloured panel to a sheet of white cardstock folded in half.  I love how she turned out, she's so hauntingly beautiful.

Come and join the fun at The East Wind...we have 2 blog challenges every month and fun challenges on on our Facebook TEW Group too!


 Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
Happy Stamping!
