Presenting Rio- Ed Wood Style!
I started with "Rio" from Simply Betty Stamps and her pet bat. I used some type of coated paper I found. I really don't know what it is coated with. My copics didn't like the surface too much and I couldn't get really blendy, but the shininess of the image resembles a photo IRL! Way cool! I popped her up a bit with foam adhesive squares and mounted her on a tree-stamped piece of the white coated cardstock. The background paper has those awesome dimensional "rain drops" on it. The other DP was actually paper designed for a prom layout, but I chopped of the little dance quote and ended up with some cool black and silver paper. Some barbed-wire ribbon and the title of Wood's "Night of the Ghouls" movie...and my project was complete! I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I've never used a black and white color scheme on a card before. Without color, I was forced to add interest with pattern and texture. It was a challenge for me, but it was a challenge I enjoyed!
