Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #30

Friday evening & challenge time at Crafts 4 Eternity. Michele has designed another fab sketch to follow. The added extras this week are to
1. Incorporate a film title
2. Use corrugated cardboard

I'd been dying to ink up this stamp from Kraftin Kimmie, her name is Vivienne. I got her from Quixotic Paperie & decided, though I haven't actually seen it, to use the film 'Showgirls' as my inspiration. I exposed the corrugation on the cardboard, then coloured it with a mix of liquid pearls & clear rock candy Distress Crackle Paint.

Vivienne is coloured with Promarkers & I used a glitter pen on her feathers, though it doesn't show in the photo. The DPs are an MME freebie I got with a magazine. I just love how foxy she looks!
So there you go. I hope you'll check out the fabulous work of my wonderful DT colleagues here. This weeks prize is a choice of digi images from Michele's fab Crafts 4 Eternity store.
Thank goodness it is the weekend. I've been on a pretty intensive two week training course, that has been brilliant, but quite tiring. It's over now unfortunately. But hopefully now I can finally catch up with myself, even get ahead a little!! It's hard though, I'm currently engrossed in the second of the Millenium trilogy, 'The Girl who Played with Fire'. I don't think I'll be fully back on track until I've gotten through the third one. I highly recommend them, but just don't expect to get much crafting done, LOL!!
Thanks for looking,
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
