Seeing stars!

Shaped Cards is the theme set at Craft Your Passion.So no squares or rectangles allowed!We have Kenny K and Pizzazzaplenty as our fab sponsors too!Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used Anime Rocker from Kenny K Downloads.I’ve tried to colour him as close to the Anime style as I could get.The colours are more definite light/dark contrasts rather than the graduated shading I usually try to achieve.I even highlighted areas with a white gel pen.Something tells me I NEED to stop watching Pokemon!!For the card base I folder a piece of silver mirri card in half and used a template printed off my ‘puter for the shape.I then used a smaller one to cut the corrugated card layer.I then switched to cutting the other two stars with a die – a lot easier and quicker!The middle one is Whitewash card passed through an embossing folder and sanded to bring the notes out.I stamped and cut out the sentiment adding a safety pin.I punched some holes then set some silver eyelets and tied through some faux suede strips I found in The Works.I love  ’em!Word of warning tho’.If you buy them open the packet and let them air as soon as you get them.Not sure if it’s the dye but they don’t half whiff!Luckily I needed to stroke them once I got home so they’re OK now.Every time I look at this card I just want to sing “Welcome to Shooting Stars,Welcome whoever you are”.

    what a cool looking card! I love the idea of a shaped card and then this anime element is spectacular. Not kidding, I think the color work you put into this is fantastic. What a cool, edgy but not too edgy (lol, I hope you know what i mean), and original card! I love it, I really do. I’m so glad you played with us at Opus Gluei this time, sorry my comment arrives so late but I wanted to let you know how much I like this, hope we get you back for more fun with us!
