Ike's Art at Left of Centre

Well, it's the end of the first week of November already and it's getting so cold! My wee fingers are numb trying to type...must find a heavy cardi! Onto the task at hand though! Today is the start of a new challenge at Left of Centre and our theme for this fortnight is Washi Tape or Twine! So a very broad theme no restrictions and of course if you dont want to use washi tape or twine on your project, just make sure it falls left of centre to still be included in the prize draw. Our sponsor this time is Ike's Art and you could win digital images from this fabulous artist.

I had the chance to work with her 'Alice' image which is her take on the eponymous heroine from Alice in Wonderland and, like my last Alice project, this one's been Gothed up too!!! I have gone with a red and black theme to match the only roll of washi tape that I own (see what i did there!?). I used my Couture Creations 'Tea Party' embossing folder on a peice of white card, coloured it with Fired Brick Distress Ink and highlighted some of the elements with Star Dust Stickles. This was attached to the card and then washi tape used as if holding it in place. I added rolled roses and a couple of Craftwork Cards sentiments that were also coloured to match. The image is coloured with promarkers and a White Signo Uniball for highlights, fussy cut and layered onto black pearlescent paper.

Why not join us at Left of Centre this week with your washi tape/twine/LOC creations! We would love to see what you come up with!
thanks for looking!
