Now kiss me goodbye

For the last week in April, the final challenge for Gingersnap Creations in the Far East theme is a color challenge of Red and Gold. (GC100). Come visit and join the fun. You can also see wonderful pieces from the other Design team members. Its been an exciting and fun time completing my first month on this Design Team. All the new friends I've met have been amazing and sooo supportive.
Well, for this week's project, it really is mostly red and gold. Yet, somehow it just needed black, so I added that too. The starting point was the red and gold patterned paper that I overstamped with the black cherry blosson. I framed it with some black shiny pattern paper and my base was complete. The vintage semi nude beauty image from Artchix Studio, has all her "special" parts obsured with glittered up feathered buttereflies. The word banner "Now kiss me good-by" is on gold and has red german scrap details. Some more red german scrap to top the piece was needed. Now for the sparkle....the gold flowers with the black rhinestone centers were actually clear. I used a Sharpie marker to make them gold. I use Sharpies to change the color of everything. I once used a black Sharpie to change the color of  a nice sized piece of fabric for a piece. LOL. A little decal crown and tattoo and sprinkles of glitter and I was ready to kiss this piece goodbye.
Kiss, Kiss ....
Good-by for now, gerri

  2. She is so very exotic, Geri ... the red, gold and black theme suit the piece to a 'T'. Congratulations on being published in Stampington ... I'm so excited for you. It must be such a thrill to see your work in a magazine. I would be walking around with it open in my hands for days! Enjoy your time on the design team .. it's special. Hugs from Mexico, Donna

    I love when femmes are used in artwork. This is ever so slightly saucy which is fun.

  17. This is wonderful--I really like how you stayed in the color family with the butterflies as well. Fab! I'm also a huge fan of the sharpies--a while back I bought them in loads of colors, they've been great for some quick fixes. =)
