I started with some watercolor paper and smooshed and splattered ink onto it. I toner foiled some of the background stripes from Deb Weiers’ Wonky Backgrounds and glued a part of the negative foil onto the background with some collage medium. I peeled up the plastic while still a bit damp and rubbed some more ink over it to get that grungy look.
I fussy-cut then glued the figure to the background. I outlined her with my Stabilo black pencil and used a small wet brush to expand the shadow around her to make her pop and to add dimension. I cut a circle out of the striped background paper and glued it onto a couple of same sized circles cut from heavy cardstock to give it some dimension. Using a white and black colored pencil I created shadow and light then grunged it up a bit with some ink and glued it down to a bunch of silver thread.
I cut out some of the words from the Wonky Backgrounds, popping them up on heavy cardstock too. I altered one of the words to read inSANITY, outlined with black pen and red pencil, then inked the edges. I also added a piece of blue twine to one of the words.
I cut a small circle out of the Wonky Backgrounds paper, added shadow to it and glued it down to the card panel. I glued the words down then outlined the whole thing with my black Stabilo pencil and smeared it a bit. I cut a mat piece out of black cardstock and glued the panel down to that then popped the whole thing up onto a Kraft card base. I added the small dots of dimensionals and she was done!
The packs I used are:
I hope you can find some crafty time this weekend!
