InStyle Stamps Inspiration Challenge

Hi all,

Welcome to another Inspiration Challenge Wednesday with the InStyle Stamps blog!  We usually have a picture as our inspiration, but this month, we were challenged to make a project inspired by a children's book!  The book I chose is one of my all-time FAVES, Artemis Fowl!  It is a series of books about a child mastermind/genius.  Here is a shot of the cover of the first book:

So, this kid, Artemis, is a complete computer genius (among MANY other things), so I chose that part as my inspiration.  I chose the digi Maggie to represent this book - even though it is a male character in the book, and a female image, I figure it passes the test anyway. 

My card base is Kraft CS, then a layer of Urban Oasis DSP with a Basic Black mat, and I rounded off one of the corners of the DSP.  I also added a strip of gray DSP along the bottom.  I used some new ribbon adhesive from Glue Arts with some black grosgrain ribbon and made a ruffle across the DSP.  I added some black SU buttons to the curve with mini glue dots.

I printed Maggie out onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with Square Nesties, and layered that onto a black square.  I also added some glimmer with a Sakura glaze pen across the computer screen. 

Don't forget to stop over on the ISS blog to enter your card inspired by a children's book, and to check out the DT samples!  You have a chance to win 2 free digis if your creation uses an ISS image, or 1 free digi if you use an outside image!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
