* Crafts Galore Encore: Super Girl


June brings another Anything Goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The sponsor this month is Vera Lane Studio who is offering the winner 2 fabulous digi sets from their Etsy Store.

Janet, the owner and artist of Vera Lane Studio, kindly gave the DT images to work with. I chose Super Girl and here are my projects:

How cute is Super Girl! This digi set has 2 girl images and 2 super sentiments. For this first card, I teamed Super Girl with a telephone box from the London digi set. I coloured the images with Copic markers and added some white Posca pen highlights. I fussy cut the images, leaving a thin white border, and they were popped on foam tape to give some dimension. 
The background is Distress Oxides, in Fired Brick, Mustard Seed and Faded Jeans, blended through a swirl stencil by Inkylicious.
I used the Girl Power sentiment, cut it into strips and inked it in black. I matted my background onto layers of red, yellow and blue card.

My second Super Girl card teams 'every day' Super Girl with buildings from the Tall Town digi set:

I chose to colour my 'normal' super girl in the same primary colours as before and placed her in front of a group of buildings which I left uncoloured. I love the contrast this gives. I grounded the images with a strip of torn black and white washi tape and matted the background onto red textured card.

Many thanks to Janet at Vera Lane Studio for generously sponsoring this challenge. We hope you'll pop over to the shop to see the many cute and quirky stamp sets on sale.

Also, please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DTs wonderful designs.
