Inky Chicks Challenge - Mrs Lovett

Good evening everyone! 

So on this dark Tuesday evening, I hope you're managing ok with all this awful UK weather at the mo - it's just wet, windy and cold. Why not keep snuggled up at home and craft away.  To warm you up I'm here to share my Inky Chicks Design Team card with you, I've used an image from our sponsor this week Alicia Bel. I was lucking enough to have a pick of images from her amazing library of characters. The image I decided on is Mrs Lovett from Sweeny Todd. The reason for my choice is that it reminds me so much of my daughter when she worked at the London Dungeons as an actress - and one of the characters she regularly played was Mrs Lovett.  I've included a fab photo of her in full costume at the bottom holding a pie. Lol x 

So here she is in all her evilness with some delicious finger pies - Mrs Lovett not my daughter...lol.  So the theme this week is --- Anything Goes.

Here's What I did
I used an A5 black card base which I matted and layered complimentary grey patterned card stock. I die cut Mrs Lovett into an oval and coloured her with Copic markers, to add atmosphere I used black pan pastel around her. The finished image was then matted onto a fancy die cut oval and added to my card base over the top of the punched out border.  To finish I added a die cut sentiment, stars and a few sparkly red dots.

Here's everything I used:
Digi Stamp: Alicia Bel 'Mrs Lovett' - you can buy her from here
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Black CS, Hobbycraft 'Monochrome' Paper Pad, Craftwork Cards Digital Super Smooth CS
Copics: Skin - E0000, E000, E00, R20 / Dress - R000, R02, R20, R14, R27, R29, R38 / Hair - C0, C1, C2, C3 ,C5, C7, 100 / Boots - C0, C2, C5 / Pies & Plate - Y000, Y02, Y17, Y38

Other: Black Pan Pastel, Docraft Gems, CraftArtist 2
