Follow The Yellow Brick Road - Blog Hop

Hi Everyone

Welcome to the "Follow The Yellow Brick Road" Blog Hop hosted by Sassy Studio Designs featuring 5 new images from the Wizard of Oz.  If this is your first stop you may want to go back and start at Sassy Studio Designs and follow along to see what all the talented designers have done with these great new images, not to mention that there are prizes! I have listed the order of all the stops on this hop at the end of this post.

I love all 5 of the images in this new release, but I was secretly thrilled that I was allocated 'Evanora' to make a card with (she is my favourite.)  From the new film 'Oz: The Great and Powerful", Evanora (the Wicked Witch of the East) is played by Rachel Weisz and she has the most stunning costume - I've tried my best to do it justice.  Here is my card.

The image is coloured completely with ProMarkers.  Here is a list of colours I used:

  • Dress - Grass, Ice Grey 4 and 'Stardust' stickles to add some 'bling'
  • Feathers - Bright Green, Grass and Lush Green (more 'Stardust' stickles)
  • Cape - Ice Grey 2, Ice Grey 4 and more stickles.
I made a Center Step card to showcase this image, the tutorial for which can be found here.  The backgound paper is from a DCWV stack called 'Black Currant' (one of my faves), the image was cut with my Cameo using the print 'n' cut and offset feature, the sentiment was also done with my Cameo using the Chomas pen holder and a Copic fine nib inking pen (available at Hobby Lobby.)  The font that I used is called 'Harry Potter' and is available (free) at Dafont.  Here is a look at the sentiment on the front and on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed creating it.  Your next stop is with Ruza.
