Call Me...

Don't you just love that Blondie song (ohh Dating myself!!) I decided to make a project for MFT Guest Designer; and I dug into my cupboards to find something to work with & I found this little address Rolodex YEAH it sang to me for MFT's CALL ME - which is very popular because it appears to be sold out; I hunted the site and couldn't find a link for you!

For this project I stamped the image on Gina K's 120lb pure luxury paper. I then stamped the image again on the same paper so I could colour and piece "who's that girl" onto the chair. She is coloured with copics and I added a little glitter on her shirt; I tried to free hand 1/2 a heart - or it's just a wobbly circle!!! For the hot pink phone I used an atyou spica gel pen then on the rotary dial (remember those too?!) I added some crystal effects.

For the chair I coloured it with lyra pencils and mineral spirits so it would stay soft; and look a little worn. Don't you LOVE how the chair doesn't move when she sits on it - I like to image my chairs don't either!!

The wall is coloured with SU's pretty in Pink chalk very lightly daubed on then I erased it a little so it wasn't too bright. The floor is also SU's chalk; chocolate chip and black mixed together then I washed over the floor with Pearlescent watercolour in brown to try and give it the effect of hardwood flooring.

The image is mounted on SU's basic black then mounted on chatterbox black polka dot paper. This is mounted on SU's Pink Pirouette paper which I mounted on 2 coasters for stability on the roladex. On the back page I embossed Sizzix "friend" sponged the piece with Pink Pirouette ink. To finish off the image I added some Prima's with Stamping Bella Pearls.

For the front and back of the Rolodex I embossed Pink Pirouette cs with swiss dots, and then added the word with Basic Grey sticker letters in black.

This was a fun project to do; a departure from cards - Thanks for the great challenge Kim, I loved using only Brown, Pink, Black, Grey & White.

Thanks for stopping by,

Dana
