I don't know what's going on, but I feel like I've been riding the struggle bus for the past couple of challenges. This time I just couldn't figure out how to incorporate the cue. I sat and stared at it for several days until I finally decided to just throw caution to the wind and go for a crazy interpretation. What's more thrilling than a good villain?
Maleficent has always been one of my favorite Disney villains. She's just so powerful and when I was a kid, she scared the crap out of me. I think that qualifies as thrilling. I used this picture for my inspiration and came up with this...
I wanted her to be surrounded by a blossom of green fire, but it kind of ended up looking more like she's being birthed from a cabbage. Oh well, nothing is ever perfect.
So here she is. I simply stamped her on a panel cut from a Stitched Rectangle die and then colored her in with my copics. I added the lines to her horns using a white gel pen and then moved on to my fire/cabbage. I used my lightest color to lightly sketch in the basic shape and then went back in with my darker colors to add a little depth and dimension. I finished it off by going back over the whole thing with my lightest color again. Yep, definitely a cabbage.
I added a little shadowing under the image to ground it and then stamped my sentiment beneath. I adhered my panel using my glue runner and that was it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
