Dare to be Remarkable!

Happy Friday everyone!  It’s the start of a new challenge over at Left Of Center and this time we are sponsored by Sassy Studios.  Sassy is the perfect word to describe their digistamps – those girls have got some attitude!  The theme is “Girly” and I’ve chosen Sassy Ursula for my card.
You remember Ursula the Sea Witch from Disney’s Little Mermaid?  This is Ursula in her prime, all glamorous and ready to raise havoc – those tentacles are going to be in everyone’s business.  I enjoyed colouring her in with Spectrum Noirs; I used the Blue-Greys for her dress and Cool Greys for her tentacles.  For the skin tones I moved over to the Promarker cool greys.  The colouring process was very therapeutic – I got lost in my own little world...
I cut her out and mounted her onto a piece of marbled paper from a pad that Joanna Sheen used to produce some time ago – I thought it looked a bit “under the sea” – which I bordered in some textured gold foil card.  I used the same card, die-cut into a spiky circle with a Nestabilities die, to mount the sentiment – also die-cut into a circle with just a touch of Weathered Wood DI blended over the edge. 
So that’s my contribution for this challenge.  Why not hop over to Left Of Center and see what my DT colleagues have made?  Better yet, why not join in the fun and enter the challenge?  I’d love to see what you come up with!
Crafty hugs,
