People Are Strange!

It's Desert Islands Crafters Challenge time again and we have such a fun itinerary for you!  Our image sponsor is The Stamping Boutique and here's the itinerary:

1.  Go Goth/Emo
2.  Black & White & One Other Color
3.  Use chipboard OR corrugated cardboard
4. Add text
5. Based on a song
6. Include an animal
7. Crowns or tiaras
8. Dry embossing
9. Use a stencil
10. Something funny/humor

Here's my card using Emo Alice and #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10!

Now this was a fun card to create!  I typed up the lyrics for The Doors "People Are Strange" as my background and just repeated it to cover the amount of space needed.

Here's what I used to create this card:

Bazzill® Cardstock
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White
Scrap of Cardboard
Copic® Markers and Airbrush System
May Arts Ribbon® Puffy Bats
DecoArt® Gesso
Tim Holtz® idea-ology™ adornments
Beacon Adhesive® Zip Dry™
Foam Mounting Squares

Here's what I did to create this card:

Print out digital image and color with markers, trim with scissors
Adhere crown adornment to skull  
Type lyrics to song and print
Create card base with a tent fold
Trim and adhere lyrics to card base
Airbrush a few "Splats" over lyrics with red marker
Trim and gesso cardboard piece, use heat gun to speed drying process
Airbrush "Bite Me" with marker
Adhere cardboard piece to card base
Adhere bats
Using foam squares, attach Emo Alice

Doesn't it look like she's just spray-painted "Bite Me" on the side of a building.  She has that look on her face like "look what I just did!"  That's it for today!  I do hope you'll play along with our challenge, this will be a fun one!  Thanks for stopping by today!
