simply B stamps 'Betty the fortune teller' challenge

For this challenge I chose some grey slightly corrugated card to make the card base- cutting a circle aperture in the front and then fashioned a base out of the same card for front and back.
I thought the paper backing for the image suited it 100% as it reflected the blue used for the tablecloth.
I coloured the image using pro markers
, with metallic pro marker accents on the earrings of the fortune teller , and glossy accents for the table top, crystal ball and eyes. I raised the image up from the paper and also made sure there was a gap between the paper backing and the crystal ball 'frame'
I glued diamantes on the 'ball', and cut two flourishes for the base. I also added a Halloween tree dress it up button between the two flourishes.
I mounted the sentiment on a luggage label and threaded through blue ribbon with a Tibetan charm .

Hope you like!

  1. Wow I'm astounded at what you can do with metallic promarkers. I've been thinking about getting the metallic ones, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
