Hello everyone!
We are at the end of the month and it's time for a little reminder on our current challenge at the Dream Factory.
This month's movie is...

Mardi Gras, Carnival, Venice, Love, Vintage etc.

I made two cards. 
Since I couldn't decide which one to pick, I'll show you both!

I found this scene on the Internet. I drew the picture by hand on a piece of watercolor paper and painted it with felt-tip pens and water brush pen. I used black cardstock and Cloud White ink for the sentiment, cut it into tiny labels and pasted them on the image. Finally I mounted the image, which I backed with black cardstock, on a white card base. 

The background for the second card also comes from the internet - we don't necessarily have a stamp for every theme - right?!!! 
This time I copied the image from the PC using tracing paper and pencil - it didn't have to be very detailed! 
Before transferring the image to the card, I stamped the young lady and masked her. 
The dog also comes from the net. :) I could have used a digi-stamp, but I didn't feel like it!
Except for the sky, I colored everything with alcohol markers - I have a pretty good range of colors now! ;)  
 ...the sky is colored using a water brush pen and light blue felt-tip.
I stamped the sentiment, cut the image to size, backed it with black cardstock and then glued it on a 
card base. 

Ah yes, I also made a little hat for the girl! -- but only afterwards -- cut out and pasted on!

There are two weeks left until the end of the challenge...
Have fun!
