Hot n Spicy!

The DCM team have issued a group dare this week - hot 'n spicy. We can interpret that any way we like so here's mine - you can click through for a closer view...



The chilli pepper was hand drawn and coloured with Prismacolor pencils blended with Sansodor. I messed up what I wanted to do a couple of times which resulted in it being cut out and used in a different way than I originally planned! Still, I quite like the extra little bit of dimension!

I used the faux burnt edges technique (tutorial here at Cornish Heritage Farms) and I thought a stamp to say the chilli had passed the censors in Bombay would be a fun finishing touch:o)

Supplies: Weathered Wood backgrounder (CHF), Passed Censor stamp (Alluring Impressions), Prismacolor pencils/OMS/stump, Tim Holtz distress inks (Fired Brick, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain), Tria marker, Copic blender pen

Hope your weekend has been a good one, may the spice be with you ;o)

You hand drew that chilli :stands back in amazement: well done you, it is fantastic. I thought you'd got it off a paper or the web. Wow Joanne, you need to do more hand drawing, you are good.

Great card, I like the censorship bit too.
