Its All a Bit Greek To Me

I've drawn images that have been a challenge before - well yes I've gone and done it again.  Not only was it a challenge to draw this but colour - to get the look I wanted was a nightmare!  It's taken me days!!  Anyway I'm totally happy with the result and am now wondering if I could do a black and white mono version :D

If you love this and any of my other images you can get them now with a discount by quoting my DT's codes.  They all have one and mine is SKIANDREA10.  Use it on Etsy to get yourselves 10% off!

So this is Maddy and her Addies inspired by all those Medusa films and Greek Mythology I watched and read as a child.  She's been coloured with ProMarkers but mainly polychromos pencils.

After all that work I definitely wanted to show her off on a CAS style card.  All I've used is some black card stock to frame her.

Both the card stock and the image have been distressed.  The edges of the image card have also been distressed with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo in from Tim Holtz.

The only embellishment you can see are a few scattered gems of grey, green and black.

This is my inspiration card for my new challenge starting in the SheepSki Designs Facebook Group today.  the them is anything goes as long as you use one of my images and there are some freebies in the group - no excuses then ;)

I'm also sharing in the Facebook group my newly recruited DT's inspiration cards.  So happy to have you on board and working with you lovely ladies
