Fat Page

Yes, I know it is Wednesday...but I like Fat-Tastic Tuesday.

You ask what is Fat-Tastic TuesdayFat-Tastic Tuesday is a challenge blog that does fat pages.

What are fat pages?  4" x 4" pieces of art. 

I had done swaps before with fat pages and have always had fun with them.  But I really like this.  I make the little pieces of art and get to save them.  I am making them into a book.  I even picked up rings for the book today while I was out.  I have the cover and back started but can't decide what to do with them.

This week (actually their challenges are every 2 weeks) the challenge is red, white and blue.  Use the sketch as a guideline and add metal.  No problem I thought.  I am going to the craft store this morning and I will find something metal.  WRONG!!  I couldn't find a thing. But I did come up with a few things that I will say fit when I got home.

Here is the sketch

Here is what I did with it...

Ok so here are the deets on the card.
I used an image I won at Fat-Tastic Tuesday from Lacy Sunshine, called Lady Liberty.  I colored the image with a combination of Copic Markers ( E00, E11. R20), Prismacolor pencils (903, 915, 920, 942, 992), and Gel Pens (white, red, and METALLIC gold).  The image is 2" about challenging to color!! 

I used American Craft Glitter Tape (Rouge, White and Sky).  They have a nice metallic look to them. 

The papers are from AC Moore open stock.  

I added Glossy Accents to the glasses.  

While I was out, I got a new die cut, Spellbinders Nestabilites Star Circles.  I saw this and knew it was what I needed for this card.  And the die cuts are made of metal.  

I have also entered this card in...
