Challenge for Red Carpet Studio!


I hope you will join us over at 

for this week's challenge, we are to be inspired by this movie poster for 'the Book of Life ':

I just love the background on this poster, how it blends in to other colors, and I love the heart right there in the center.  Here's how I was inspired:

I used my distress inks for the background, using colors like Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, and Dried Marigold.  I also 'flicked' some water mixed with Perfect Pearls to create the splotches, and they have a shimmer to them, too!

My sun is a free digital image from Paper Smooches, and I colored him with my Copics and then used my Wink of Stella pen for some shimmer.

The sentiment is also from Paper Smooches and after printing it out, I inked the paper with the Wild Honey distress ink, then mounted it with foam adhesive on a scrap of yellow cardstock.

Stop over at

Have a great day!  :)
