Well, my world wind adventure has started. Welcome to my 1st challenge with The Stamping Chef as a Design Team member.

*** This is 'Bad Habit' and is available in the 'New Release' section of The Stamping Chef store with 20% off for this weekend only.

As always, this is another amazing, fun and quirky design from The Stamping Chef. 

I started by colouring the skin and hair and decided right from the start she was going to be a red head.

I wanted the outfit to be shades of grey and black.

The colour palette of this creation was very minimal as I think the design speaks for itself and didn't want to take away from the design with the colour. 

For the background, I embossed a piece of black gloss card then sanded it back. I stuck the 'Bad Habit' image over the top using foam pads. 

For the backing paper, I wanted to create a disco lights feel as though the character was sitting in a bar environment, so chose a red/black/orange spotty paper. I decided it needed something in between the black swirls and spotty background so chose a white pearl paper to tone down the sharpness.

I didn't want a lots of small, fussy embellishments to go with this image so chose the huge silver hexagon embellishment to feature on its own with a length of red and black ribbon.
