Here is my entry for the Simply Betty challenge using Voodoo Corinne on the Simply Betty stamps blog.
Click on the SBS image to go to the October Fanpage Challenge.
I chose Voodoo Corinne because I loved the idea of being able to create a real hand made voodoo doll!!
Firstly, I coloured in the image with ProMarkers concentrating more on the gorgeous flame orange hair.
I mounted the image on to black card as it showed off the colour of the hair more.
I then matted and layered on to orange paper which I inked around the edged with purple ink, then on to orange striped paper.
How I made the voodoo doll - I glued together wooden coffee stirrers to form a stick man then wrapped white string around and around to for a 3D doll form. I then inked it with Old Paper, Vintage Photo and Pumice Stone Distress Inks.
I decided to cut off the legs of the doll as it was too big for the project but decided it looked better with the hanging string.
I stuck pins in to the doll and attached it to the corner of the card. I added black spiders around the image and doll to finish.
