Simply Betty Stamps - October Fanpage Challenge - Voodoo Corinne

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. 



Ingredients -
* ProMarker -
Hair - bright orange,honeyvcomb sunflower, 
Skin - ivory, satin.
Outfit - amethyst, lilac, pear green
* coffee stirrers.
* string.
* Distress Inks - Dusty Concord, Old Paper, Vintage Photo, Pumice Stone.
* 3 red pins.
* black plastic spiders.

Thanks for looking - really loved creating this one. Toodles. x
