Katniss is Back

"Welcome, welcome, welcome."   It's time for the 190th Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge at Sassy Studio Designs.  Calling all tribute crafters. This week's challenge is "Summer Reading" (base your project on your favorite book).  I never really got into reading a lot of books.  But then I got hooked on "the Hunger Games".  I have read all three books in the series at least 3 times and have seen the first movie 3 times (also got the DVD at midnight when it came out. hahaha)  I have a count down on my phone for the next movie "Catching Fire" (100 days).  So it was obvious that for this challenge, my book of choice would be something with "the Hunger Games".  So this is what I created.




Stuff I Used:
Image-Katniss Girl of Fire digital image by Sassy Studio Designs
Colored with Copics
Skin-E00, E11
Lips-R11, R14
Eyes-B91, B95
Hair-C3, C5, C7, C9
Dress-C1, C3, B91
Background-copy of "Catching Fire" movie poster
Cardstock-Staples, Recollections
Circles cut with a Martha Stewart circle cutter & SLICE 12 x 12 glass cutting mat
Edge inking-Studio g pigment inks
Sentiment-Computer generated

I made a circle easel card.  I tried to tie in some things from the 2nd book (Catching Fire).
Tick Tock
3rd Quarter Quell
the clock (hence the round card)
the white dress

I popped up the Katniss image and sentiment on homemade tan foam squares.

I hope if you haven't read the book, this makes you want to read it. And if you have, that you will get everything.  I hope I have done it justice.

Thanx for looking and please comment.
