BC Wk. 66 - Andy Warhol Does Halloween

" In The Future Everyone Will Be Famous For 15 Minutes."  - Andy Warhol
Happy Friday! - For this weeks Blogger's Challenge our challenge was to create a card/project using the art style made famous by Andy Warhol.  -  What I know the most about Andy is the famous quote above and this painting of a Campbell's Soup label:
Of course his art work was quite colorful and I've included a couple of samples of the type that I chose to try and imitate with my card above:

I decided to do a Halloween card just because I love Halloween and it lends itself to some really bright bold colors so well.  The Skeleton image is by (Inkadinkado).  I stamped the image seveal times on,
Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango, Gable Green and Orchid Opulence card stock.  Then I punched out squares and lined them up on a piece of Basic Black Card stock.   For some extra fun I added some bright orange rickrack to the sides.
My card base is Basic Black layered with Orchid Opulence that I distressed with OO ink and layered with this wild Halloween Plaid designer paper by ,
(Karen Foster) that I stamped the "Boo" sentiment (Papertrey Ink) in Palette Noir Black ink.  Then I punched out some 3/4" circles of Tangerine Tango and layered them with 1/2" circles of Orchid Opulence and a Black Brad.  My focal image was mounted with foam mounting tape.

Now be sure you check out all the other Warhol creations by clicking on the Blogger's Challenge Icon on my sidebar.  I'm sure they will all be really fun and creative projects.
