A while ago, one of my boyfriend's friends asked me to make a birthday card for her World of Warcraft obsessed boyfriend. I could find NO WoW digis, images, colouring pages etc, so it took a while for me to think of what to do lol, so eventually this idea came to me...There's loads of WoW pictures out there designed for use as computer desktop backgrounds, so I found a suitably impressive image of Deathwing, a boss that you have to beat in the game.
I added some white gen pen to his scales to brighten it up a bit, and some Stardust Stickles and Scattered Straw Distress Stickles on the firey bits. I printed the picture out twice and decoupaged the dragon and the mountain he's standing on.
Then I went onto the WoW website, armed with the names of the recipient's characters and printed them out too: this is his warrior.
I printed him out twice and printed the sword out an extra time and decoupaged them; I added gold gel pen and Scattered Straw Distress Stickles to his armour, and gold gel pen, silver gel pen and Glossy Accents and a gem to the sword.
This is his Death Knight.
I printed him out twice and the sword an extra time as well, and used lots of gold gel pen and Scattered Straw Distress Stickles on the armour and sword along with Glossy Accents on the sword.
I came up with this sentiment, I think I must've seen it somewhere before, but it's perfect for any gamer cards! I found a free font online that looks like WoW font.
And here's the finished creation, the characters are mounted on black card so they can open to show off the background. The customer was happy with it, so I hope her boyfriend is as well.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
