My Tribe/ Indigenous People's Day

I grew up in a tribe of crafty women. Thanks Mom, and Grandmoms, GGrandmoms, and Aunts and GAunts all.
I was really excited to find a Beadazzler stud setter in the Kiwanis Thrift shop for $1.50 including templates and studs.
I created this card for the Created Byhand Tuesday Challenge around the theme and the stud.( must find some rhinestones)
I thought the image of these paint splattered pants caught the essence of my tribal costume. I colored the background with alcohol inks. I started with putting drops of the inks i had on the felt applicator, and added some blending solution and pounced on the glossy card stock. I wasn't happy with my limitied colors so i pressed my Copic markers into the felt and that got me the colors I wanted.
The goddess was stamped in black and embossed with Goddess gold powder. The mini alphabet stamp, lower left, added using my new Cathy Allen stamp positioner, and the bigger tribe lettering embellished with my trusty stardust pens. All tribal members carry stardust pens at all times.
