I hope that everyone had a nice holiday or break last week!! I know I'm looking forward to a weekend with LOTS of crafting ahead of me!! NYE weekend is one of my favorites of the year. I just find it extremely relaxing. So I'm hoping to create, create, create!!
But today I have a creation with one of my absolute favorite of Maigan-Lynn's girls! Victoria. I know, I know....I've gone on about her before so I'll stop yapping and show you what I did!
I have this killer paper from Creative Imaginations - Marah Johnson line. So I grabbed that, and some coordinating cardstock. I usually do at least a 5x5 card when working with the mermaids as they tend to take over a smaller card. And they need their room to groove!!! They need to be shown off!!
But I digress again! =) I started with my base layer of PTI Scarlet, followed by a misc brand of chocolate brown cardstock, followed by a black and white comic book page, followed and of center some Love, Elsie paper (the graph-like paper), followed by the CI - Marah Johnson paper that simply states "I'm Kind of...A Big Deal". And you know what? That's exactly the attitude that I'd expect from Victoria!!Whom I stamped with SU! dye ink in Chocolate Chip and colored her with my Copics and gold paint pen. I then sparkled up the underside of her umbrella and puffed and glossed up her hair bow. I added 3 copper brads to balance out the glittered umbrella just slightly and voila!
I hope everyone has a safe and very happy NEW YEAR!!! See you in 2010!!!
