Not Amused...

OK, fun inspirational challenges leading me to a little quirky play with Mo Manning's image - "Bossy".  I printed her out twice - one for the background and one to color and fancy cut to layer.  I sculpted the image to give her dimension by dry embossing the focal image and crown from the back.   The background was created by adding a shadow around the image to help add depth, then with two shades of light blue Copics I created the rain and the puddle bottom right.  Finally, using Distress Inks, I sponged in the background color from the edge toward the image.  The crown was gold heat embossed on blue CS and all kinds of gemstone bling added in honor of the Diamond Jubilee.  All the cut out pieces were attached with foam tape to maintain the curvature.  Finally the focal image panel was layered on a blue panel and then the red and white polka dot DP from Basic Grey.  Specific sources can be found below.
