Oddball Girl... Lucy

You must know I have a proclivity for choosing oddball images... so what is better than a place called Oddball Art to find an image that calls my name!  This little punkin' seemed to need a place to sit, dangle her legs and miss her friend - so I drew a wooden post off a pier for her to sit on... you will have to take my word that's what it is!  LOL!
Lizzy Love's "Big Eye Girl - Lucy" was provided by Oddball Art 

613 Ave C'c current challenge is to
"Create Your Own Challenge" using this fun chart created
by Kathi Silvia - what a creative lady she is!  I chose the following:
#1 Digital image & DP  #2 Die cut  #3 Glossy Accents & Dry Embossing  #4 Faux Stitching & Buttons  #5 Base card is a Square Card

Do go see what the DT has done with this challenge - fun stuff!
You have till May 30th to create up to three entries for a chance at the prize - so get your mojo in gear and try out the fun!

  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to 3D her head and clothing. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the image.  The layers were both glued & elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.
  • Pier and post hand drawn with Micron 0.1 black pen.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP used for layers from American Crafts' "Hip, Hip Hooray" collection.
  • Inside simply decorated with recycled bits from the construction on the front.  
  • Three button brads from stash
  • Die Cut: [Faux] Stitched Mats - Rectangles /Rounded Corners from Lil' Inker Designs. 
  • Glossy Accents on the little yellow heart on her shirt.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
