Hang in There...

I needed a "Hang in There!" card and 
this image and sentiment were perfect!
Image provided by Kris at Imagine That 
Aud Sentiments' current challenge is for "Animal[s] plus a Sentiment".  Such an easy challenge - can't imagine anyone in the stamping world not having an animal of some kind!  You can submit up to 5 entries for a chance at the prize and you have till next Tuesday before the deadline!  If you are in a "Brain Drain" and need inspiration - come check out the inspiration from the DT!  Also, check the rules and then git crackin'!

You can find this image HERE

  • Image is "Honey & Boo Balloons" at Imagine That - Digis by Kris
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to 3D her head, bow, skirt & balloons. 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.
  • Sentiment I used, plus others, are sold in the bundle with the image.
  • Her little dress was Paper Pieced with the same papers used for the mat & shaded with Copics.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP used for the mats from Kate & Co's /My Minds Eye - "Oxford Lane".
  • Paper scraps left drom the front are used for the inside.

  • Yellow/Stitched Ribbon from stash.
  • Cloud shapes from a die ?? no clue whose?
  • Paper Piercing was done on image panel and both mats using a Tim Holtz Piercing Tool and his Ruler with piercing holes in it.
  • Uniball Signo White Pen used for highlights on the balloons & the bear's eyes.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
