Sally & Charlie...

Image provided by Lizzy Love at Oddball Art Co.
New challenge at 613 Ave C is a CYOC  {Create Your Own Challenge} - yea!!  I will post the chart below that Kathi created for us... so fun!  Use the link above to go see what the Dessign Team created for inspiration - some incredible pieces from this talented crew!  You can submit up to three projects for a chance at the prize and for recognition by the Design Team.

From this CYOC chart I chose to use an Easel card, 
a "Thinking of You" sentiment and gold/metallic embellishments.

  • "Sally and Charlie - Fairy Girl and Friend" is one of Lizzy Love's creations that can be found here at Oddball Art Co.  in her Etsy Shop.  {LOve Oddball Art!!!!!!}
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to 3D her head, bow, her wings and arm and the dragon's wings. 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 on the inside is from All Night Media
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP is from the 'Notable' Collection by My Minds Eye. 
  • The mat CS is from stash.
  • Basecard is 5.5"  x 6" White "Recollections" from Michaels'.
  • Gold Leaf  applied using Duo Glue to all the spots on 'Charlie'... they show up best in this photo: 

  • Gold Metallic starfish from stash.
  • The 'pulled' burlap, twine and button tied with brown waxed linen are all from stash.

  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
