Shy Heidy...

This little sprite looks really, really shy to me!  And to have to go door to door and talk to strangers??? Down right scary!
But the change of seasons brings the excitement of choosing a new persona & costume for the ultra fun tradition of dressing up and filling our little buckets with candy!


  • This image is "Heidi Dazzlebud", a little sprite from Lacy Sunshine Stamps.
  • I used Paper Tole Technique on the leaves - 'paper sculpted' the punched images.  The layers were both glued & elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the focal image.
  • Scrap DP from stash has been used for the strip under the ribbon and the punched leaves.
  • The inside is made with the left over papers from the front.
  • McGill punch used for the leaves.
  • Ribbon from stash.

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