Chick in Pants...

 613 Ave C starts a new challenge today - ATG /optional twist of a Shaker Card!  The sponsor I get to work with is one of my favorites - A Day For Dasies.  ADFD provided this image for me: "Chick with Pants".  It is well worth your time to see what the DT has done with their images.  Then, submit your own works of art - up to three entries for a chance of a prize.  Go for it!

  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give him dimension.  I printed 2 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut the top image and 'paper sculpted' it.  The 2nd, bottom layer was fussy cut leaving a small halo of white then it was glued to a scrap of black paper and cut again leaving a small black halo.   The halos allow the image to visually stand out from the background.  [Thanks Bonnie, for this technique idea!]  The layers were glued to each other in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • Recollections "Ivory" for the card base.
  • Watercolor paper used for the background.

  • The shear, blue ribbon is tied in a simple square knot & is from stash.
  • Duo glue and gold foil have been added to tiny dots in the background and used to create the sentiment at the bottom.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Background created with Magenta's "Nuance" water color crystals - [Jade & Grass Green]
  • Images hand colored with Copics:
