Hippy Chick

Good morning folks.
This week has been dreadful over here in Blighty. I know it's the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness but it's getting a bit depressing now, but I'm looking forward to some clear crisp days!
Anyway its time for a new challenge at Cardz4Galz.
For our theme this week we would like to see your projects for -

A TEENAGE GIRL

My offspring and rellies are either too old or too young to come into that category so I struggled to find a suitable image. Just as I was contemplating buying a digi I remembered a stamp from a long time ago I found in a bargain bin and has only been inked up once before to my knowledge! Don't know why because when I'd finished I quite liked the end result.


I used one of Sketch Saturday's sketches and the colours at Copic Norge for this project. The central white panel was embossed using a knit effect EF I bought awhile ago that went with the pattern on her trousers and the DP is a strip of scrap from NitWits that was in my bit's box. The image was stamped then coloured with Copics to match the DP, then fuzzy cut. I had to extend the width of the horizontal mount as the DP was a little too narrow but to soften the impact, I cut a zigzag edge with a strip die. The Happy Birthday is stamped on another scrap of matching paper using a MFT banner die and I die cut the numbers in white then coloured with Copics to match



OK, that's about it from me, please check out the rest of the DT's fab projects here and join us, we'd love to see you.

I'm joining in over at:-
