Dressed to Impress

Hi again! Today has been semi productive as I tried my hand at stepping further out of my comfort zone on an altered art project. This week's theme at Anyone for Anya? was Weddings! the ABC Challenge Blog N for Not Just One (3 or more embellishments), and 7 Kids College Fund was 'Anything but a Card' I thought I'd give it a shot and make a door sign thingy for the bride's dressing room loaded down with embellishments and this is what I came up with:
C.C. Tuesday
C.C. Tuesday
C.C. Tuesday was a bit too small so I stamped her scanned her into my computer and made her a bit larger, this also allowed me to print her multiple times to one sheet rather than trying to stamp her over and over again. Sounds brilliant right? I thought so, until, unfortunately when I added the stickles to her tutu the ink from my printer began to run so I ended up with this dalmationy spotty thing going on -__-. Oh well, as you can see, my resolve wavered and I gave the 3D paper piecing thing a shot again, it went SOOOO much better this time. Turns out just as I suspected, I was overthinking the whole process! Other than the dalmation tutu I'm pretty pleased at how this turned out! Along with the challenge at Anyone for Anya mentioned above, I also plan to enter her in the Simon Says... Flowers! as well as the FFF Paper Piecing  challenge over at Splendid Stamping along with this little lady:
 Cheeky Geeky
Back to my SAFE PLACE! lol My absolute favorite TGF stamp ever takes center stage with her tie, skirt, and head band paper pieced from My Mind's Eye DP. As you can see, I'm also lovin the delicate words die from TGF as well as several different roses from iamroses with plenty of stickles! I love this card so much! Thanks for stopping by!
