Monday mania

Well hello Monday, nice to see ya again. :)

Today's a quick one but a fun one... Mag is hosting this week's Monday Mania over at CA&Friends and her challenge is to alter a stamp and take inspiration from a photo. I just had to play along because both of those really appeal to me. :)
When I was thinking about who to alter this time round the new Wild Sprout Audrey digi came to mind and I thought it would be fun to take her out of her tomboy clothes and get her all dolled up in a more girly girl look. So I removed her hat and clothes in photoshop, printed her out and then drew in the top of her head. Next I grabbed WS Stella and inked her up, though I did wipe away her letter and the heart at her neckline before stamping. Then I colored everything, cut off Stella's head (sorry Stella!) and replaced it with Audrey's head. I think this little tomboy cleans up real good... just look at her working that sparkly dress! ;)

Now it's your turn to get creative and do a bit of altering and I really can't wait to see what stamp combinations everyone comes up with! :)

Check ya later!

I need to move next door to you and become your aprrentice. I LOVE your work! BTW, if you can't sell your alterables, you should just sell them as paper piecing dresses, and I'll buy them, cut them out, and attach them to my TGF images! hehehe ;)
