All about the altering

Good morning!

So did you all have a fab time on the TGF anniversary hop or what?! There is just SO much talent and inspiration out there and I love how these hops showcase all that TGF love! :)

Speaking of TGF love... we've got a new Monday Mania challenge over at CA&Friends and this week it is being hosted by Joni! Joni chose one of my favorite techniques and that is altering or "morphing" two different stamped images together. I decided to combine two of my newest Anyas together for this card and I used Sunshine Anya's head with Flirty Anya's body. Now Anya has those great pigtails and smilie eyes with that fab flirty dress... love it!

I'm tellin' ya, if you haven't tried swapping heads, now is the week to do it! Not only will you have a chance to win a new stamp to add to your altering arsenal but you just might get hooked on the limitless possibilities a simple snip, switch and glue can create. ;)

Toodles!
Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper/sentiment- Echo Park (Walk in the Park)
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Flirty Anya and Sunshine Anya)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox dark brown chalk ink
Creative Cafe button
Copic Spica glitter pen
Copic markers:
skin- E000, E00, E11, R20
hair- E31, E35, E37, E57, E59
clothes- BG02, BG05, BG07, YG01, YG03, YG25, E44, E47, E49

This is something I've definitely had on my "try" list. I wonder if I'm too late for the challenge? I will have to check! Your card is too cute!!! I love how you've toned down the brightness of the paper with sponging around the edges.

Hi Amy,

What a perfect image you created here!! Love the idea of combining stamps, you know, I never thought of that, switching heads, hi hi! But, yes, this head goed perfectly with this body! Love that dress!!! And also how you made the card, I'm crazy about trees shapes! And this card is soooo pretty this way!!!
