Just a quickie to share with everyone the fantastic Monday Mania challenge that Sheng is hosting over at the CA&Friends blog this week. Its all about the buttons for this one and the funkier the better according to Sheng! :)
Well the funkiest buttons that I have are these Jenni Bowlin ones, and their vintage vibe seemed to go perfectly with the new Sassafras Indie Girl papers that I've fallen in love with. All that I had left to do was figure out which stamp would complete the scene perfectly.
As I was flipping through my Wild Sprouts, little Miko caught my eye... probably because I think her dress looks a bit old fashioned. But because I wanted her to have wide open eyes for this card I knew that I would have to do a bit of altering before she would be card ready. And since I was already wiping away her eyes I decided to also wipe away the heart barrette from the one side of her hair and draw in a matching bow instead. Then I just used my light box to trace DeeDee sprouts eyes onto Miko's face.
If you're feeling adventurous and have some good black drawing pens (I use Copic multiliners) this kind of altering is only a bit more involved than a head swap but can be a lot of fun!
Ok, time for you to go dig through that jar of buttons and see what you can come up with for the challenge! :)
