A couple years ago I did a sample color comparison of the four different Copic grey families using Creeper Madden. Over time I have been able to finish coloring three of them and get each on a card of their own. During my latest desk clean up I found the final Madden with her W grey/black hair and wanted to see what I could do with her. So I hopped over to the Splendid Stamping blog to see what challenges are going on and when I spotted the Autumn Colors Retro Fresh challenge I knew I was in business. To give Madden an outfit more suitable for cool fall weather I did a head swap with Creeper Sunday. That scarf was the clincher because I really wanted to add some sparkly gold polka dots to it, LOL!
I also played with a lot of dies on this card too. Most of the time I am too lazy to want to pull out the Cuttlebug but I really should use them more often because I love what they add to the scene. :)
Alrighty, I'm off today so I guess I should see what chores need doing before I find something fun to do.
