Spring Break Creeper style

Welcome to the weekend everybody!

I've got another day off and I plan on enjoying every minute of it... hope the same can be said for all of you too. :)

Sooooo... as soon as I got the new Creeper Crew set I totally fell in love with little Noah and his awesome dreadlocks. The only problem was, that it made me want a little dreadhead Creeper girlie really, really bad! This of course, had me playing around with the idea of altering Noah into a girl but I just hadn't found the time to give it a go.
Not until I saw this week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at TGF that is! The theme is 'Spring Break' and the idea of creating a Jamaican vacation with Noah and his new gal pal was too much to resist. So I inked up Noah, wiped away his face and body, then stamped up Creeper Sasha (minus her boots) onto a separate piece of cardstock. I used my light box to trace Creeper Friday's face onto my new girl and I also used it to trace Noah's flip flip feet below the dress and connected the lines to finish off the rest of her legs. Tuts on this technique can be found here and here... Once all the tracing was done I simply colored her up, cut out both the head and body then glued the two together. Now Noah can walk the sandy beaches with his special gal. Awwwww.... :)
As happy as I am with how she turned out, I would still love, love, love to see an official deadlocked Creeper girl sometime in the future (fingers and toes crossed!) Oh and did you see the tiny pearls that I added to the ends of her hair? That little detail totally makes me smile! LOL

Love it! In fact I like your new girlie dreaded versino better than Noah!


gobeagirl said...

Hi Amy, I love your Creepers. I am so with you on the need for a female Noah. I think your girl is fab! I really really love the beads in her hair too. I was reading your post and Madison said "Mom, I think you and Amy made the same cards." You will laugh next week when you see the card she is talking about. I was in the mood yesterday to color up Noah as well and now he is all ready to go. However my poor guy doesn't have a sweetie to be with though. lol...Have a great day off. So far we have sunshine even though they say we are suppose to have thunderstorms. Hugs, Lisa
