I colored her with copics. I don't have many so I wasn't able to do all that fancy blending and shading but I love how smoothly they go on the paper. I cut her out then used foam tape to attach to my card. That cool skull paper is from an older Halloween pack from Target and the base CS is a pink color from my stash. I added pink ribbon and another little stick pin I put together. I used another skull bead and some other small purplish/pinkish beads. The pin part was rather long so I twisted it up in a curl. The puffy alpha letter are from making memories and they have a cool spider web pattern on them.

I'm on a polka dot kick and thought Paprika's rain coat would look so cute with polka dots so I decided to try out the paper piecing technique. This is my second attempt at trying this and I am rather pleased with how it turned out. My first attempt several months ago was a disaster and I couldn't understand how anyone could do it, but I gave it another shot and I like it, yay!
What are you waiting for, hurry on over to the Challenge Blog and see what wonderful samples the DT has waiting for you then grab your supplies and join in the fun.

She's holding a star and I used polka dot papers (little tiny moons?). I colored her with pencils and added some baker's twine and metal tab with the word 'fun' on it. Isn't she adorable with her little fishy friend?
I will also be entering this card into the following challenges:
Just Keep On Creating - challenge #1 anything goes
The current challenge at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls is to create a dark Easter project. I've used Ty the Bunnysaurus from SimplyBStamps. Ty was a freebie a little while ago so I'm not sure if he's still available :( He's rockin' the bunny/dino suit wouldn't you say?!
I've colored him with pencils in mostly grey with a splash of teal :) Then I fussy cut him out. I used my cuttlebug to create the background. The folder had the skulls to far apart for my linking (and my 4x4 fat page) so I ran the cardstock thru halfway then repositioned it in the folder and ran it thru the other half so I could squeeze more skulls on there :) Then I used the direct to paper technique first with black ink and that looked ok, but I figured since it was supposed to be Easter I needed a little more color so then I sponged ocean ink then rubbed all the edges on the ocean pad. I attached that to a black CS base and then used foam tape to add Ty. A couple gems on the corners and c'est fini! There's only one more day to join in the challenge so hurry on over to join in.

I printed out the image twice, on the second image I only colored the snake. I added liquid glass and waited (not so patiently) for it to dry. I used my cuttle bug to make the background and then swiped my black ink pad across the embossed card stock and attached it to a black card stock base. Once the liquid glass was dry I cut the snake out and I bent it to make it crackle. Then I attached it to the first image I had colored and cut out. I used foam tape to add the image to my fat page.
I will be entering this fat page into the following challenges:

So I printed out the bunny on some craft paper and then dug thru my massive stash of papers for something I liked. I added stitch marks around the bunny and along the edge of the base card.
Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting!

I made this fat page for the Fat Pages with Attitude Challenge #10. Well actually I made it for their last challenge with the theme of "love" but I couldn't find my cord to get my pictures from my camera to the computer so I missed the deadline, fortunately the current challenge is "anything goes". :)
I'm not sure if its the sunshine, springtime or the birds tweeting out in the yard but I've been creating some projects more on the cute side lately :) I'm sure it's just a temporary illness lol.
The image is Girl Bunny Stamp from Stamping Dragon Designs she's of the challenge images from the Crafters Digital Art Center's group of Progressive Freebie Challenges. Isn't she sweet, she brings back memories of my grandma giving my sister and I a cute stuffed bunny every Easter. Beware there may be a few more cute cards up my sleeve :)
