A double CASE!
Hello! How has your week gone so far? I have to say, I have been great! I don't know if it's finally feeling better or the sunshine and Spring-like weather here but I have been in a very chipper mood! I kind of like it!
So, have you made a card for The Greeting Farm's Case of the Curious Card III Challenge? If not, you should head over Here to find the details and then get BUSY! You can win your choice of a free TGF stamp, but you need to enter by April 24! Now, my card actually CASEs two cards. The first, of course, is Jessica's card, which is the challenge. But I also CASEd this card by my 9 year old daughter, Ronnie:
She made this card over the weekend and I LOVED her idea of Anya relaxing with a facial and some cucumber slices over her eyes. (I'm not sure I get why you would do that while lying on the beach, but maybe that's something only 9 year olds would know!) I took mine a step farther and put a gooey white mask on her face!
I started with the Anya from the Dress Me set. I cut off most of her hair and drew a shower cap to cover it and a towel to cover her body. Her face mask is just white acrylic paint (I really wish I'd had something with a little more texture, like some puff paint, but that's all I had.) To make the cucumbers I just colored two spots light green, pulled a little color out with the colorless blender, then punched them out with a 1/4 inch circle punch. Then I just ran a darker green marker around the edges. I used DP from Little Yellow Bicycle. Everything is colored with Copics:
Skin: E00, E11, RV13
Towel and Shower Cap: RV13, RV14, YG11, YG25
Thanks for visiting me today!
