A Curious Case

I made this card for The Greeting Farms Case of the Curious Card. The adorable card that we are case-ing this week was made by Marie, the creator of Anya and Ian and the other fabulous TGF stamps.


I did a little altering, giving Ruby Stella's head. Before I glued the head on I glued down the two thin pieces of the "measuring tape" that I had drawn and cut out. I also drew a pair of scissors in her hand. For the dress on the dress form I cut out the dress from the discarded "Stella" body and traced it. I couldn't use it as it was stamped because it had Stella's arms on it! Once it was traced I only had a few details to add - the heart at the neckline and the two small parts at the bottom of hte dress that are flipped up! Then I added the stand and neck of the dress form.


The Details:
Stamps: Ruby, Stella (The Greeting Farm) Sentiment (Stamping Bella)
Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Tangeringe Tango (SU), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics:
Skin: R00, E00,E11,R20
Hair: C3,C5,C7,C9,100
Clothes: YR00,YR04,YR07,YR09,G20,G21,G24,BG11,BG34,BG13
Dress and Form: E50,E53,E55,YR00,YR04,YR07,YR09,R27,R39
Misc: Stardust Stickles, Button (From stash), Foam Tape, Sewing Machine

You and Amy, what I would not give to borrow your brains for awhile! You are just so creative, this is just adorable@ I love Stella's outfit with the boots, it looks great on her and I think the little mannequin (no idea what it's actually called) is such a perfect idea! The measuring tape embellie is too, AWESOME card!

Oh Traci, I love it. Your projects (especially the coloring) are such inspiration to me. I've got quite a way to go before my coloring is anywhere as good as yours. I totally love it.
