Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - Tall & Skinny!


Happy Tuesday to you!  This is going to be a good week, nice and short for me.  I am taking a couple days off to hang out this week and I am so looking forward to it.  I caught myself driving home from work yesterday distracted with a million things on my mind.  I stopped at a red light and went on thru it.  I am not even sure if I looked left and right.  I got about half way thru the light and realized what I had done.  Thanks God everyone is ok and there was not traffic coming my way.  It is a very busy intersection.  It just made me realize I need to focus on the important things in life and not get so cluttered up.

OK, enough babble!! You are here for a challenge, so here it is......At  Loves Rubberstamps
this week we want to see "Tall & Skinny"! 

Our sponsors this week is Eureka

I searched for some fun images that would fit the tall and skinny order today and came up with Panda Marci from La La Land. She is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with copics.  edges are inked with Tim Holtz Brushed curodory distress ink.   I also used SImple Stories Fabulous paper for the background. The image is cut out with Spellbinders, Labels 18.  I added some burlap ribbon and some fringe at the bottom part and made a pop top charm to hang off the ribbon (see below)

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair:  E31, E25, E29
Dress:  E40, E41, E43
Boots:  E31, E37, E57
Scarf/Gloves:  R24, R29, E07
Jacket:  YG93, YG95, YG97

Here I used mix and match MFT dies to cut out the banners.  I added some ink, ribbon and part of a doily to it for fun.  The bottle cap is made with Peacock Feathers distress ink and My Mind's Eye Lost and Found  Ruby clear stamp.  The sentiment is by Amy R Be Happy collection.

For the inside, I used matching papers from the SImple Stories Fabulous pack.
