It's February's Blog Hop!


Welcome to February's Blog Hop!  It's another exciting one!  We have been working with Sherri Baldy Stamps!  For my first Blog Hop project I used the Nellie and Dot the Dragon stamp.  Once I colored her, I decided to use her on a locker dry erase board. 


I colored Nellie and Dot using my Distress Markers and some watercolor markers.  I did try my first attempt at using Copics for the skin.  I'm not sure whether I want to invest all that money into more Copics, but at least I have the skin tones.  The Distress Markers would not work for skin.  I then added some clear stickles to her socks, skirt, and a dot in each eye.


I used some purple beaded trim from the dollar store to put across the bottom.  Then I used some large jewels to put around the frame.  But I didn't have purple jewels, so I decided in keeping with Valentine's Day I would punch out some purple hearts!


I glued Nellie and Dot to some chipboard after I colored them.  I then cut them out with a craft knife (not an easy thing to do--note to self:  use thinner cardboard).  I found some stuff called Fantasy Fibre that I used to put behind her.  I also added some black feathers and green tulle.




I just loved how this turned out!  I am sure some teenage girl would want this in their locker!  If you have any questions...ask away.  If you want to leave a comment, go ahead and show me some love! 

Now it's on to the next person on the Blog List.....
