I’ve been wanting to color this one for a while, but was waiting for the right moment to hit… I am a creature of mood, so an image has to “speak to me” for me to really get into creating with it. Sometimes it is instant and I know the second I see it exactly what I need to do with it… specially those ones that tickle my bad sense of humor. Others I have to let them grow on me and I bounce ideas around and then it hits me…
This was one of those projects. I had the main image and the fun paper done and sat waiting for the finishing touches.. when it hit me. I was just gonna have to write me a poem LOL. I hope you like it.
This is my DT project for the February 2017 Crafty Awesomeness Challenge and was created with an image from Cute As A Button, who is the February Sponsor. Come on over and join in and share your projects.
This is IMG00221 Chiquita by Cute As A Button she was print and cut on the Cricut Explore and colored with a mix of Zig Kurecolor and Chameleon Pens. I popped some Glossy Accents on the grapes and necklace for a subtle 3D feel. The patterned paper is one I found on Etsy by AT Art Digital and you may have seen my “Do you digital?” post last week or two about these.
I printed this on my Epson Eco Tank, and then trimmed that down with my wavy blade on my cutter. I added a black layer behind for impact which also has a wavy edge and then mounted it all on a card base cut from a Craft Smith paper pad using Zig Photo Tape. The Pineapple was one of the Michaels $1.50 stamps and I stamped, hand cut and colored that. Sentiment die, I think was a cheapie import??? cut on my Sizzix Big SHot
and the poem.. yup…. the poem…. that was all me…. sorry, having a “moment” LOL.
Let’s face it.. not every girls is flowers and hearts. I’ll take a good laugh over a bunch of flowers any day of the week.
Love this image, reminds me of Carmen Miranda…. yup… I know..showing my age again lol.
Hope you like it 🙂
