After I finished the background I cut pages from an old dictionary into the shape I needed for my girl
I fitted designer paper to make her clothes
I tried again after deciding I didn't like the first papers. I added ruffles to the bottom of the skirt
New arms was needed and I started to glue down the girl
Here she is glued down
I drew some hair using my Fiber Castle pen and outlined the image. I added some rub ons. You definately need those
I decided I used too wide a pen to outline her and she looks pretty plump. What to do, what to do!
Hey, a bigger head was needed. Now she doesn't look so fluffy. I wish I would have gotten a better picture. One not so shiney. But it was my first one and I am looking forward to the next.

I have to tell you I LOVE making these cards. You do get inky for sure. I can't wait to take the class at the Queen's Ink that Dyan Reaveley is going to teach. It is going to be so fun. Here is a video of her working the line at the factory.

http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/sassystudiodesigns/forum/topics/fabulous-freebie-friday-10-5-12) is having a challenge to make a card for Breast Cancer awareness. Sassy Studio Designs (http://sassystudiodesigns.blogspot.com/) has supplied the free image for this challenge and and gives one every friday. So I combined the free image with another that they had to make my card. I cut and combined them in Photoshop. I didn't put a greeting on the outside. (I couldnt decide where to put it) But the inside says "You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. And I have known some pretty strong ladies in my time. I colored the image with Copic Markers and used Stampin Up glitter on the ribbon and around the image. I love this fine glitter. I wanted my pinks to match so the pink mat is a piece of white cardstock that I colored around the edges with a copic marker.

Inside the card says "I cannot sit and chat with you the way I'd like to do, so brew yourself a cup of tea, I'll think of you, you think of me."
