MTSC40 - A Hair Affair

Two posts today so be sure to scroll down!
I haven't played with my Bellas in a looooog time and have forgotten how much fun they are to dress. Kinda like paper dolls. I'm making a hairdresser's survival kit (more on that later) for a fundraiser so thought I'd get the card finished first so I could play in Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #40. Yes, I know it's not Tuesday and I'm late to the party but I just found it. ;-)

I dressed my oh so glam stylist in black and white with red accessories..even her buttons are red. Her dress, her pocket and her shoes are paper pieced. She's got a shimmery brush and check out those red scissors! I colored her hair with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil...high and low lights, of course. LOL

The horizontal panels are popped up on dimensionals.

Paper - SU, Making Memories
Stamps - StampingBella
Accessories - ribbon, dimensionals, flowers, bling, Sakura glitter pen, Spellbinders rectangle dies

Pin It!

What a darling card, Charlene. I LOVE that polk-a-dot pieced dress and that gorgeous ribbon/bow. Love this!

This design is chic and, I love it! I'll try baby oil with my prisma pencils, sounds much healthier than gamsol. Thanks for the great tip!
