A real tomboy



Happy Monday! Just sharing an easel card--yep, another one!--that I made with Wild Sprout Audrey. I was thinking about doing this for the longest time and it finally came together.



I used Amy's altering technique and inked up Skater Ian, then wiped away the outline of his head and stamped him on some cardstock. I printed out digi Audrey, colored her head and cut it out.







Then I mounted her head onto Ian's body and there she is....Skater Audrey! The background was made by clear embossing this stamp and then sponging on some distress inks.

And I love the perfect sentiment from this set by Nina Brackett. Thanks to my friend Alice for enabling me to get them!


Don't you love it when things turn out the way you planned?
Hope you're all off to another great week...

Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Hero Arts, Nina Brackett for GinaK Designs
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Martha Stewart kraft
Ink: Memento, Peeled Paint distress ink, Versamark
Other: Nestabilities circle and oval dies, buttons, pop dots,
clear embossing powder

  18. this is such a wonderful card! I love the altered Audrey! this reminds me of when I was younger and was so tomboy that I had to play in the streets with my brother...lol! how did you print out her head to be the same size as the body? did you really have to measure? I try, but it never really works for me! as always such awesome work! thanks for the inspiration! have a good week!
