About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Trudy's in the house......

Isn't she lovely.......  I love the look of this digi; her name is Trudy.  It reminds me of the older advertisement of the 50's and 60's.......ooooppsss.  I guess I'm telling my age a bit.  I remember dressing up like this as a little girl. The mary jane shoes, the pretty dresses, the socks, etc.......

This was a freebie for a contest on FB.  You can buy this one (I think) from 
Mo's Digital Pencil.  Not sure if its in the shop yet, but take a look at her other images.....they are fabulous!!!!

I colored Trudy with colored pencils and blended with OMS (Odorless mineral spirits) and a paper stump.  I stamped the floral image along the border of the dress.  I also used Bic markers to make the shadow under her feet.  The scalloped border is from Stampin' up. The flowers are punched from a SU! punch as well, its called boho blossoms.  I haven't colored in a while and I was really enjoying myself.

Until later, party girls........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!!!
