Fiddle-dee-dee

Hey gals, sorry for the late post. It's been one of those mornings and now I'm off to get the tires changed on the car... fun stuff I tell ya. ;)
So I made this card for the Farewell to Traci challenge over at Club Anya last week. I've said before how much seeing her altering of stamps opened up that world to me and it's true. I hadn't thought about tweaking an image before I saw her work and when I did there was no going back, it was like she had given me permission to really play with my stamps... thank you Traci! So for this card I seriously altered Ballerina Anya into a Southern Belle. I swear she's still in there if you look closely enough, LOL! :)
Hope your Friday is shaping up to be better than mine!

cardstock- Georgia Pacific
paper and rub ons- Basic Grey

Love this alteration! If Traci inspired you, then you have definitely inspired me though my creations are nowhere near as creative or clean as yours :)

WickedPixie said...

Absolutely Adorable Amy! It makes me so happy that you get some inspiration from me because the feeling is definitly mutual!! (In fact, I felt like I had to stop putting your name up for CA challenge wins because I did it so often I was sure they all thought we were best friends in real life or somethin!! Didn't matter - your stuff is fab enough that even if I ddin't pick you to win, one of the other DT had to!!)
