Dream Dancer~~

My 17 year old daughter is a dancer....and a mighty fine one if I do say so myself! So when I came across THIS in the gallery on SCS, I grabbed my punches and got to work! I made one specifically for my daughter and personalized it with her name.

The alphabet is a tiny one I got in the dollar spot and my LSS. Then for the punches; scallop circle, heart, word window, 3/4 inch circle, 1/2 inch circle and the 1/8 inch handheld circle (eyes). Blush Blossom CS is the key to the flesh tones here. All punches except the heart are SU and the heart is an EK Success, the medium heart punch. I sponged the edges of the heart and glittered the edges of the tu-tu. Add some eye lashes with a marker and you are good to go!

The trick to putting these punch things together is to lay them out first on your work space, then see how the layers have to go so that as you attach them to your project (card, notebook, whatever) you are not peeling layers up to make room underneath. Some of the assembly can be done before you adhere it to the project and some of it is just easier if you do it as you go. Also, if you add white gel pen for accent, like for the penguin or the reindeer's nose, do that last after he is all glued down. This will you keep you from smearing the gel pen. I am talking from experience here!

Who knows that next week will hold stamping wise, but I hope you will stop back by to see!
