The Cutest Dorothy!

Good morning and happy Monday to you! I am a bit sluggish this morning because I was up until 12:30 AM and up this morning at 5:30 AM. After watching the Superbowl, then Glee, I had this burst of creative energy. I had this idea for a card and had to get the card made last night before I went to bed! Does that every happen to anyone else? Anyway, what I have to share with you today is not what I made last night.....that will be posted at a later date! ; ) What I do have is a LO of Cortney this past Halloween. She was a cute, modern Dorothy! I used Crafty Secret's new Wizard of Oz stamps. I colored the Tin Man and the Scarecrow with Copics. I used a Sepia colored glossy Accents over it. Which I thought was supposed to give it a brown tinge......but I think instead it gave it a pink tinge. But it worked anyway, since I had lots of pink running through this LO. The frame was also glittered in red.

And of course the ruby red slippers had to be glittered. The inside of the shoe was colored with Copics. Tiny rhinestones were added for extra bling!
The title was done with my Cricut and the Kate's ABC's Cartridge. The banner was stamped using Crafty Secret's Artsy Banner's set.
I love using foam squares to give my LO's some dimension!
I am headed to school this morning......with a very large coffee in hand! Hope I don't fall asleep at my desk! ; ) (This darn hobby!) LOL!
Have a great day!!!
