Punchy AND Twisted!

Hey blogland!!! I mentioned in my last post just how addictive the Martha Stewart punches are once I was able to figure out how to use them correctly and as soon as I was done with my last layout I was brainstorming ideas for a card using them as well...

This twisted easel was made using the traditional easel base with the top flap folded in half at a diagonal instead of straight back, then I added the punched patterned papers at the 6X6 size to the base, cut some matted papers with the punches as well, then added the image.

This GORGEOUS Elisabeth Bell image is a Whiff of Joy stamp that I colored in using copics (Skin: E000, E00, E11; Hair: E50, E53, E31, E33, E25; Green trim--BG93; Paper pieced dress: YG21, R20). I had the hardest time finding markers to approximate the colors in the papers so I paper pieced her dress and added shading with the copics as best I could...

This one was made using the sketch over at Elisabeth Bell's Challenge World and the challenge over at Card Makin Mama's is to get Punchy!! :) (Pretty appropo, no?)

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful weekend!
