A new card for tonight:
Bootsy Collins, of Parliament fame. First, a calm, almost demure Bootsy:



Then BAM! A funk attack!



I like this one, although I think I pretty much broke the rules as there's no way to fit him into the 3.5 by 2.5 frame without bending his arms at some pretty unnatural angles. This idea/concept was inspired by/stolen from The Mighty Boosh, as is pretty much everything I ever do  Roll Eyes.

Edited to say: here's the picture I used for reference:

And also, thank you guys so much for all the nice comments! You guys make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and keep me coming back for more Craftster lovin'.  Kiss

OK, it was only a matter of time before I made an Edward Scissorhands card, and I'm having so much fun with tiny brads, so here it is:





All the limbs are jointed, and each finger/scissor can move independently:



Here's what my paper looked like before I cut everything out, so it's easier to see how it's done:



I'm a bit worried that the background is too bland; I'm considering either cutting him out and putting him on a similar background (to add depth), or darkening the bottom of the background with a darker blue to make things a little more interesting.

All right, so I added a color background to the Tina O'Brien one and did a second portrait, this one of Helen Flanagan, who is apparently an actress from the same show:



Ughghg, man do I need some portrait work  Undecided.

OK, one more for tonight...this was supposed to be Tina O'Brien, who I think is an actress from a British soap. I suppose I'm cool with how it turned out, although portraits are definitely my weak point... Undecided

Another afro'd creation:



I have a question: is there a way to make the colors show up better in photos? All of my photos look really washed out compared to the real thing, especially this one. My scanner's broken, so that's not an option...I was just curious if anybody knew of some photo magic.

I got my supplies from gsdbooks yesterday! It's AMAZING!! Seriously, the pictures don't do it justice:









A ton of paper, stamps, confetti, pencils, felt, letters, tags, and general awesomeness! Thank you SO much, gsdbooks! Seriously, I couldn't be happier if you had milked a happiness cow and sent me jugs of fresh tasty joy. I love everything and can't wait to start using it all!
