Ellie the Hairdresser

Morning-I would like to welcome my new follower Babs- and we have a new challenge at A Inky Mess sponsored by Papernest Dolls.I used the image "Hairdresser Ellie"-quite apt as my grandaughter Ellie(10yrs) is brilliant at doing hair lol,I coloured the image with promarkers and propped on the tag with 3-D foam pads,the paper clip reminded me of hair clips so added that touching the hair.I made the background by putting distress inks on craft mat and spritzing with water,then pressed the stencil onto ink and patted onto card instead of putting ink through stencil-love this technique and only used a small tag sized piece so have more to use,I originally thought the lines could look like heat waves off the hair dryer,but cut the tag top the wrong side never realised till I posted pic!!!also struck me it would have looked better decoupaged too aarrggg leson learnt- whether it will be remembered is another matter lol.

Such a cute tag, Carol! Darling colors and sweet little girl. I especially like the clippie in the corner. It resembles a hair clippie, and is perfectly positioned in the corner of her hair! hugs, de
