Picture Challenge La Rue Style


Happy Tuesday Bloggers and Readers!

It's time for another Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge over on the Challenge Blog.  This week we are inspired by this beautiful picture!  Okay, so I know, I took it literal, but you can be inspired by any part of this picture to create your card or project and come back and link it up to the Challenge Blog for a chance to win a prize!

This picture reminds me of a modern day version of Rosie The Riveter. Who by the way is Fabulous!  I am not a man-hater, but I am definitely a liberated woman. And so is this cute little Kiki La Rue called Latte Kiki.  And yes, as promised on Sunday, here is more Card Candi.  I took my Icing Sugar Card Candi and colored it with my R29 Copic Marker.  Then a thought occurred to me, what if I make a little teeny tiny miniature clock to go on her wall? lol.  So I did.  The things I will do when sleep deprived in the middle of the night, lol.  So my clock is also a color Card Candi

I decided to go with the colors and the scene in this picture.  I don't think I could repeat it, but I made the plaid skirt with my copics and a yellow prisma colored pencil.  Instead of a cabinet, I made a doorway and airbrushed the scene with my Copic Markers.  The paper is Echo Park note to self.  I used die-namic's for my flags.  And of course I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch

I am so excited to see your upload this week and will definitely leave you a comment.
