TDS 3D Challenge

The Digi Shack is hosting a 3D challenge today! Using any of the TDS images, create a 3D image or alter something. The only restrictions is it cannot be a card or a scrapbook page.

Here is what I started with.
This was purchased for $1 at Michaels - you can generally find them in the dollar bins up front. I decided to cut it down a bit and get rid of the "O" on the top of the lined papers. So, I tore this apart and got busy altering the heck out of it.

Here's what it became.

I ended up cutting about an 1 1/2 inches off the top off of it. The image is the one that TDS was giving away for free last Saturday and if you missed it, you can pick it up for $1 at the shack. I colored her with Copic markers, cut it out with a rectangle nestie and layered it with the deep red cardstock. The sentiment is computer generated. Red gingham paper is from My Minds Eye. And just pretend that you don't see that little bit of blue poking through at the corner! LOL!!!

Two of the flowers were colored with R29 (Red lipstick) and then stamped with the Polka Dot's Basics II set from PTI. A black pearl is used for the centers. Obviously, I was going matchy matchy with the red with black polka dots ribbon that I tied onto the wire rings. Which also matches the scarf that is tied around the head of the lady. She so reminds me of my grandma when she was really young! I can remember her wearing her hair in just that fashion. She also taught me a lot about baking and cooking, too!

So, now you have to check out the rest of the design teams blogs to see what they came up with. Hopefully, you will be inspired to play along. Please link back to the Digi Shack with your project so that the design team can see it and leave you some blog love!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
