The Original Morning Goddess
Hi, it's Donna here. Yeah, that's me in curlers, robe and slippers with a cat at my feet and a cup of??? The image is The Original Morning Goddess by RSD MFA and she's still my fave. Look at that 'tude! Lots more Goddesses though, in Rick's Zibbet Shop. Be sure to check them out. She just begged for a snarky sentiment, don'tcha think? I've made a fairly CAS card because of all the flocking and paper piecing I did. Just some simple matting, some DP and a few buttons for interest.
First she's printed on white card stock, with the computer generated sentiment and colored with Copics. I've flocked the robe by then printing the fabric on pink card stock and running it through my Xyron face down. I find that even when flocking with a color, having the image colored makes for a more even coverage. Then I printed the image in white again and fussy cut the cuffs (including the left hand) and tie belt and ran them through the Xyron as well. One more printing for the left hand again, which I colored with Copics and placed it on top, then I adhered the white parts to the pink and then sprinkled the whole thing with white Fun Flock. It softened the pink color a bit and fuzzied up the white as well but the hand had no adhesive so it remained unflocked.
This does mute the digi lines, but you can regain a bit of detail using a fine stylus on the lines and I also used some Prismacolor pencils to add a bit of shading over the flocking. Don't use your Copics or you'll end up with a mess.
Finally, I colored and fussy cut the kitty and flocked him in gray, but added a fussy cut colored bow before flocking him. Again, I used a stylus to uncover more of the digi details after flocking. Then I cut a glitter pom pom in half and kept it together by gluing the cut edge with Glossy accents to add to her slippers. OOps, I almost forgot that I added Glossy Accents to her coffee cup, as well. Such fun details. Gotta love her and all the Morning Goddesses.
