Whimsie Doodle Challenge on the Paper Craft Planet blog! For your opportunity to win, head over to the PCP Blog and read through the Challenge details there.
First, I used the super sweet School Girl image.
I went with a simple layout and minimal accessories because I just love the plaid printed paper and her divine red hair.
There are tutorials for colouring pleats almost everywhere I turn on the web including on the Whimsie Doodles blog, but I forgot that while I coloured School Girl's little skirt, and so her skirt is a little more ruffled than pleated. Consider it to be a simple fashion variation!!!

For my second project, I used Steampunk Lizzie;
I really love the look of the steampunk genre in all its earthy fabulousness. I am particularly drawn to all the little old fashioned details that create the steampunk look.
I've used little screw head brads and a Tim Holtz watch face combined with the Tim Holtz Gadget Gears cutting die by Sizzix.
I wanted this image to look like a pencil sketch, so I lightened the lines of the digital image using a freeware image editting program (Gimp) and coloured it monochromatically using only my warm grey copic markers. I really love this old fashioned photo/graphite pencil look.
Now, seriously, haul hiney to the PCP blog and get entered in the Whimsie Doodles Challenge for your chance to WIN!!! Good luck!
