Eyepod



It's Monday again, so that means a new challenge is starting from the Digi Makeover Challenge.  This week's challenge is to make an easel card.



Eyepod, from Paper Makeup Stamps is listening so intensely to his music, that he's oblivious to everything else going on around him. 


He's colored with Copics, fussy cut out and then adhered to a background die cut with Spellbinders Labels Four (#6).  The easel base was cut using the Grand Labels Four (#1) and embossed with the Music M-Bossabilities from Spellbinders.  I added a touch of Distress Inks (Salty Ocean) to highlight the embossing and stamped my sentiment (Unity Stamps) onto twill ribbon.  The sentiment is actually a partial impression of the stamp - the entire thing says "you rocked it!, so I masked the part I didn't want.  The music note is a really old Sizzix Original small die (one of the old green ones).

Be sure to visit the rest of the design team creations to see what they've come up with for your viewing pleasure.  As always, you have one week to upload your digi project to the Digi Makeover Challenge blog.

I'm entering this into the following challenges: Great Impressions (best stay in lines coloring) and Oozak (bright colors).

Love your use of Eyepod and your description of him too! Now I know why I like to use this image for my younger son, haha. Brilliant idea to make a shaped base for your easel card too - and all your elements go perfectly together for this theme! :)
