50s Pattiboop

Challenge #55 from Pattie's Creations is to use Fall/Autumn Colors.  Even though I wasn't around in the 50's, I assume Poodle skirts came in fall colors too (for some reason I always think of them as pink), so I decided to have 50's Pattiboop dressed up in her favorite fall Poodle skirt.

She's colored with Copic markers and I printed the image twice so I could pop up the bottom of her skirt for more dimension.  The whip cream on the ice cream float is actually liquid applique.

I thought this would be my last posting for Pattie's Creations, as the one year term for the team is up.  But I'm so excited to say that I was asked to stay on for another six months!

Copics used: YR20, YR31, YR23, E33, E99   YR15, YR16, YR18    YR20, YR21, YR23    T5, T7, T8    E00, E01, E11, R20    YG01, YG23, BG18    T0, T1, BV23    R46, R59, C2, C5

fabulous work Anne - really brilliant! Love the colours but I'm not sure what a poodle skirt is - is it just a skirt with a poodle on it???!!! x

Your colours are so rich and the raised skirt gives it so much PoP!

Anne - Boy do I remember poodle skirts, and you are right most of the time they were pink! I love that you popped her skirt for the added dimension.
On another note, I'm happy that you are staying on the DT for another term!
