Hairy Legs at Delicious Doodles

Yep, our new challenge at Delicious Doodles (DD) is all about “Hairy Legs!” We want you to interpret that in any way you would like. You do not have to use an image from Teri’s wonderful imagination, but if you do your entry will count twice. All the information is spelled out in the DDchallenge post.

I decided to go with something a little saner than what I have been doing. My “hairy legs” inspiration came from the DD image “Rowena.” It’s Rowena’s pet mouse that has the hairy legs, but then maybe Rowena did not shave her legs for a month. ;o) Who knows?

Anyway, Rowena was colored with Copics and a few accents made with glitter pens and a white gel pen. After I colored her, I trimmed her, added Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to the edges. She was layered on Stampin’ Up!’s cardstock in Cherry Cobbler and Brushed Gold.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 11, R02
Hair: E42, 43, 44, 47, 49
Leaves: YG91, 93, 95, 97, 99
Berries, lips: R21, 29, 89
Mouse: E21, 23, R02

For the finished card I layered the designer paper, My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Christmas Collection, with more of SU’s cardstock. I added some die cut corners, Cherry Lynn’s Lace Corner Deco A, and some more flourishes to the sides of the central image, Memory Box Amira Flourish.

I hope you join us for this Hairy Legg’s Challenge. When you do, and even if you don’t but you do use a Delicious Doodles, I hope you join us in our Delicious Doodles Facebook group.

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate contacting me.
