Pile On the Pretty Hair!

Our theme this week at Pile It On is Pretty Hair. The challenge is sponsored by The Paper Nest Dolls, and they their images are just perfect for this challenge. One lucky participant will win a $25 gift certificate to their store!

I used their Popcorn Ellie digi stamp and a sentiment from TLC Creations to make a movie-themed card:

The polka-dotted patterns are actually digitally pieced using PhotoShop and a digital overlay by Mel Stampz. I colored the rest of the image with Copics. I chose a Butter Blonde palette for her hair color!

The popcorn pieces are cut from a foil package of popcorn...Yum!

The popcorn on the image is filled with a Snow Marker (Marvy) to give it a puffy effect. The base card and mattes were cut with Spellbinders dies using my BigShot. I added some red mesh (recycled from vegetable packaging) and glittered ric-rac.
