It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS.


Nothing says aloha like hula dancing.
 And nothing could be cuter than Birdbrain doing the Hula.

I started out by watercoloring  some backgrounds. wouldn't believe what a mess I can make!
 Anyhow, after they dried, I picked this background and printed the image
 where I wanted her and then ran it through the printer again to position the word Aloha.
Thank goodness I have an awesome light box which makes this pretty easy to do.
Then I printed the same image onto white cardstock and colored it with 
Copic markers, fussy cut her out and layered her onto the image that 
was printed over the watercolor splash. that way I didn't have to worry
 about cutting out those stick legs!
You can't see it in the picture, but her flowers and bead necklace sparkle!
I used clear Wink of that stuff!

  1. Oh my gosh Doni!!, you are right, nothing is cuter than this Hulla Chic!!!
    I was looking at the cards at the Addicted to CAS and yours just jumped at me, what a hoot this image is!!!
    I'm scrambling to find something with an Aloha theme to participate, I know I must have something in this room.
    Thank you for the inspiration.
