Agent Cupcake Aiming

Welcome to the second day of previews for Little Miss Muffet Stamps and today I'm showing off the newest Agent in the Operation TREEHOUSE series... Agent Popcorn Aiming! Be sure to head on over to the store to see the Agent Popcorn in her cute pose too. ;D

Phew... this project took the longest time to finish as I had one mental block after another. I had colored Agent Popcorn a couple days ago then printed out a background to work on. However, today I made the mistake of changing out the kids summer clothes for winter ones before crafting and now I wish I had done it the other way around! LOL Now as I "rest" and enter in my details, I'm terribly distracted by a cute little movie called The Gruffalo. It's darling and I'll have to get the book from the library tomorrow.

Anyway, back to my project. He he he. This is Agent Popcorn taking aim against the boys next door. But don't let those jumbo popcorn pellets fool you as I'm sure they're filled with something gooey... maybe even something smelly too.

The background is Pebblestone Path from Make it Crafty. I had merged the images and printed them out together then realized I wanted to use dimensional for her so I colored the background ignoring the character. This gave me the opportunity to work on the grass and sky without worrying about lines. Afterward I colored the character black in case you could see between the layers. Once the project was finished I used dimensional foam and "popped" that girl right on. Enjoy!
