Fumi Panda - Kigurumi Series Y&FH

Here's what I came up with, hope you like...
Boo with Fumi Panda

Since Halloween is just around the corner I decided to make this Halloween themed card with Fumi dressing up as a Panda Munster.  hahaha!  Do any of you remember the tv show The Munsters?  It was mostly a black & white program, but they did have a couple colored movies and I took my inspiration of color from that.  It was a lot of fun to color her up in shades of what I like to call Munster green, with red-orange eyes and purple hair.  The only thing normal here is the color of her outfit.  
After coloring and distressing my image I grabbed my Perfect Layers ruler #1 and an Exacto knife to do the following cuts all with the intention of layering up my papers. The cool thing is all of these measurements are on 1 ruler!  Pretty convenient and easy!:
  1. Matted my colored image on to some lime green cardstock and using the 1/8" mark as my guide to cut all four sides.   
  2. Matted that to some fun orange spider paper and used the lime green cardstock as my guide to cut using the 5/8" mark.  
  3. The next layer is a dark gray with black glitter designs which is cut at the 3/8" mark.   
  4. The last mat is the lime green polka dot paper which is cut using the 1/4" mark and I used the dark gray patterned paper as my guide.  
To finish off my card I used a few products from my plethora of craft supplies, and some go to companies (C.C. Designs and Stampin' Up).

Now it's time to hop on over to the amazingly talented Kim O'Connell's blog, but before you get hoppin' don't forget to leave a comment.  Mahalo for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
