Inky Impressions Challenge #2 - CD Calendar Case

Hi Friends! Okay. . .I finally was able to upload photos to my blog. Like I said this morning in my previous post. . .my Internet wasn't working yesterday and today because our router decided to stop working. Right now we're using a temporary router until my husband can buy a new one. Unfortunately, this older back up router is a bit testy and "slow". Ugggh!!

Here is my project for the Inky Impressions Challenge #2. The challenge is to "Think Outside the Box" and create a 3D or altered project.

Because I needed a July calender, I decided to create this CD calendar for July. I used "Bunny Ears Lili" but her bunny ears didn't really quite match the month of "July". ..I covered Lili's ears by drawing a hat! LOL! I also added flower stickers to the basket to cover up the Easter eggs that are in the basket. Hey. .sometimes you just gotta improvise.

I got the idea from Cami of "Capture A Heart". She had created a card altering Lili's bunny ears and the basket and I thought . . .hey, great idea!

Be sure to stop by Inky Impressions Challenge blog and check out the other cool projects that the design team created!

Also. . .stop by the Inky Impressions store and get your stamps so you can play in the weekly challenges!!


Here is a close up of Lili. I colored this cutie with my Copic Markers.

I created a tutorial of this project a while back. . .if you want to try it out: Click Here For the calendar template:

Maria, the hat you drew is so darn cute! At first, I was going to ask what stamp this is so I can get one then I read you drew this! Of course, I know you have the talent to draw but this hat can be used in so many ways! I love this idea! Can I "borrow your hat?" Your calendar is just beautiful! Your color selection is always so appealing and that's something I have to work on. Great job on this challenge, Maria. Love it! Hugs, Cami
