Accident Hair

Did you ever have one of THOSE days at the hairdresser?

Welcome back to my blog!  
It's my turn today over on the Rabbit Hole blog and I have
another fun card from the recent September release!

Well, for me, I grew up with 2 parents that were hairdressers so although
I never had a bad experience at the salon, I did have one hairstyle 
that left me looking like our poor pumpkin friend.
It was a perm gone bad, ya know 80's hair that was out of control!
Just picture Little Orphan Annie times 10!!
Luckily having 2 parents that were hairdressers they were able to reverse 
that perm quickly so there was no permanent damage to my fragile
teenage ego. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Our pumpkin friend is not so lucky so she is rocking the pumpkin
hair that looks like an accident, or at least that's what she's telling her friends!

I recently broke out my Ranger Alcohol Pearl Inks and 
started playing around with them and 
I wound up with a few backgrounds that I actually liked!
I decided to turn one of them into a card for today's post.

Card Recipe

 -I started with some Ranger Yupo paper and some Ranger alcohol blending solution.
I used some blue and orange alcohol ink and mixed them around until I liked 
how it all looked together.

-Once it was dry I swiped some Kuretake Starry Colors gold paint randomly 
across the panel to give it some extra shine.

-I cut a panel of it out with a Kat Scrappiness zig zag rectangle die and WALLA
instant background! I adhered it with Nuvo adhesive to a white A2 card base.

-My pumpkin friend from Pumpkin Hair Don't Care was stamped 
with Copic friendly Gina K amalgam ink and then colored with similar Copic marker 
colors from the background of the card.  Here are the colors I used:
YR02, YR18, R46, Y06, BG13, and G00
I then cut Ms. Pumpkin out with a Kat Scrappiness zig zag circle die
to match the background panel edge.

-For the sentiment I used a fitting sentiment from Sassy Sentiments
and stamped it out in black ink and cut it from a smaller
Kat Scrappiness zig zag rectangle die to keep the same theme on the edge.

-I popped the image and sentiment up on some 3M foam tape and 
all was good in pumpkin hair land!

Here are the 2 sets I used on today's card:

  1. This is great!!! Your story is hilarious and hits home. Why is it always perms??? Mine wasn't so fixable. I had treated my hair with Sun-In for hairdresser knew this but forgot??? Anyway, the two don't mix and my hair was breaking off in mass proportions as she was taking the curlers out. I was a was horrible! Ego decimated.

  2. I had thick, thick hair to my waist in high school. My Mom decided to give me a perm (no idea why). It came out looking like Cousin It. The worst part was the softball team was filmed for future classes. I was the pitcher so that hairdo lived in infamy for years. LOVE your background for Pumpkin Hair!
