Mix and Match Dress Up

Postby GlitteryKatie on Mon May 17, 2010 8:05 am

Ok so I had the Andrew Sisters idea and I knew I wanted them to look a bit like:

First of all I looked through the different digital outfits and picked the items of clothing that was closest to what I wanted:
I chose the skirt and blouse from Business Bombshells

I opened the Business Bombshell file in my photo editing program (I use Photoshop Elements) and made a copy (I don't like to fiddle with the original!)
I selected the skirt and blouse then cropped them from the rest of the sheet. I then opened a new file (300dpi A4 or US Letter size) and dragged the blouse and skirt to where I wanted it- I did the left and right outfits first then finally I dragged the middle outfit over and positioned it over the other two so they were in formation!

Now I wanted to add and collar and tie to the blouse so in my Photo editing program I used the clone tool to 'blot' out the buttons and neckline on the blouse:

So it started to look like:


I then sketched a tie and collar onto white cardstock so that it was the right size for the Bombshell-I made three copies!

Next I used the Nurse's shoes and the Police Officer's hat from the 'To the Rescue' digital set.


I the coloured the clothes in:
Blouse and skirt and hat :YG95 and G85 for the shading
Shoes: E47 E57
Tie: G85
And carefully cut them out.

I then stamped out THREE Bombshell Angel stamps but you don't need to colour their bodies as you will only use their heads and legs!
After you have coloured these in cut the legs (from the knees down) and the heads carefully and then put the pieces together to create your Bombshell Sisters!

The rest of the card:
7 gypsies paper, Tim Holtz paper Stack
Distress Inks
Sizzix Alterations flower die
Tattoo Font

Thanks so much for the tutorial for how to edit the Digital images using Photo Elements. I'm going to have to give it a go!

I do love your Andrews Sisters project. It's just perfection.
