Another Movable Monster ( With Some Style!)

The Sophisticated Mrs. Frankenstein

Hi Friends and Fellow Crafters! Today I am posting another Movable Monster from the Cricut Craft Room. This is the more stylish Mrs. Frankenstein! Once again I broke out the DCWV Glitzy Glitter Paper to use on her evening wear and added some metallic bling from Imaginisce using my I-Rock. I had to be extra careful because I found that the Glitzy Paper burns easily. I had to re-cut the top because I burned some of the glitter off when the I-Rock accidentally hit the paper.

I didn't have the right color green cardstock I was picturing for her skin, so I used some green cardstock I had on hand, then blended Tim Holtz Distress Inks Weathered Wood and Mowed Lawn on it to achieve more of the hue I wanted.

I cut 2 layers of her hair, a black layer and a layer using some Spider Web paper. I think it was from Graphic 45. I also cut 2 layers of her face, one green and one silver. I trimmed the black hair layer so that I could place it behind her eyes.

I trimmed the silver lightning bolt and adhered that to her head.

The Spider Web paper to give her a chic hairstyle. LOL!

I used a red Atyou Spica Glitter Pen on her mouth.

Putting her together was interesting. I didn't realize the digital handbook had become available, so I was still flying by the seat of my pants. I had cut the lower part of her arms in the glitter paper, but then I saw the book yesterday and it showed that piece cut in green. So I re-cut the pieces in green as suggested. I really didn't like the rounded part of her hands showing, so I used the original glitter sleeves I cut and layered them on the green arms giving her hands a more "finished" look. Later, I altered the glitter paper to have a straight sleeve.

I added a belt to her waist with a scrap of paper on my table to break up the all black gown. I painted her nails a nice shade of red using Smooch, then added some red sparkle using an Atyou Spica Pen. A few pearls for a necklace and a couple of pearls on her fingers for rings gave her a little extra glamour. Thank you Nadia from With Glittering Eyes for giving me some courage to alter my cuts a little more. I have been experimenting with more my cuts because of her amazing paper art.

Like the cat before her, she is also gigantic. LOL!  She stands at a statuesque 14 inches. Now that I have a better feel for putting them together, I may downsize them a bit.  :-)
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy Crafting!
