Challenge #29
Add Humor to your Card/Creation

This fortnights challenge them has been chosen by DT Jeanette and I have to admit I cringed when I saw the theme, humour is not really my strong point.   Where to start, what to do, decisions, decisions, decisions.  I did make a card first with a toilet on it but then I remembered I had this fab image from Bugaboo 'Stella Glue Stick' which I bought to create a page with for a journal I am creating for my daughter.  She has a tendency to speak before she thinks at times hahaha so I am sure when in the distant future she is given this journal she will have a good laugh when she sees this page.

I superimposed the Bugaboo image and sentiment onto the background using Photoshop and printed.  I then used Polychromos to colour the image and paper pieced the shoes and clothes.  The background was then coloured with Pan Pastels and as it was a bit bland I used a Sheena Douglas stencil from Crafter's Companion and Tim Holtz Distress Ink to add a bit more decoration.
