I posted a card using this same digi stamp a month or so ago but after I colored this one, it looks completely different from the first one. This time, I made the her look a little younger and more innocent. I like her because she's so sweet and is easy to cut out by hand. I also like to add my own patterns to her clothes or with some care and patience, she can be printed onto patterned card stock and her shirt or jumper could be fussy cut and layered onto the colored image, the way I did with The Big Guy's shirt on my last card. It's a very versatile image that can be used for a number of different occasions. Okay, here she is.
One thing I learned in coloring all these images is that you can keep layering the Copic alcohol inks until they become fairly opaque and give the appearance of paint. Pretty cool as far as I'm concerned.
The image came from DZ Doodles and was colored with Copics. It's called "I Wonder?" and is available for purchase from their store here. Base cardstock is Core'dinations with white glitter cardstock (DCWV) and light pink cardstock (Recollections) mats layered on top. Mats are edged with darker pink chalk ink. The dp is from a My Mind's Eye 6" x 6" stack called Home. This little stack has some really beautiful prints and lots of sparkle. I used several sheets on the the cards I just made and I wish I had a 12" x 12" stack just like it. I used a paper doily to layer the image on and to make the sentiment, which is from a Cloud 9 clear stamp set called Simple Thoughts - Girl, stand out. I cut the circle out with my Cutter Bee circle scissor. The lace is from my doll making stash and the ribbon is from Michael's All of the flowers and leaves are handmade by me from cardstock, colored and/or distressed with Copics. The flower centers are yellow mini brads. I had to punch holes in the center of each layer of the little flowers other than the rose so I could insert the little brads. Inside borders were made using a Martha Stewart border punch and the inside verse is from the same Cloud 9 stamp set. I used gel pens for some of the smaller details like the buttons and buckles on her jumper and the pattern on her little tee-shirt.
So there you are! That makes 3 down and a whole bunch more to go! LOL I hope you enjoyed this little card and that you'll come back to see what I have for you tomorrow. Beyond it being another card, I don't even know what it will be. Thanks for visiting. Your comments are welcome and appreciated. Have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend!
