I felt like coloring yesterday so I pulled out this adorable Uptown Girls image by Stamping Bella. I recently got a few new colors of Copic markers, including these pretty yellows. It was fun to get them out and play with no predetermined result in mind.
I picked this pretty patterned paper from the Retro Fresh pack by Stampin' Up for my background. I thought the color and pattern had a wintry feel, which was perfect for this girl. After coloring, I carefully cut her out and glued a few scrap pieces of cardstock underneath to raise her up just slightly. (mainly to keep her level with her boots, but it also adds a tiny bit of dimension)
I glittered a piece of white cardstock that I cut with the In the Meadow die by Papertrey Ink. Of course, I realized afterwards that I forgot to shade under the girls' boots. Oops! I stamped my sentiment on a white pierced fishtail flag and added a pretty rhinestone brad. I removed the prongs before sticking it down with a glue dot.
I love how it turned out! This wintry girl really makes me smile.
