Sweet Dreamers Blog Challenge #6-Share a Hug
I wanted to make a sweet card for the little girl in the following post to satisfy the Sweet Dreamers Share a Hug challenge. My stamp set that I will be showcasing for Firecracker Designs by Pamela is a very sweet set and just perfect for this challenge. I set out to make a card that a little girl would love- I stamped the image, cut it out using the Stampin Up Big Shot Die called the Top Die Note, cut around the perforated edges and cut out a coordinating paper to mat it. I found the DP first- and some glorious Organdy ribbon at Archivers to coordinate with the design.
I decided to color this project with my Copic markers, and set of to color the image. I will list all of the colors I used for this image:
I started with her sweet face first. I used Copic markers: E000, E00, E11, R20.
Next, I colored her hair Y21, E31, E33, E35, E37.
I colored the floor with Copics E59, E25, E99, E33, E53-in that order, and then went on to blend it until it looked pleasing to the eye.
Next, I colored her shirt B00, and B02- this was a touch too blue, so I added G24 over the top. For the cat, I used C0, C2, C5, and C7
For the sentiment, I used Gray SU ink and overstamped the yarn with Soft Sky. The image and sentiment are outlined with bermuda Bay CS from SU.
I added Shimmerz in Angel Wings to her hair tie and to the yarn.
I hope you enjoy this sweet card. I want to share with you the story of the little girl I made this card for- maybe you will consider sending her a card as well?
