Girl in Yellow

Hello, everyone! I made this card just for fun. I had come across some digital stamps by Art by Miran that I liked and so I decided to use this one (called Lillian) to make a card. I thought this would make a really cute card for a young girl. It also gave me an opportunity to do a lot of coloring with my Copics. And there was a lot of coloring here, especially the hair. It took me several tries to get it just right, or what I thought was just right. But I'm sorry to say it was a dreary and rainy day and I didn't have good lighting when I took a photo of my card. So...sadly, the vibrant colors aren't very intense or even very visible.

I made my base using GKD Pure Luxury Christmas Pine card stock. I layered the base card with white and then added another layer of digital dotted swiss patterned paper.

The green panel (same color as base) was die cut with the largest die from Spellbinders A2 Polka Dots die set and adhered to the base. The little girl image was colored with Copics and then adhered to the green panel.

To add a little extra to the focal point, I created a bow from yellow ribbon and adhered it to where there was an actual image of a bow which I had already colored. The sentiment is from GKD Buds and Vases stamp set and was cut and embossed with the smallest die from Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles.

This completed my project. I hope you liked it. Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll stop by again.
