Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a good weekend.
I finally got around to colouring up one of the new Uptown Girls. The one I'm showing today is called Claudia has some Candy. She was so fun to colour. Can't wait to colour up the rest of them.
I picked my paper first which ended up being one of my favourite Basic Grey collections - Sweet Threads. After stamping her on bella's bestest paper, I coloured her using Copics this time and did some shading with pencils. I stamped out an extra candy so I could pop it up. I tried colouring the candy using copics, but first time I made a mess, so this being the reason for the extra layer, but this time I coloured it using pencils- was happy with the outcome. This stamp set also comes with it's own sentiment - 'you are so sweet', which I stamped using black versafine ink and then cut it out using one of the spellbinders tag die.
Finished off with some stitching, lots of glitter and a taupe bow. I tried pink but I think I had too much pink on the card, so the taupe kind of picks up the candy stick colour.
Well that's it for today - don't forget about our 'bring on the stripe' challenge this friday. Email your card to Emily by thursday night.
Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by.
