Uptown Jayden

Mom, to the rescue once again.  Karen asked me on Tuesday evening if I had a card to give to a summer student (Taya)  on Wednesday, that was working with Karen and she is leaving to go back to university on Thursday. Well, yes I have cards, but none that were fitting for  a young adult. (Flowery cards just wouldn't do!)

Of course, Karen wanted something in the 'bella' images, so she went through my stamps from Stamping Bella and pulled out a couple.  I thought Uptown Jayden fit best, since she is going back to school and she loves her sweets.  I'm using Uptown Jayden loves to journal- looks like she is deep in thoughts!  I think Jayden is more for writing a note or keeping in touch, but I think this still works.

I found some papers from Authentique - Flourish which remind me of school binder paper so went with that along with one of the co-ordinating papers in the pack.  Taya's favourite colour is pink, so I had to make sure I had pink somewhere on my card.

Stamped Jayden onto some white courgar c/s and then coloured using prisma colour pencils and blended with gamsol.  For skin tones I used Copics - E000, E00, E01, E11, R20, R21.

MFT stitched rectangle was used to cut her out.  To finish off I added some white freckles on her cheeks using my white gel pen, some sequins, glitter to the icing on the cupcake, and some turquoise seam binding ribbon.

Taya loved the card, when she left yesterday from work she came down to tell me so! :) (Karen and I work for the same company - just one floor apart)!

Well, that's it for me today, I am actually working on some Christmas cards - can you believe it!
Enjoy your weekend, whatever it brings.  It's suppose to be a nice low 70 degree weekend with lots of sun.  Off to the trails we go!  See you soon,

I know you must have an amazing collection of Bellas, and there's always one to fit any occasion. It must be fun to look through them. I think Jayden is perfect for a young lady heading back to university! Plus you've got the pink and the notebook paper... all with your fabulous coloring, sigh. I love to click for a close up. You're so good! Funny how excited I get when you stamp, sheesh!
