Well, mark another grandchild starting out on their life! Don't they grow up quickly? I never thought so when my 4 were home!! Marissa's school colors were black, red and a touch of white. This was my first attempt at darker skin and by george - it came out almost exactly her skin color!! Not bad considering she lives 5+ hours of driving away! I made a regular type card. Marissa loves giraffes and I couldn't find a place for the cute stickers I had bought ages ago for something for her, so I made a couple of bookmarks using the same papers. I found out that red paper doesn't photograph as red as it is - or maybe it does depending on whether it is a scarlet red, or a pink red. The camera knows! I just had to have that Bildarma flower stamp as I am so in love with them!! I had cutout a shiny black paper to cover my coloring of the robe just in case. That was a trip -- try finding an ink other than white that shows up on black enough that you can cut the stamp out!
The front has no coloring at all. Just a couple of pieces of dp, a sticker, lots of flowers, ribbon and jewel!
Now I did keep track of the copics - yeah! R22,27,37,59; E08,31,33,35; YR23, YG63, 67, 06; C01,03,05,07; 100; Y15,17; G21, 28. Tilda is on dimensionals as are some of the balloons and some of the flowers. I ended up drawing some of the balloon strings. Just got this wonderful heart corner punch set and had to use it. I used it on the glitter red paper for the sides - it has to be a standard size for the corner things to work with the sides. Mine wasn't and it was wayyyyy too late to correct that oversight! I stickled Tilda's socks and tassel as well as the flat technique which is what I call it when you pat the stickles, on the background.
