wish you were here
After creating the Merry Little Christmas card the other day with the Chic Shopping image, I decided I had to pull out the Looking Chic image to create a card. I can't resist Penny Johnson's adorable stamps (available through Stampavie)!
I used some October Afternoon patterned papers from the Thrift Shop line and paper pieced her coat and hat after I colored my image with copic markers. It's hard to see in the photo, but I sponged a light cream colored ink around the edge of my image while it was still in the nestability die. I added lots of stitching, a sentiment from Catslife Press, some red satin ribbon, and some roses. I'm playing along with this week's Simon Says challenge which is paper piecing.
Have a great week!
