Hope you are having a great weekend. Today I created a card using a new Stampavie stamp I recently got. The name of the stamp is Francesca in the Winter Field by Sarah Kay. I think this little girl is so cute. I don't believe I have ever colored hair black. I am always afraid I will totally mess things up when I use that color. However, I decided to try and color Francesca's hair using a black colored pencil and OMS. I think it worked pretty well. Guess I don't need to be so afraid to color with black. The whole image was colored with colored pencils and cut out with a square Nestie. I cut out a frame to go under the image using the Nestie Lacy Square. The tree was cut out with a Sizzix die. I cut it out twice using textured card stock. The second one was cut apart so I could sponge the edges and layer it to give it some dimension.
Wow, that was a quick and easy card. Joan's Gardens has a lot of the new Sarah Kay stamps. It is always a hard decision on which ones to purchase, because they are all so darn cute.
