I love how some of these Saturated Canary images like this “Little Loves” are so large and easy to color (great for beginning and advanced coloring). I had picked up this stamp from the Not2ShabbyShop during my design team stint and have had so much fun coloring and paper piecing with her.

20150513_092204I hadn’t made a paper bag card in a long time, and I thought it would be fun to try this again with a gold paper bag that I received with some crafty goodies recently. I followed THIS tutorial by Jamie (the owner of the Not2ShabbyShop).

I used the following Copic colors as well as a Copic multiliner pen in 0.03 pt to clear up the eyes and add more eyelashes (a girl can never have too many long lashes, right?!):
Skin: E000, 00, 11, 13, and BV01
Blush: R20
Hair: E55, 57 and 59
Eyes: G24, 94 and 99
Lips: R85 and 89
Butterfly: YR20 and 24
Shading on paper pieced dress: W1 and 3

In the video, in which I describe all the parts of decorating this card (like the love die cut from green/gold glitter paper and the pretty crocheted flowers below and above the beautiful crocheted green bow), I also show a comparison with another image that I colored with a yellow undertone skin color combination (E50, 51, 53 and R30):

This card is also being entered into the following challenges:
Teresa Renken’s 300+ Subbie Challenge
Craft-Dee BowZ Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow Challenge
Suzy Bee’s Anything Goes with a Twist…Add Flowers Challenge
Scrappin Stampers Facebook Lunch Bag Card May Challenge

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a wonderful day! WOOF
