DRS Cutie Pie!

I was so excited to find this Cutie Pie in the package of stamps that DRS Designs sent me! I think she is so absolutely adorable! I have been trying different coloring media to see how she looks with each one. She's so much fun to color!

Last week Asela and I shared lunch and then stamped together for a while...Asela didn't get much done since she essentially ended up pausing here and there to give me my own little private copic lesson! I enjoyed it so much, and built quite a bit on what I had already learned at the Copic certification course I took in February. It was fun to use Copic colors that are not yet part of my collection, and to see how the various colors blend together to create high- and low-lights to give a two-dimensional image more of a 3-D appearance.

For this card, I stamped using Memento ink, then colored with Copic markers to match BoBunny's designer paper Alissa Twirls. I added a black mat with a lacy edge because it seemed to really heighten and brighten the colors, especially with some hot pink BoBunny button accents and a bow of mint glimmer ribbon.

I think she is going to be one of my very FAV stamps during my two months as DRS guest designer! I just love her!

If you liked the sweet silhouette I posted yesterday, you should go visit my friend and DRS Roomie Dawn Mercedes! She posted the companion silhouette, a little boy, using a mosaic stamp which turned out absolutely gorgeous! I'm so happy to be guest designing alongside her! I think she's amazing!
