Practical Scrappers Guest DT

I've been the Guest Designer at Practical Scrappers for the past two weeks. The challenge for this week was to use a white pen or marker. Also, The Stamping Boutique was the prize sponsor and the DT (including me) got an image to play with! I had used Stamping Boutique images a few weeks ago at 365 Cards and they are wicked cute! I was so happy to get to play with another one! This time I used "a little girl with a stroller."

You can see that I used a white pen to add stitching around the edge of my card. After I drew the stitching, I used a paper piercer to poke holes at each stitch. I also used a glaze souffle pen to color the little girl's bloomers and lace.

The paper is Basic Grey Urban Prairie. Yum! The buttons are Papertrey Ink.

I used Copics to color the image. I had so much fun learning some shading techniques. I used colors: E00, E31, E33, E35, E37, G07, YG11, B00, B02, RV10, RV13, colorless blender.

This card is also for these challenges:
1. Pile it On, who asked for pastels.
2. Digital Tuesday who asked for piercing.
