In Style

I've been practicing coloring hair again, this little gal is a rubber stamp from In Style Stamps.  My oldest son has copper red hair so I had to try with my Copic markers.  It's a little more orange than his but that's okay it's only paper. 

This is such a large stamp that my card size is an A6.  I cut out the colored image with Spellbinders circle dies and thought the SU Top Note die might be fun with them.  The patterned paper I won while from a great lady during the last Operation Write Home blog hop.  I also tried a new technique I learned in the Copic certification class on her shirt.  I used blender solution on a scrap of terry cloth fabric and dabbed it onto her shirt after I colored it adding texture to make it look more like a sweater.  I also added sparkle to her eyes with a Copic Spica clear glitter marker.  She has a brother I haven't colored yet. 

I hope you have some time to do something you love, see you soon.

This is such a cute card, and I love how you colored that sweet image! Not only does her hair look great, but just look at the sweater you created! Amazing! I hope one day to be able to get some Copics and learn how to use them this well!

Very cute Jan. I love the red hair. I'm not good at red hair. I have to keep practicing. I've barely mastered brown. LOL.
