Lilyboo Designs Let's Sleep For The Winter


Have you seen the new release digital images from Lilyboo Designs at Cuddly Buddly yet?!

My card today uses the new Lilyboo Designs digital stamp called "Let's Sleep For The Winter", boy is she ever cute with her little hedgehogs!  

This image was a fun challenge to color for me, I used Copic markers and combined different color families to get the colors of the leaves.  I'll do my best to give you the color combinations below:

Leaf Combinations -
YR24, E37
E15, YR14
                            R17, E07, E19                             
 BG90, BG93, BG95, G85
E23, E35, E37
Hedgies - E25, E17, E31, E50, E30, RV10
Skin - E00, E01, E11, R21
Hair - W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
Background/Sky - B0000, BG11, BG0000, B01, E51, E53
Top - BG90, BG03, BG95
Pants/Socks - E07, R17, E90, E93

I started out with digital papers from Cuddly Buddly but after coloring the image decided my card would be too busy with patterned papers.  I used a piece of Kraft card stock that was in my scrap drawer that's nice and rich, I wish I had a ream of it!  The red is Neenah Red Pepper, the green is Stampin' Up! Almost Artichoke and I used Copic X Press It.  I gave my plain colors texture by using an embossing folder and my old paper crimper.  I felt like my card needed something more when I finished so I enlarged and re printed the digital image so I could color some of the leaves and cut them out and use them again.

Be sure to stop by Cuddly Buddly and see their new release images for Lilyboo Designs!
