A Woman's Work

This weeks Featured Stamper over on SCS is Elaine (aka Quixotic).  Wow, can this girl color!  I checked out her blog and she has several tutorial on Copic Coloring, really really excellent work.  I learned I have a lot to learn with that medium!!

I chose to Case this "Lola Di Vinci" card of hers.  I kept the color scheme and layout, but changed out all the materials to what I have on hand.  My image is "Wanda" by Loralie Designs.  These images are so much fun!  They all come with "accessories" to the main image, just like paper dolls!  I picked up several from Loralie's collection last year at a trade show. Another Loralie Design I made is posted here if you want to see another example.

I paper pieced her dress, apron, and hair wrap.  Then I used all copics to color in the skin, hair and shoes.  The DP is Cosmo Cricket "Salt Air" and Me and My Big Ideas "Fashion District". The punch and ribbon are SU! and the sentiment stamp is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps (picked it up last month from that outrageous stamp store!). Finally, her earrings and necklace are Basic Grey Opaline half back pearls.

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

I absolutely love this card!!! What a hoot! Your coloring (as usual) is fabulous. It's hard for me to believe that you have a lot to learn about coloring with copics! This card totally rocks, GF!
