Happy Mail Birthday Greeting
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
I took a little liberty with the sketch provided and added an extra panel with the colored image but that's what sketches are...just a guideline to spark your creativity!
Simple layering of designer papers for the background. The butterflies are cut and embossed with a Sizzix Embosslit. I added one to her hair just to tie things together a little bit more.
The adorable image has been colored with Copics and paper pieced. I tried my hand at coloring the mailbox to give it a metallic look...yes, that's going to take some practice!
Here's the recipe:
Paper: Neenah, Stampin' Up! Early Espresso, MME Paris & Co. and MME A Beautiful Life
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Stampin' Up! Early Espresso
Stamps: My Favorite Things Happy Mail
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, Stampin' Up! Sizzix Embosslit Beautiful Wings, 1" square punch ATG, Ranger Glossy Accents, and Copics: E00, E21, E37, BV000, R21 (face/cheeks); E31, E35, Y21, E57 (hair); G82, G85 (grass); C3, C5, R37, R39 (mailbox); W1 (letters); B21, B23, B24 (bird) and E31, E35 (shoes and base of mailbox)
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
