I really like this little lady - she's quite fun - check out the tiny skulls on her skirt and her hat! I used the colours in the graphic as inspiration for colouring the image. In my stash I found crown stamp which is perfect for the theme. I used the layout from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#225. The crowns fit nicely down one side of the card and I used pretty patterned paper for the large panel. I printed the image on white card, coloured her with Copic markers and used a scalpel to cut her out. I die cut an oval panel from white card, adhered the image and added some little gems. I finished the front of the card with a simple birthday greeting. On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper, which I edge with a brown marker and adhered to the card. On the white panel I stamped the crown again and added the crown. I added sparkle to the main image (skulls, umbrella, lips and hat) with a clear Wink of Stella brush and also to the hearts in the crowns. Sadly you can't see it in the photo!
