On to my project! The first step for me is usually flipping through my idea book or magazines and getting an inspiration. It could be a sketch or colors or just an idea. The paper pieced girl with the umbrella here is my inspiration. I liked the colors on kraft and the paper piecing. Then I pull some products for the card. Kraft cardstock, fun print paper and a cute girl stamp. I know I'll need these scissors too!
Stamp the girl a few times on print papers. I figured I'd need all three prints to really dress her the way I wanted to. Then the one on the cream is for the parts of her I will color.
Color the girl and arrange the paper piecing. It's not glued down yet, I'm checking to make sure I like it. I also drew in a grass line and sponged in clouds.
This next step is the longest for me. If I have a sketch it's easy I just use the sketch. If I don't like this card I put my stuff I want to use in a little pile and stare at it for a while.
Got some more stuff out and stared at it some more.
Stamped a sentiment. More staring. (Did really dig that sentiment with this girl though.)
Then whipped it up into a card. Here is another close up of the piecing. I really like it. I want this dress.
Here is a cute little button accent I made for it.
And here is the finished card. Ta-DA!!!
