Lizzie with Muff


I wanted to try something different. I tend to design very bold cards, in colors and papers and embellishments. I have had a stash of Basic Grey Paper,the Porcelain collection, forever. It is very subdued and I have had a difficult time using it in projects. So, I challenged myself to use it on a card and to color an image that would reflect the colors of the paper. By George I think I have done it. Enter the lovely, Lizzie with Muff. I chose this image from Whiff of Joy. I colored her with Copic markers and popped her up with dimentionals. I added ribbon and pearls.

I am always intrigued by how the same stamp, when colored differnt ways, can take on such a different look. My challenge to you..take some of your stash and find inspiration:)
