Another Featured Stamper Card

Well, I did another card by Kharmagirl, today's Featured Stamper. I chose this card to case this time. I have had this set for some time, but never inked it up! How sad is that?
I kept the layout, but changed quite a few things. First, I paper pieced the girl. I chose Basic Grey's Blush, which set the tone for the rest of the changes. I used SU's Ruby Red and Creamy Caramel. The ribbon was just a happy coincidence. I have a varied collection of ribbon, and this one worked perfectly for the colors and design. The arms of the girl and the cup and steam were colored with copic markers. Since the paper pieces were so intricate and small (quite a challenge to cut it out perfectly!), I used my Xyron machine. I forget about that nifty little machine sometimes. It worked great for this because there isn't much of a surface area for tape. I added the metal dots at the last minute to balance off the card. Thanks for stopping by! Scroll down for the next post.
