I colored the image, and the extra ponytail, with my H20 pen (zig) and distress inks. I used black soot, brushed corduroy, wild honey, worn lipstick, spun sugar, tumbled glass, rusty hinge, and peeled paint. Once that was dry I added glossy accents to the straws and glass. I also added stardust stickles the the outside hearts.
I used the nesties scalloped circle die to cut the mat. I then colored it with tumbled glass and adhered the two pieces together.
All the patterned paper is from American Crafts Everyday collection (love love love) I cut my card base in black for a 5 x5 card. The orange is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. Pink polka dots are 2 x 3 1/2. Lastly the multi polka dots are 2 x 4 1/2. I rounded all the corners and rubbed black soot on all the edges. I adhered all the paper flat to the card base.
I adhered my colored piece with foam. Once it was on, I threaded several buttons (oriental trading) and adhered them with glue dots. I topped the buttons off with a little thread bow.
The sentiment (Hampton Art, Hugs and Kisses) was stamped with jet black on some scrap piece, cut into a little banner shape, inked, and adhered with foam.
Thanks for coming to visit, I'm hoping to share more later!!
