Ever since I saw the Easter Blossoms stamp set in the Occasions Mini, I thought, what if I inked that delightful little girl in colors instead of a silhouette?
The other night, I experimented a bit. This is what I came up with......
By inking the stamp with markers, I was able to have a real girl! I'll have to admit, the first one went in the trash, but the second try made me happy.
First, I imagined the features on the girl and used markers to color those features. Then I huffed, and puffed too for good measure, and stamped her on some Whisper White. I added some little curls with the More Mustard marker and touched up some of the flesh tones and the face with the Blush Blossom marker.
I used the BIG GUY and the Ovals die to cut the image with the largest oval.
Then I pulled out an old stamp set. I think it was the first SU stamp set I bought. It's called Watercolor Minis and I used one of the stamps to do the leaves around the edge. By the way, there is a set in the Occasions Mini, Baby Blossoms, that reminds me a lot of this set.
I used my non SU shape cutter to cut some larger ovals to frame the design.
