I'm getting ready for a day on the town... mostly it's a big grocery shopping trip but I've got a few fun stops planned as well. I just can't resist popping into the big local crafty store, it may not be a Michael's or Hobby Lobby but it will do in a pinch. ;)
So this quickie card came together completely different than I had originally planned. At first I was all set on making another Halloween card for today's post but when I was flipping through my Pure Innocence stamps this adorable little pumpkin patch gal caught my eye instead. Sure, I could still make that work for a Halloween card... kind of like the day before Halloween when she is gathering up all her pumpkins to carve. But when it came time to find some papers that would work I pulled out this Simple Stories Year-ography pack that I got in a recent order and that's when the new direction hit me. I mean, how could I resist using that 4x6 piece of paper when it practically takes care everything (embellishing, color palette, sentiment...) leaving only the colored image for me to do? Awesome!
Speaking of coloring, it's funny but she actually kinda reminds me of myself a bit... short brown hair, roundish and always found in blue jeans and sweaters this time of year, LOL! To give the clothes texture I used some colorless blender on a scrap of denim for the jeans (you can see it done here) and on a scrap of terry clothe for the sweater. If you haven't tried that technique yet, I highly recommend giving it a go... I love how it adds interest to even simple images. :)
Alrighty, time for me to hit the road. Have a good one!
