Happy Birthday to a Shopaholic

Third day. Third commission. Do you see a pattern forming here? Uh huh. I may be part of DT's, but I also work behind the scenes creating stuffs for 'customers' too. Customers in inverted commas, because it isn't really a business. It's just something I do to try and fund my craft addicition. I just forget to share these projects with you all sometimes! :P Heh.

So here is the fantastic Sarah Shopper from Kraftin' Kimmies Everyday Girls 2 collection. She was perfect for a recent order, so I couldn't wait to get her coloured up to match some papers from Echo Park Springtime collection. She has been coloured using the usual ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. I added some Warm Greys underneath her to look like a pavement and the standard blue glow around her. I trimmed out the image panel and added some stitching using a Melon Mambo marker from SU!

The pinks and purples in the Echo Park paper work so well. I love them. I've used up a load of the scraps by die cutting some flowers using a PTI die and adding them around the main image panel. The sentiments have been created using my alphabet stamps from Lawn Fawn. I've added a bunch of buttons threaded with pink natural twine and some Kaisercraft gemstones. Bosh.

Hope you likey. xo
