Mary Margaret


Hi everyone, meet Mary Margaret, the Teacher's Pet!  Mary Margaret is a beautiful digital image from Michelle Perkett Studios. Isn't she just gorgeous!!! It took me a few tries of coloring her hair before I was able to master shading but I'm really pleased with how wonderful she turned out! After I finished the card I realized I wanted the apple green to make it pop more but was too lazy to print out another image just for that so red it is, LOL!!!

My card base is PTI Berry Sorbet (love this color) layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White then Kiwi Kiss and a 1 1/2 strip of patterned paper.  I have a thing about straight edges so I wrapped some 1/8" white ribbon to cover up the edge of the patterned paper.  The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges and layered the image on to a slightly larger piece of PTI Berry Sorbet before attaching to the card base with mounting tape.  To embellish the card I added a tiny bow and some white pearls.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
