Mod Marci

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend! I've been catching up on chores while trying to keep the girls out of trouble. Georgia figured out how to get up on the kitchen counter this morning despite our efforts to keep her off, LOL!!! At the moment the girls are in the basement window meeting one of the squirrels that moved in our backyard this past summer so I thought to share this card while there is a quiet moment. The image is the Mod Marci rubber stamp by La-La-Land Crafts.

My card base is Elegant Eggplant layered with True Black then the Music Note Patterner Paper. The shadow layer is patterned paper from the Utopia Collection layered on True Black. The image was stamped on White Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in using copic markers. I rounded the corners and layered the image on True Black. To embellish the card I added lots of stitching, a pretty bow and small silver brads in each corner of the card base.

Here are the copic colors I used:
Hat: V20, V22, V25, V28
Hair: Y21, YR23, E33
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11, R20
Shirt: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78
Pants: E42, E44, E47
Ground: E40, E41, E42
Guitar: E13, E15, E17, E19
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
