A little anime

So is everyone still stuffed from Thanksgiving? too.
I used a couple of vegetarian recipes from The Pioneer Woman and they were DELICIOUS! And since my family was still eating left-overs all weekend, that meant more time for Mom to stamp!

Here's one of the cards I came up with... My friend let me borrow a couple of new stamps that she got from Sugar Nellie. You can see the other card I made here. Since I used so many colors on the first card, I decided to make this card look completely different.
I colored the main image with my grey Copics and just a hint of pink on her cheeks and the bow in her hair. I dug around in my black and white scrap bin (yes....I have my scraps organized by color) and was thrilled to find a small piece of patterned paper from an old collection by Love, Elsie. I thought it worked perfectly for the whole "anime" look that I was going for.

To finish it off, I did some hand stitching around the border and added some thick felt ribbon by Creative Imaginations and layered on a cute patterned ribbon on top.

This isn't my usual style, but I was really happy with how it came out. Sometimes it's hard to step out of your comfort zone, but give it a try sometime. You may surprise yourself!

I really like the way you kept her monochromatic. Nice.

This just gave me an Idea to what kind of card I going to give to my friend.
