I have two cards to share and I think I'll start with Pure Innocence Violin Girl.

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and done up with a combination of paper piecing and copic colouring. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Vanity Fair 6x6 pad. I added a kraft card stock flower which I cut out with the upsy daisy die-namics. I cut the monarch border die-namic from striped paper and for added interest placed rhinestones in the negative area of the border. The sentiment from the set fit perfectly on the file tab die-namic.

On the inside I stamped the girl again with Memento Potter's Clay ink then I stamped one of the sentiments from Classic Kids sentiments mini, with black.

Next up is Pure Innocence Blowing Bubbles.

I always LOVED blowing bubbles as a kid, especially out at the cottage, where they'd land on water and create pretty colours from the soap when they popped.

I couldn't resist paper piecing this little cutie either, so I chose cheery papers from the My Mind's Eye Life of the Party 6x6 pad. The rest of her is coloured with copic markers. The layout is SC367.

Here's a detail shot of the bubbles. I stamped them as a subtle background on the blue paper but I also wanted to add them to the image panel to look like they're coming right off the bubble wand. I stamped them with black, cut out three of the circles and glued them down. Then I did the faux epoxy technique...a layer of crystal Stickles which I let dry completely, then a nice thick layer of glossy accents.

On the inside I did the same layout as my first card, which adds a fun touch but still leaves space to write a message.

Here are the die-namics I used:

Thanks for stopping by!
