Stamping Bella - Sunny Is Stylish

Hi Crafters,
Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Now sunglasses at the ready coz it's a bright one...


I've seen a few beautiful creations on the internet lately using orange and pink together so I thought I'd have a go at it. I decided to use Uptown Girl - 'Sunny is Stylish' as the image and sentiment lends itself to using bright colours I think. I found the gorgeous sun paper on my computer, it's in the Alphabet soup collection from Just So Scrappy and the pink paisley patterned papers were off-cuts in my box so I don't know where they are from, sorry.
She was a dream to colour with my Promarkers and I stamped her twice and layered up her jacket, case and sunglasses. There are lots of examples of her on the Web and I used these to help me colour the folds in her skirt.
My card base is a centre step card and I've kept the details to a minimum, making her the focus, just adding a bow in orange grosgrain ribbon and a bright pink ribbon flower.
Here's a side view to show the stepper card...

See you soon,
 
Lorraine

Stunning gorgeous card. Love pink and orange together and a fab idea to put her on a stepper card, so perfect for these stamps as they are fairly large. Beautifully coloured and I love the layering you've done with her. I must say you've been posting some stunning makes recently, can't wait to see what you make next! :) xx
