Crafty Girl

This is one of the first purchases I made from . Every craft girl needs this "Crafty Girl". So here is the process of making a card with her. I really had no idea where I would end up or what the card would look like when I was done, but I think I like it ;-) 

First thing I did was found a piece of white flat and since I am cheap I like to use my scraps :-) Stamped the girl on it....
 I then thought it might be a good idea to figure out what the base of my card is going to be. Oh snap! It is 1/4 inch to short :-(
Decided I probably would not have liked it all one pattern so the mess up in my measurements ended up a bonus! I just added this strip of paper.
A very enjoyable hour was spent coloring her and her craft room with my Copic markers :-)
As I was coloring, I was also thinking of what I could do to the edge of the card to spruce it up a bit.
Distressed and inked the edges....
And place it on my card. Added a cute flower and called it good :-)
Until next time -- HAPPY CRAFTING :-)

OH HOW CUTE!!! I have that very same paper and am pretty sure that I have used it for this image in the past as well ;)
I LOVE the distressed edges and the tape over the patterned paper.
Super fun card!

I am so happy you are enjoying your FBD Stamps!

Big smiles,
