Harvest Cutie Pie MMSC76

 So typing my title just reminded me of my cousin who is named "Harvest."  I just think it is so pretty as a name.  Anyhow, on with the show.  :)

I love the old applique that I Glimmer Mist colored to match.  And my favorite, seam binding, bows in the corners.  Graphic 45 and recipe card papers.  Felt swirls and pearls.  I just had a blast making this card!

I thought I would try something a little different for this week's image.

First I stamped and embossed this Harvest Cutie Pie from our weekly sponsor, DRS Designs, in white powder.  Then I began to color her with my copics.  Much to my surpise and delight. . . the Copics colored the white embossed lines.  So each piece of my little cutie could be any color I desired.  Or any Copic color I have that is.  :)  I was able to do some cool outlining and other neat effects.  I added a close up below.

Check out her hair.  First I colored it all over with brown.  Then I went over the embossing with yellow.  Presto!  Like magic, wish my highlights were that easy.  I colored and colored on this little gal into the wee hours of the morning!  I also used Gina K paper for the first time.  Total yumminess and shiny Copic coloring with no bleed through.

This weeks Midnight Madness "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.
Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

Thanks for lookin' y'all, and have a great week.
