I stamped Uptown Girls Madison has a Margarita in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics. I pulled out my pencil crayons and OMS for some extra shading.
The paper is BasicGrey Sweet Threads with SU Old Olive and Rose Red. I made a Simply Scallops border and added a bit of SU Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon on top. The flower is made with the Prima Donna Petals die and two Leafy Flourish underneath. I embossed the flower with my swiss dots embossing folder for a little texture and added a green rhinestone to the middle. No Uptown Girl is complete without some sparkle so I added two teeny tiny rhinestones to her dress and added some glitter around her! Her margarita glass has several coats of clear glaze pen to make it shine.
Okay, are you ready? Let's step back in time, 23 years ago, and look at the card that started it all for me - my love of stamping and card making. Laugh along with me...and check out her bangs!
