Ellie's Birthday

Hello there!  I hope that you are all having a great weekend and that you are finding some time for lots of fun stuff - like stamping :)

I just wanted to share a card I made this week using the gorgeous Saturated Canary image called Ellie's Birthday. Did you know that Bizzy Becs store now sells these gorgeous images?  You can find them right HERE.

And rather than colour the whole image I decided to paper piece a lot of it and just used my Copic markers to colour her skin, hair and part of her boots.  Sometimes images with a lot of colouring space can be slightly intimidating when you're starting out but they don't need to be! There are so many ways to tackle these types of images, either with Copics, pencils, watercolours or paper piecing like I have done.

Card/Paper: Echo Park patterned paper. You can find some great paper packs HERE.
Other: Copics, ribbon, stitching.

Happy Stamping!
Jodene :)
