A InStyle Sneak Peek of "Vickie"!

As soon as I saw this new image for InStyle Stamps I saw roses and a very girlie card!

Isn't Vickie just beautiful! so "InStyle"!! I colored her with my Copics, and then high lighted with white gel pen.
The Colors were all determined from the gorgeous pattern paper - Oh this paper from Graphic 45 is just wonderful! It is a really heavy weight pattern paper, and is double sided. It is hard to see it but there is a faint diamond pattern in the background, it is the same color as the base card stock I chose, I was so happy my card stock matched so perfectly and now that I have uploaded the card... HA .. you can't see the background pattern! Oh well -
I also picked a scrap pinkish color for matting Vickie - this was pretty close to the stripe pattern. I Doodled with my white gel pen all around the edge of the card and the mat around Vickie, this mat was cut with my Nestibilities. For some added drama, I carefully cut out one of the roses and pulled it out and over the oval image, I love doing this makes me feel better about not covering up so much of the pretty paper.

I added a small piece of Martha Stewart Satin ribbon across the bottom corner, and then dotted it with three pearled iron on dots.

My sentiment had me stumped for a while.... I pulled out things like Girlfriends Forever and I am glad you are my friend.... but then I saw this one - and I don't know - it just seemed to funny to not use with Vickie... now common really do you think she does her own cleaning? Not in that hat! The Inkadinkado sentiment is stamped on a K&Company title label that I inked the edges of.

I love this one... and I can't wait to do Vickie in purple and red!!! Be ready to fall in love with some fabulous new images that are coming this week to InStyle Stamps... and for more Sneak Peeks Visit the BLOG!

Have a wonderful Monday!!
