Just the Way You Are

Today, we’re welcoming Debbie Olson back to the blog for some fun with Pure Innocence.

I am delighted to be guest-posting on the My Favorite Things blog today and tomorrow! When I saw the Pure Innocence Just the Way You Are image, I knew that it would be perfect for the young recipient whom I had in mind.


Shown below are the Copic markers that I used to color the image.


For the inside of my card, I used the Blueprints 15 Die-namics for the pink mat layer, then stamped the focal image in MFT’s Pink Lemonade Premium Dye Ink and the sentiment in the Black Licorice Hybrid Ink Pad.


To add that pale blue glow around the PI girl I used Copic BG000, softened on the edges with Colorless Blender. To cut the card front, windmill mat layer, and star, I used the Blueprints 15 Die-namics set again. I punched a 1/16″ hole in the star to turn it into a tag. For the ribbon, I dyed a length of white rayon seam binding with Copic R21 Various Inks (re-inker). The patterned papers are from Echo Park’s 6 x 6″ Splendid Sunshine pad.


That’s it for today. A huge thank you to MFT Stamps for all of this paper-and-ink goodness!
