Marvellous Mimi

Today is Mimi day over on the Penny Black Blog, so do hop on over and see what the rest of the design team have created here.

I set myself a personal challenge for this card, to use the colour palette in the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party paper pad. I then used the red dot paper from this set to add borders to the card.

Mimi is from the new transparent set 'Big Wish' 30-098, she was stamped onto white card and coloured with Copics as in the diagram below, the cherry was glossy accented and the whole image cut out. (Colours used:- E50, E51, E53, E47, R20, R22, R35, R27, G00, G02, RV21, RV13, BG34, BG15 & YG23).

On a piece of Papermania Antique Cream patterned paper I stamped Mimi a second time and coloured the confetti and applied Stardust Stickles. The sentiment was stamped and then attached to the main card blank, using 'Spring Meadow' 06-001 Mix and Match Cardstock.  The My Mind's Eye patterned borders were then stitched onto the card to complete the design.

Tomorrow I will be sharing a city card with you.

Hugs for now

Thanks for sharing the Copics colouring - interesting to see you using pairs of colours & I like your helpful diagram. The way your sewing accents the zig zag of Mimi's hat & the cupckae container is brilliant.
