My CDS Guest Designer Debut! CC234

Hi Everyone! Today I proudly debut my first card as a clear dollar stamps guest designer. I am thrilled beyond thrilled and honored beyond measure to be a cds guest designer! For this card, I chose to utilize the color challenge for this week at splitcoast stampers #cc234 where the colors this week are Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. I did add very vanilla for my neutral. Do you ever start on an idea and then part way thru realize just how involved it is? Yeah, that happened today with my paper piecing Little Miss here, but I had to finish and I am glad I did. i paper pieced her hair bow, her dress, her socks, and the ottoman she sits on using either side of one sheet of Razzleberry Lemonade dsp. I used my watercolor pencils for her hair, spoon/bowl. and her skin, adding just a touch of rosey cheeks. It was alot of work but totally worth it! I hope you like it! And check back tomorrow, I hope to have another cds guest designer card to show you, and maybe even two!
On to the details:
Stamps: Get off your tuffett (CDStamps) designed by Shawne
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla, Razzleberry Lemonade dsp
Ink: Stazon Jetblack, Melon Mambo
Tools/Accessories: Dahlia & Circle Nesties, Bermuda Bay ribbon, watercolor
pencils & pen, Eyelet border punch
Thanks for stopping by! It really does mean alot to me! Hope to see you again soon!
