You are a Peach Card

Happy Friday!

Fridays always tend to be a good day I think.  Today’s card features the gorgeous Penny Black Stamp – You Are a Peach which is by Mo Manning.  I think this girl is just so cute and I have been wanting to colour her for a while since I probably got her about 2 months ago!  I coloured her with my prismacolour pencils and added in a path and some grass to my main panel of the card.  I also got out my sewing machine to give her a bit of a frame as I wanted to keep the embellishments simple so the image was the main focal point of the card but I didn’t want it to be too plain.  So some white stitching gave it some more detail but doesn’t stand out too much.  The papers and embellishments I used are from the American Crafts Dear Lizzie Collection.

Hope you have a great weekend.  I’ll be back on Monday with a copic marker card since I haven’t done one of them for a while.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Ooooh… I love this stamp too! Gorgeous card Kristy, I really like the stitched border! How did you create the grass – is there a tutorial? Whenever I try to do grass it looks all wrong…

    • Thanks heaps. I don’t think I have seen a tutorial for doing grass but there probably are ones out there. I just flick from where the base of the grass will be and lift the pressure as I flick so the line of the pencil (or copic marker) gets less. I think I have got better at ‘flicking’ as I have practised but also the motion is the same as when you flick to do hair colouring for copic markers so you could try googling copic marker hair tutorials. There is one on the Copic Oz blog here or here is the address if the link doesn’t work http://copicoz.blogspot.com.au/search/label/hair. So even if you are not using copics it still may help. I think it also helps make the grass look more realistic if you change the angle of the grass. Hope that helps 🙂
