Some Odd Girl - Drinks All Around Piper. I love how fun and summery this digi is, and how versatile it can be! You can color the bottles Piper is carrying as a beer for adults or fizzy soda for younger audiences. And how fun would it be to create a picnic-styled background to put Piper in?!
For my card, I decided to go a bit more abstract and use some fun summer colors -- yellows, golds, oranges and bright teal. I love how much this color combination pops, and it's just a quintessential summer for me.
I started by printing out Piper and coloring her in with Copics. I knew that my background was going to be yellows and oranges, so I made sure to use colors that would pop against it -- purple, blue and a touch of dark red for her hair. When I was done coloring, I added a couple of highlights with a white gel pen and carefully cut Piper out with sharp scissors.
The rest of the card came together really quickly. I cut down the piece of patterned paper with the rays and matted it onto some orange cardstock. I adhered it to the bright teal A2 card base (4¼x5½") with foam tape. I adhered Piper to the front, then added a couple of enamel dots as embellishment.
I have to admit, I struggled a bit with the sentiment. But then, I came across this chipboard sticker I've had in my crafty stash for ages, and it fit just perfectly with the card-- size was just right and the colors matched up. What a lucky crafty find!! I added it to the card, and the card was complete!
