Love You- Moulin Mae

Since the card I posted earlier features a stamp that you might not be able to get, I wanted to post a card with a stamp that you can get - and it's a very pretty stamp at that! This card features Moulin Mae, from Some Odd Girl.

I started by stamping Mae on a piece of Copic Marker paper and colored her in with my Copics. I wanted the color scheme to be feminine, so I worked with pinks and browns, and just a touch of silver/white. I have a weakness for white hair, so that's what Mae is sporting this time around. After she was colored, I cut her out and set her aside while I worked on the rest of the panels.

I created an A2 base from MFT's Primitive Cream cardstock. I also cut a piece of brown cardstock to measure slightly smaller (4 by 5 1/4), as well as a small brown panel measuring 2 1/2 by 4 1/2. I cut two pieces of patterned paper and adhered them to the panels. I chose a pink and cream stripe to go behind Mae and a subtle grey stripe for the background.

Since the card uses such feminine colors, I decided to have a love sentiment. Using MFT's Sweet Stack Labels die, I cut a background from brown cardstock and a circle from cream cardstock. I also used my Bigshot to cut out a brown "love you" sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's Love You die.

I adhered the circle to the label with foam squares, then adhered the sentiment using my Xyron Sticker Maker. Since the top was a bit empty, I added a small red heart. I adhered Mae to the pink panel with foam squares, and adhered all the panels together.

As a last touch, I added some enamel dots to the bottom of the card, as well as on each side of the circle sentiment.

  1. And this card here demonstrates another reason I love your work - white hair!! I tend to do the same colour hair all the time. I think I colour the images based on my own appearance. You challenge me to think outside the box. Thank you! Gorgeous card, you're amazing!

    1. Thanks so much, Kylie! *hugs*

      I think we're so lucky that there are many fantasy-type stamps out there that make even the wildest of hair colors look fun. :D
