SOG - Midnight

This card started with Some Odd Girl's Royal stamp set. After stamping the princess on Copic marker paper, I colored her in with my Copics. I spent quite a while debating which colors to use for her dress, until I finally settled on darker blue-violet hues. Once the coloring was done, I carefully cut the image out with my scissors.

Since the image had rich and dark colors, I decided on a darker background. I created a standard top-folding A2 card (4 1/4 by 5 1/2") from Some Odd Girl's Black cardstock. While I had my paper trimmer out, I also cut a few panels from Simply Gorjuss patterned paper. The large panel measures 4 by 5 1/4", and the smaller panel measures 3 by 4".

The small panel was blending into the background too much, so I matted it onto a piece of dark purple cardstock and adhered it to the large panel. I tied a black ribbon around the bottom of the card, then adhered the background to the base.

I adhered the girl to the card with foam squares. It needed a little something extra, so I also added 3 paper flowers to the bottom right corner of the panel.

  1. *sigh* She's just dreamy! You have a knack for beautiful colouring, and fantastic design. I love seeing what you come up with.

    1. Thanks so much, Kylie! I do feel like I'm getting better at coloring, too. It's really relaxing to do. :D

  2. OH wow the dress is so nicely coloured! Just like those cartoon/animation on TV!
