Brave Strong Wild

Hi friends! Today I'm popping in with a just for fun kind of card featuring Sassy & Crafty Stamps.

Over the past several months, I've really been trying to be consistent at practicing my coloring skills.  I'm just starting to try to tackle my nemesis - faces. This particular image from the Brave, Strong, Wild set didn't feel as daunting of a start since it's only a partial face and there's not a lot of coloring needed for the hair. That being said, I struggled with the markers I had on hand when I was coloring and her skin came out more yellow than the olive complexion I was hoping for. I did have a lot of fun doing those wispy little hairs framing her forehead, and who doesn't love a little aqua eye shadow?

I thought it would be fun to have her peeking out from behind some flowers, so I picked the lotus from the Find Yourself set and stamped, masked, and stamped a curve across a panel of white cardstock. I then colored with Copics and fussy cut, to pop up over her on dimensional tape.  I added a sentiment from Sassy Girls: OMG to this panel, then stamped the title sentiment from Brave, Strong Wild, cut it out and matted on a black sentiment strip die cut.  A few glitzy enamel dots finish things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic start to your weekend!
