Rebecca by RI

So...here it is - my FIRST design team project for Repeat Impressions; sweet, adorable Rebecca. She's offered as the Stamp of the Week...if you're a blog subscriber (The House That Stamps Built) you can purchase her at 50% off...but you have to be a blog subscriber. W@@T, W@@T - who doesn't love a sale and isn't she beautiful? And don't forget, Repeat Impressions offers you the chance to purchase stamps the way YOU want - mounted or unmounted!

Seriously, after stamping her I could have left her just as she was, she's that pretty! But you know me, couldn't leave well enough alone so I colored her up a bit with my Copic markers. My green on the apron just did not match my DP at all; but I've learned so much from watching others with Copics - I pulled out a warm gray (W1) and colored over the green; it warmed it up and made it a fabulous match!

The ivory crocheted ribbon is from No Time To Stamp and added a nice soft vintage feel. I stamped Rebecca in Memento Rich Cocoa on a rectangle nestability; before removing the nestability I sponged the edges with PTI's Vintage Cream and VersaMagic's Sage. The base is PTI's Cream card stock and then the rest of the card is all mounted on GKD's 80 lb. Cream card stock which was also sponged the same as the nestability; then I adhered the top layer to the base with dimensionals. Rebecca is also mounted on a scalloped nestability and mounted with dimensionals. Two beautiful buttons - green & yellow tied with hemp were the final touch.

You won't want to miss what the rest of the DT has to show you - they will knock your socks off; be sure to drop by and leave them some love!

Michele, you did a fantastic job! I love your card!... AND I learned something new from reading your post... "about using gray (W1) to color over the green in order to warm things up". Ahhh, great! I love it! Thanks so much for the tip! I really hope you share more in future postings, because I am still trying to learn a lot!
