Crisp, clean and white...

...with spashes of black, red and green! You like her? This is Penny Black's Christmas Usher and she was a SNAP to colour up! Did you notice? I didn't even add any shadows under her feet! OMG! I just noticed myself and may have to go rectify that pronto...but maybe not...because I kinda like the very clean look just the way it is.

I stamped her with Tuxedo Black memento ink on papertrey white paper. I used papertrey because I often use that cardstock for the base of my cards due to its sturdiness and I wanted the whites to match.

She was quickly coloured with the following copic markers, and I say quickly because I really didn't blend at all, just swiftly went from colour to colour and let it blend naturally. NO pencils were used on this card!

E000, 00, 11 (flesh) 33, 35, 27 (hair)
R22, 24, 59 (dress)
G82, 24, 94, 99 (tree)
Y11, YR23 (glow around star?)
YR23, Y 26, 28 (tray below tree)

The sentiment is also Penny Black and I added a teeny tiny gold bow on the cake plate, some black glitter to her dress, and stickles around the glow of the star (?) above the tree! Done, done and DONE! A really quickie card and I made 6 of them for my stash! All stamps were purchases in Chatham at Paper Pickle.

Tomorrow, more Mo Manning in Rubbah goodness!

Perfectly simple....thanks for inspiration....I have this stamp and have not had a chance to ink it up. I need a few more so plan on inking this baby up.

I wondered when I would see this girl inked up! The black glitter is the perfect accent to a simply gorgeous card.

Ooooh, I love this!! You may not have blended, but you did some shaping on the arms, shoulders and legs...and beautifully, too, I might add.
