Forgotten girl

I can't believe I forgot to share with you this card!!
I made it on my creative getaway. I guess I was saving this one ;)
I made the bow with the same pattern paper as I used to paper piece her dress. Then I inked the paper to bring out the shape of the tails of the bow.
I can't believe I forgot to post this card, wow.

I used a Gorjuss girl stamp and coloured her up with my Copic markers.
Usually when I paper piece their outfits I fussy cut out everything except the clothing.
But on this one, I just coloured the bits of her hair on the pattern paper instead of intricate cutting out those two strands of hair. (Thanks for the tip Debbie)
I know this wouldn't work if I coloured her hair a light brown or blonde, but it worked great for this one.
I added the white gell pen for her pearl necklace.
Drew in the grass with the flick of my markers.

For the inside of the of the card I backed the recipe/index card with black card stock. I inked the pattern paper with black distress ink.

Onto My Day:
Another exciting day of working.
I received a nice business call today, the guy yelled at me, I couldn't get in a word. But when I did, and calmed him down, the customer did apologize to me, and told me he was sorry he yelled.
I told him that it wasn't very nice of him, and that I accepted his apology.
Still kind of brought my day down.
I could never work at a customer complaints department, I would end up going home crying every day.

Hope you all had a creative Wednesday :)

Tracy :)

  16. This is beautiful! I love that you were able to color in her hair and not have to paper piece that. I wouldn't have known at all if you hadn't said!

    I hate being yelled at like that. A parent did it to me once, because her son didn't pass the class (not that this was shocking really, he'd cheated his way through, and no one wanted to believe it!) I hated being yelled at like that, its like, I am a person, not a robot on the other end of the phone!

  17. Yup, me again. Backtracking again lol. In my defense my son turned 7 on Saturday and I was so busy getting ready for his party that included family friends and new neighbors from the neighborhood. Things like that make me stress a little lol. Beautiful card. It reminds me of me and the world I live in, whether its real or not LOL. That's the way I picture it when I'm not planning birthday parties. Now I'm wiped out.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
