Connie-Cornflower Blue

Isn't this Karen Middleton image from Sweet Pea Stamp's 
plate #194 titled "Cornflower Blue" simply gorgeous??

In keeping with her name I kept the same "cornflower blue" color scheme throughout.
I colored the image with Copic markers and then cut it out and
ran a black Copic marker around the edges to cover up those
little bits of white where I missed the lines.
I sponged some Memento "Summer Sky" around the edges of her
blouse to define the image against the white backdrop.

Supplies used include embossing folder by Couture Creations "Drink Me",
white Offray ribbon from Wal Mart, pop dots.
I kept the card on the simple side so not to overwhelm this wonderful stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!
