My Little Explorer

Good morning, Friends. It’s another I Brake for Stamps Tuesday DT project. I’m sharing a sweet stamp from the store called “Girl Picking Flowers.” Isn’t she cute? When I saw this stamp I knew I had to color her.
For this card I cut two Picot Edge Nestabilites in green and blue cardstock then adhered them adjacent to each other. This allows the green cut to standout against the designer paper for better contrast.
My large curly rose was sprayed with Sapphire Glimmer Mist to give it some sparkle and color. I love this technique because if you don’t have the right color of flowers on hand you can always change it with a little mist. You can also use the Copic Air Brush system to achieve a similar effect.  
These are the Copics I used to color my little explorer.

Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs – Basic Grey
Flowers – WOC
Dies/Punches – Spellbinders
Ribbon – Ofray

You can get this stamp and so many others at I Brake for Stamps online store. Use my coupon code, SAVE10CATHY for 10% off your purchase.

Have a great week!
