Patterned Paper Collection Inspired Colored Image

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The theme for the challenge is Girls, Girls, Girls-Majorly Girly/Tomboy. I am using an image from one of our two sponsors, My Besties, for this challenge.

I printed the image on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the image using Copic markers. I got my color inspiration from an old American Crafts paper pack, My Girl. I fussy cut the image leaving a small border around the printed image. Since this is a large image to fussy cut, I took a break in the middle of the cutting to rest my hand.

I am using scraps from the 6x6 AC My Girl paper pad. I created a simple collage of the scraps by adhering it to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" typing paper.

I am taking out the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Stitch Piercer from my craft chest. I ran this through the collage for a running stitch but this is less noticeable after I covered the panel with vellum. I am using another WRMK Sew Easy Heart Stitch Piercer. I ran this on one of the scrap patterned paper and stitched the hearts with DMC floss. To make the hearts pop, I inked the inside of the heart with Tim Holtz Distress ink and pounced a brush with Ranger Perfect Pearl powder. I created this into a border by fussy cutting the top portion of the hearts. I grounded the colored image to this heart border.

I covered the collage of patterned papers with vellum to mute this busy background and make the image pop. I die cut the vellum using a stitched rectangle die from Mama Elephant Peek A Frame Creative Cuts. I adhered the stitched heart border to the bottom of the panel. I adhered a cut along sentiment from the paper pack and cross stapled this to the top of the panel. I adhered the image with foam tape.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
