MFT August Release Countdown - Day 3!

Hello friends!  It's day 3 of the My Favorite Things August Release Countdown!  I have a sweet little card to share with you today featuring the newest Pure Innocence Stamp Set called "Tu-tu Sweet".

I just love her cute little ballerina dress!  It reminds me so much of my daughter's first dance recital last year.  I combined this set with the new Spotlight Stencil and the Take the Stage Die-namics.  I love all of these sets.  The spotlight stencil adds so much interest to your card and the stage curtains are such a joy to work with and very versatile.

I first created my background by blending some Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire & Black Soot) onto a piece of Smooth White Card Stock.  I then stamped my little ballerina with Copic friendly Black Ink on some Neenah Solar White 110 lb Card Stock and colored her with Copics.  I used the coordinating die to cut her out.

I then diecut the curtains from smooth white card stock using the Take the Stage Die-namics and then colored them with Copics.  I've notated all of the colors that I used below.  Lastly I stamped my sentiment with Black Ink and used a white gel pen in the background for some added detail.

Copic Colors Used:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
Hair: Y21, YR21, YR23, E31
Light Pink: RV10, RV13, RV14, RV17
Dark Pink: RV06, RV09, RV69
Whites: 0, C00, C0, C2, C4, C5

Floor: W00, W0, W1, W2, W4
