Holley's Variation Week

So each month during the second week, every artist at Sweet Pea stamps creates a card using the same stamp.  I really enjoy this week because it gives so many great ideas on how to use the same stamp with different styles, different coloring, and different techniques.  It's a real insight into all the different things you can do with a single stamp.  This month the group is using a wonderful image from artist Elisabeth Bell called Little Curls.
I did a very simple layout here using a wonderful monotone technique of all greens with the coloring of the little girl using Copic Markers BG11-BG18 and tan pants E30-E31.  She's so adorable.  Those cute bling are very nice fairly flat stickers from Sticko, they give some great shimmer and are still flat enough that they are easy to mail.  The cardstock is a wonderful shimmery green color.
 
Be sure and drop by the Sweet Pea blog and check out all the other artist's uses of this exact same stamp to see what other great ideas they have using this image then check out the wonderful sales at the Sweet Pea store.
 
Cheers, Holley

Lovely card. I like your colouring of the cute image, and how you've put it at a quirky angle on the card and how you've framed it.
