I stamped the fab, Suzanne from the Victoria Case for SCACD Everyday Gal Collection, in Memento ink on Neenah Solar white cardstock. Then I colored her with my copics. I added some sparkle to her jewelry and some of the bags with my copic glitter pens.
I wanted to do a gate-fold card so I went to SCS and found this tutorial. I rarely mention my Scor-Pal but I do love it. I use it on every card and it helps so much with projects.
I also get asked often if I color my image first or pick out papers first. I use to always pick out papers first but then I discovered I'd only use my "favorite" papers so I started coloring the image first and then I match the papers. I find this way I use papers I normally wouldn't and it helps me challenge myself.
I just followed the tutorial, then added the papers and embellishments. I also doodled around the image as it just needed an extra "umph". I also decorated the inside. The sentiment is stamped in SU Garden Green.
To finish it off I just tied a ribbon around it.
