Birthday Lizzie

I've been away for so long I'm not sure I remember how to do this, but here goes nuthin'! This is a card I made for my cousins Birthday way back in December. I sort of got discouraged by all the digi work I was doing to meet challenge deadlines and just gave up I think. I find that if I just work on my inspirations and do my own thing I seem to be more motivated to design cards. I have been working on a few Valentine's Day cards which I hope to post in the next few days, but I had this card photographed and ready to go so I used her. This is a digital image from Sugar Nellie and once again I am in love with this little girlie. Her name is Lizzie and she has been added to my collection of digital stamps from this line. I get them from Funkykits. My cousin is a redhead so I colored her to look like her and tried to use some of "her" colors as she would put it. Peaches, greens, etc. Unfortunately I made this card so long ago I can't remember what color Copics I used. E's, G's, and YG's I'm sure, which tells you a lot, right??? Sorry. :-(  I see some of the blog's I follow cluster all the Copic's they use and photo them and post that photo for the colors, so maybe I should give that a try. I don't always remember to jot down the colors as I use them.
I've added this close up photo so you can see the detail of these stamps. Practically all the shading is already done and you just need to color!! I hope you've this little Lizzie and thank you so much for stopping by.
