Marij Rahder Suzy 4
For Suzy I used Copics with chalks for the blush on the cheeks. This is the first time I have attempted black hair and I am delighted with the way it turned out. For the dress I used Copics highlighted with a Spica pen and for the gloves I used Smooches and Lipstick Spica pen.
As this card was going to be hand delivered for a friend's birthday I thought a flower would be different. I searched through my stash and could not see anything I liked so I created this one using the Magnolia DooHickey Poinsettia die. I used 2 of the large flowers and one of the small. I then curled the petals around a pen to give them a bit of shape and sprayed them with Shimmerz Spritz. Once they were dry I curled them again and Distress inked the edges using Barn Door. The leaves are from a Marianne D die called Frames / Leaves.
Suzy is matted on a yellow Nestabilities Oval, a black Nestabilities Labels Twenty-one, a yellow Nellies Multi Flower cut in half and a black Nestabilities Circle also cut in half. The background paper is CM and the sentiment is Life Sentiments from Kaisercraft.
