Softpencil Tuesdays.

Hello and happy Tuesday to you!  Yes, yes, it's time for another Softpencil Tuesday.   Up for something sweet and totally girly?  Hehe!!!  This is Lilly, she is super super cute and darling!  And I did a little paper piecing for this card....  our adorable Lilly needs a very pretty dress, right?!

How do I do that?

  1. I printed out two Lilly.  The first one, color as usual with my Copics, and the second...  I inked up a polka dot background stamp (Impression Obsession) with Hero Arts butter bar shadow ink, then cover the 'yellow' dots with glossy accent, then allow dry.
  2. Color the reminder Lilly's dress and bow with Copics, cut them out and adhere.
What do you think?  Not too shabby... I like this way better than figuring out which side of pattern paper to feed my printer, haha!!!

Goodies that I used:
Softpencil digi stamps Lilly
Polka dot background from Impression Obsession
Paper from K&Company
Twine, stickles, blings, glossy accent
