Polka Dot Pals Khadija | Whimsy Stamps February Release

Hello everyone & happy Sunday!

Today I'm sharing a card using one of the newest Polka Dot Pals, Khadija and paring it with another new release, Elegant Wood Frames! I think these two stamps really go well together, she is such a pretty fairy and the frame has a magical feel. 

I began my card by stamping my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto #80 Neenah Solar White cardstock. I stamped extra flowers from the Elegant Wood Frames stamp set and extra butterflies from the Polka Dot Pals stamp set, I knew I would need to fill in the scene. I colored the images with Copic markers, and then cut them out using my Brother Scan n Cut machine. I also colored the inside of the frame and her eyes with a light blue Copic marker.

I first began assembling my card by creating a A2 sized card base from #80 Neenah Solar White cardstock. I trimmed down a piece of light blue cardstock with a rectangle die then adhered it to the card base using liquid glue. Then I remembered I needed to stamp my sentiment before going any farther. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped the sentiment Cherish from the Elegant Wood Frames stamp set. I popped Khadija up with foam tape and added a flower to her hair. I used a combination of liquid glue and foam tape to adhere the flowers and butterflies around Khadija and the wood frame.

I added highlights with a white Gelly Roll pen on most of the images, somehow I've gotten into the habit of doing this and I think it looks so good it just adds a little something extra for interest. I used my Nuvo Shimmer pen on all of the flowers and butterflies, and then added acrylic bubbles around my card.

And that's my card for today! Khadija is a ton of fun to color, and I just love the frame with all of the flowers and butterflies around her.
