Orange you a good friend!

Hello everyone!  It's Thursday so that means it's my time to show a card for Quixotic Inspirations.  This week I used Kraftin' Kimmie's Olivia Orange and the inside sentiment is from a Paper Makeup stamp set called Little Moments Mini Sentiments.


I'm also really pleased that Quixotic Paperie are now stocking my fave kraft cardstock - I love using this for my card bases.  I had a lot of fun colouring Olivia Orange in with my Copics - really great for practicing those shading skills - you can't help but do a good job with them!  

I highlighted the pearls in her hair and the dress trims with my Sakura clear Stardust pen - just right for those teeny tiny areas!  In the close up below you can also see where I've used my Viva Decor Pearl Pen in cream.  As much as I love my flat backed pearls and gems, sometimes you just need something smaller and Viva Decors allow you to control whatever size you want.  I gotta experiment more with them!

Okay, that's it for me today - see you next week with my very first tutorial!
