Daddy's Little Girl

Thinking about Father's day and when I looked at my Tilda Picking Peaches stamp, all I could see was her holding her Daddy's hand...

So I drew Tilda's Daddy to guide her, and instead of a basket of peaches, made her a purse... perhaps Daddy's taking the lucky little girl to her favorite toy store.

I found this paper in my stash that I thought might look cool, but unfortunately can't recall who made it or what it is called (my leftover pieces don't have the name of it... it's probably buried on the card! Note to self: write down the make of the paper BEFORE gluing it down) Doh!

I layered the background on dark brown Bazzil cardstock, ran a zig zag stitch around it, and popped it up on foam dimensionals. Then the computer-generated sentiment was punched and added. Tilda's Daddy was attached flat to the back too. Then I popped Tilda herself up on foam to create the illusion of depth.

I used my Copics to colour everything of course; and also on the (formerly) white ribbon to match Tilda's dress as well as the (formerly) white flowers.

A few dark pearls kept this easel card fairly simple.

Here are the colours used:

Hair: E30, E31, E33, D35, E37
Skin: E000, E00
Dress, bib and socks: YR00, YR02, E50
Shoes and purse: E30, E31, E35, RV04
Sentiment: B21, B24
Ribbon and flowers: YR00, YR02

I hope you like it; it is so much fun to alter these images to create a whole new scene for them!

Maureen your card is wonderful, so inventive. Your drawing of the father is fabulous. I suppose this just goes to show how versatile our 'Maggies' can be..The possibilities are endless.
