LOSTie Spring Card Kit #2 - Colleen

The card I'm sharing with you today is from Colleen's card kit. I had a lot of fun with this image and Colleen was sweet enough to stamp the image on some patterned paper so we had the option to paper piece a portion of the image if we wanted. I chose to do that, paper piecing Hanna's coat/outfit. I think the center part of her outfit is meant to be a dress, and therefore a different color, but I took the lazy way out and didn't want to do that extra cutting, so she's got a matching coat and outfit!

When I made this card, I did not have the right colors of Copic markers for the umbrella so I had to use my SU markers and you can really tell the difference in coloring quality. The marker lines are clearly visible with the SU markers, which of course meant I knew which Copic colors needed to be added to my shopping cart for next time!

The only other thing I wanted to mention is that Hanna's boots are coated with Diamond Glaze. I wanted the boots to be shiny like traditional plastic/rubber rain boots and I think that I achieved that look when you see the card in person.

To see all the cards made with this kit, use keyword SCK11 on SCS.

  1. I did the same thing Jess, I just cut out the whole coat and dress. Hey she's a stylish girl, and she has a dress to match her raincoat! :) I like the little pearls you added. So cute!

  2. This card is soooo cute! I love the paper pieceing and how you added some clear shine to her boots! What a clever idea! Glad you had fun with the image.

  3. I just love Colleen's kit, and I love what you have done with it! This looks like such a fun swap!

  4. I LOVE it...great details with the pearls and the paper piecing!
