...MFT Sunday

I adore these Pure Innocence images from My Favorite Things, and I can't seem to put them down!  This one is called "My Balloon", and I thought this would be a good opportunity to practice on an ethnic skin tone using my Copic Markers.  I like how this one turned out...it could be either a lighter African-American skin tone or a Latin American one.  I enjoyed trying something new, so you will probably be seeing a more diverse collection of images from now on.  I pulled the other colors from the patterned paper strips I picked out from the Lucy Bird paper pack by Imaginesce.  I stamped the image in Black Ink onto PTI White Cardstock, then colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers.  Some stitching, piercing, and some Hodgepodge Hardware complete the card.  What do you think of the new skin tone?

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I'll catch you all back here tomorrow with another There She Goes Challenge! Until then...
