How FROU FROU are you?

i'm here to share a pretty little something i created using the new Frou Frou stamps from Crafter's Companion!  this one's called Tipsy, and while she looks ridiculously cute sitting in that margarita glass, she still looks classy and elegant with the get-up and that little parasol, doesn't she?  :)  the girl's just chillin' while waiting for someone to put another drink in her lonely little hand!   :)


i seriously just loved her in a classic color palette, and rather than embellishing with a ton of things, i stuck to total simplicity, with some fun and slightly unusual (for me) embellies...  the pearls to mimic her necklace, and the flower a big 3d punch i got a few months back but never used.  (i know, surprise, surprise!)  the paper is from Glitz Design and the sentiment is from the Tipsy set - cute, right?!

here she is, colored up with my Prismacolor Pencils
(is it just me, or does the photo seem, like, WAY fuzzy?)...

here's my Prisma list, for those of you who still play with pencils and kick it ol' skool like me!  :)

Skin - 1093, 1019  Cheeks - 929  Lips - 925
Hair - 1052, 1056, 1058
Dress - 1088, 1065, 1060
Shoes - 925
Umbrella - 924, 928, 1056, 1068, 942, 948, 916, 1005, 1091
Glass - 1023, 1025, 1065  

so i didn't really do much to create the card, but i was really happy with the stitching detail - it's small but impactful!  i cut the 6x6 sheet down the center unevenly with scissors, overlapped the two halves, and backstitched the whole height of the card. check out the whole Frou Frou line at Crafter's Companion, and i just DARE you to try to narrow it down to pick your faves.  they're FUN to color and give a bit of extra forgiveness because the lines aren't so thin and clean.  the sketchy, artistic look really works for a vintage/shabby style (although it's not MY style, per se), and if you click each stamp on the Frou Frou page, you'll see gallery samples that accompany the stamps, and the vintage style some of the designers are rocking!  :)

that's it for tonight - i have a SUPER busy weekend ahead, and only a couple of workdays before i leave for SEATTLE!  can't possibly explain how excited i am about this trip, and i'm DEFINITELY going to bring some coloring to occupy me when i have some down time!  HAPPY FRIDAY, chickens, and i hope you have a wonderful weekend!  xo
