Good morning to all my crafty friends! I've got another "Peeker" card to share with you today. :) For anybody who may not be familiar with "The Peekers", they are a collection of adorable little girls designed exclusively for SCACD by artist Elisabeth Bell. Susana recently released the second installment of these lovely little tykes, "The Peekers Collection 2".

This is "Mama's Purse Peeker". I just love her...actually the entire Peeker collection has made its way into my heart. :) They are so much fun to colour up. This wee lass has hit the jackpot though...just look at that happy grin and little fist full of dollars! I remember as a little girl thinking what a treasure trove my mom's purse was...gum, hairbrushes, compacts, chapstick and of course money! lol The papers are from My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose. (check out Susana's amazing selection of paper HERE) The flower is from Prima (De Soie). The swirls were made with Spellbinders Doodle Parts. (SCACD's selection of Spellbinders can be found HERE.)

I stamped "Mama's Purse Peeker" on Make It Colourful cardstock  in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with Copics. The purse was paper pieced with some of the MME patterned paper, but shading was added with Copic markers before adhering it to the image. Oh...and I just noticed now that I splotched a bit of yellow from the purse handle right in the middle of the purse. sigh. So, please feel free to take a closer look...just not there, lol.
