I inked up the image of Lulu playing dress-up for my card today. I think this image will be very nostalgic for many KKS fans. I'm sure we all snuck into our mother's or grandmother's closets to find the perfect outfit and accessories for playing "grown-ups"...and of course no ensemble would be complete without a pair of snazzy high heels. ;) I used some pretty paper from Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" and cut out a few layers out with some Spellbinders. The flourish is an MFT die and the little flowers were made with a paper punch.
Lulu was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. Her dress and hat were paper pieced with the Cosmo Cricket papers. Shading was added with Copics. Her boa was covered in Polar White Flower Soft and then sprinkled with Glamour Dust. I had originally coloured the pearl necklace with my Copics, but then thought it would be fun to give her some "real" pearls with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. However, I should have made the pearls a little larger than the ones drawn on the image as my pearls all ended up running into each other and lost their definition. I think making each pearl a little larger would have helped to maintain the "pearl" shape better. Oh well...lesson learned. :)
