CC Tuesday - The Stamp Spot DT Post

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a card I made for The Stamp Spot using the funky CC Tuesday stamp from The Greeting Farm. I love how funky punky she is! hehe

I started off with this beautiful Basic Grey DP and really wanted to base the card around this. I love the Basic Grey papers, they are all so vibrant and versatile! I teamed this with some Butter and Black cardstock as a border. The black dp is from My Mind's Eye but the print isn't showing up very well in my photograph :(




I added some black funky stitching around the border, some kaisercraft pearls, and some ribbon from my stash. The black hearts are a die cut from My Favourite Things. I stitched down the centre of the hearts with yellow thread to add a pop of colour.



To match the paper, I decided to use pink and yellow tones to colour CC. She was a lot of fun to colour and I even used my brand new Spectrum Noir pens! These are amazing...a must have if you are just starting out at colouring and the copic price tag is a little daunting. Here are the colours that I used below:

Skin: (copic) E50, E53, E00, E11
Hair: (Spectrum Noir): PP3, PP5, BP2
Dress: (copic) Y11, Y15 (Spectrum Noir) PP3, BP2
Boots: (Spectrum Noir) IG1, IG4, 1G10
