Smiles Across The Miles with Craftin Desert Divas

Hi Crafty Friends

One of the best things in this amazing crafty world, is to create beautiful and personal cards! I love to create and send out handmade cards, and for family and friends I always give them a personal touch, like the persons name or a thing that relates to the person receiving it. 

Today I want to show you this cute card I made for Craftin Desert Divas Creative Challenge - a challenge full of amazing card ideas for you

Smiles Across the Miles: Tips for Handmade Encouragement that Shows You Care 

For this card I used the super cute little girl from 'Fruity Friends' stamp set <3
I guess she's a little pear, but I just had to try to color her up as a little happy peach, and I love the result. The sweet sentiment is from 'Ice Cream Treat'.

I used the 'Fancy Frame Dies' to create my background, and colored up the background with 'Cracked Pistachio' Distress Oxide.

Let's get started with the Copic coloring <3
I have a lot of favorite combos, one of them is for skin coloring - I always use E21-E11 and I always start using the lightest color. For the cheeks I used R11.

I love to color the hair blond, and I always do highlights by leaving a white space - it makes it look so shiny. The combo I used for the hair: E50-E51-E53.

For the cute peach I used YR000-YR01-YR02, and again I always start using the lightest color. I used R22 to make the small highlights. The top is colored with YG11-G12 and E23.

To color the little butterfly I used R32-R22 and G40.

I took a close up to show you the highlights I made with a white gel pen. Oh my she really is cute don't you think!

That's all from me today, I hope my card gave you some ideas for your own cardmaking.
