Little Lady

Terrific Tuesday is here again at One Crazy Stamper, and this is my last card for this month's "Love is in the Air" challenge.  This week I finally got to color an image from a stamp company I had never bought from before.

This is "You and Me Boy" from Morehead Stamps, one of the newest companies that Lora has brought into the store.  The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Xpress It cardstock, then colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils blended out with Gamsol.  I used the Copic Colorless Blender Pen to give his shirt a plaid pattern, which is an easy but very effective technique - just color the shirt as you normally would, then use the Colorless Blender pen to remove the color to make the lines.  The Colorless Blender pen is not for blending as you can easily see, but instead is Copics answer to the eraser.
Here's a closer look at the lines that were created with the Colorless Blender -
The image was cut with Spellbinders Label 21, the sentiment is an oldie from Waltzingmouse, and jute string was wrapped around the front to finish the card.
Today is the last day to enter the challenge to win the monthly prize, so finish up that last minute project and enter!!
