Cheeky Geeky Card




Here's a little card I put together.

The image featured in the center is Cheeky Geeky by The Greeting Farm.  I just think she is the cutest thing.  I colored her using my Copics.  She is up on one thin layer of foam tape for just a touch of dimension and pop.

Oh, and I'll quickly mention the technique I use to stamp her lips.  I ink up the whole stamp with my Tuxedo Black Memento, then I just wipe away the ink from her lips and quickly use a Stampin' Up marker to color them.  Then I stamp and I get everything in black, except the lips have a great pop of color.  I do this for all my Cheeky Cherry collection images.

The papers are from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite 6 by 6 pad.

I used a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Up Marker to do the faux stitching.

I used a Stampin' Up Scallop Border punch in a couple places.

The orange gems were custom done by me :)  I just took regular clear Irock gems, and after I attached them to my card I colored them with an orange Copic.  Pretty cool, huh?  I think I will have to start doing this a lot more often.  I would test one first though, I tried red and it did not look as nice so I'm glad I did a test run.

The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink and it's their Pure Poppy Saddle Stitch.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Cheeky is so cute...and I liked your tip about the lips. Great copic coloring, and it's wonderful to be able to customize your bling. I do that frequently...have learned to buy in white unless it's a super deal on buying a color. Liked all the elements on this, and it's one terrific card. Been trying all week to get over here and visit. Will try to do better in future!!! LOL TFS
