Shine On

Greetings Oddies!!  To my American friends I wish you a VERY happy and healthy Fourth of July!!  I hope you're off spending time doing whatever it is that makes you smile!!  Today I'm here bringing you a fun and summery card using one of my favorite Odd Girl sets - Sunny Mae

I started by choosing some fun and very bright summery papers.  They are all from Recollections brand - the house brand at Michael's.  They are not the highest quality thickness-wise but they are very pretty and bright.

Once I had my papers, I set to coloring Mae.  I inked her with Momento and stamped her onto Copic X-press blending paper.  It's super smooth, absorbent and blends so beautifully!  I highly recommend.  I colored her and then paper pieced her dress.  I did color the beautiful flower on her dress with my Copics.

I used some awesome MFT dies - Dizzy Doily Duo, to tuck behind her and really maker her pop.  I added some Fishtail Flag STAX Die-namics in varying sizes and colors on the right hand side to balance out the beauty on the left. 

I added one of my favorite sentiments 'shine on' which comes with the set to the lower right hand side of the entire frame. 

I finished my panels off with some basic straight stitching and a few mini silver brads.  As you can see, I added some Distress Ink in Vintage photo sponged on the edge of my flags, doilies and her dress for added dimension. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project feature today and enjoy a wonderful day wherever you are!!

Crafty Hugs!
