I used some My Mind's Eye printed paper for the mat. I cut the frame out with a Spellbinder's die and inked it with some Distress Ink and cut the little banner with a Die-Namics die. The little butterflies were done with a Martha Stewart punch.
I added a little glossy accents here and there. And my favorite thing other than my very impressive coloring (LOL!) is that I used some Liquid Applique for the little poodle's fur! I've had that bottle for probably 7 or 8 years and it still worked and flowed!
I pieced little Mimi together and just glued her flat to the frame but then decided to cut another frame and mount use some foam tape to lift it off the page a bit.
And that is it. I think Mimi turned out so cute and I love this cheerful card. But my blending has a long way to go! :) Off to buy more markers!!!
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Challenge: Favorite Technique (my new favorite technique for the moment is coloring and shading with Copics)
