LLLC – Just for You stamped dress

I’ve made a card where I tried something new. I decided to stamp the dress of the adorable little girl because the background stamp seemed so perfect for a dress! The stamp set I’ve used is Just for You from the new La-La Land Crafts release. I absolutely love this new background stamp!

To get this effect on the dress, I first stamped the background stamp in the colour I wanted the dress, and then I stamped the girl over the top of it. Then I fussy cut out the dress before I used my Copics to draw in some shadowed areas on the dress. Afterwards I glued it onto the girl stamp I’d started colouring up and voila!

The background stamp is stamped with a deep red Distress Ink, whereas the dress is stamped with a yellow shade of Distress Oxide Ink.

Stamps:
Just for You
Paperdoll Marci – Happy (also the sentiment)

Dies:
Happy Birthday
Two Butterflies
Pierced Scalloped Circles

Copics used: (skin) E13, E15, E27, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (dress and shoes) Y13, Y19.
