Orange You A Great Friend!

So a quick post today, my two little girls both have a touch of gastro, and I'm worried I've caught the bug!

This card is for Papertake weekly challenges, and this week's theme is a sketch. If you follow the link you will see the sketch.

I have to admit, this stamp is a bit quirky for me, however I actually got it at a heavily discounted price, and figured that she was such a cutie pie, even if I used her once, I would get my money's worth. Now having coloured her, I'm in love with her! So watch out family and friends, there may be an Olivia Orange card heading your way ;)

When I sat down to colour her, I was stuck for ideas on what colour her dress and hair should be, as not every girl can work orange. Lucky for me, a google image search was the answer! So if you pop over here, you can see the original card by the very talented Michelle Doyer. As you can see, we coloured the dress in similarly, but I chose to make Olivia a brunette with grey sparkly shoes.

Here is a close-up

  1. Oh - I would love a pair of those sparkly shoes! I think you have done a fantastic job co-ordinating the colouring of the image with your choice of papers.

    Thanks for sharing!
