Retail Therapy

Hi again!  I'm back with a super quick second post today to share a card I made using some of the fabulous new digis that were just released by Make it Crafty today!  The theme for the collection is Let's Go Shopping and the backgrounds and characters are awesome!  I couldn't wait to color up a scene with them! Check out all the new stuff here!

Here is the card I made:

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from the Simple Stories Summer Bliss 6x6 pad.  I created the fun shopping scene by merging Shopping Sidewalk with Maddy Shopping and Penny Shopping.  I printed the merged image on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the scene:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Light Brown Hair: E50, E53, E57
Red Hair: E50, YR31, YR24, E35

Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97
