Memories Vintage Inspired Card!!

Hey Everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend!! I'm back with another Design Team make for the Jiggery Makery Blog. I created a card featuring the newest digi from the Jiggery Makery shop, "Darlene"".
This is another beautiful image that Adele has come up with.
For my card today, I used my alcohol markers and paper piecing to bring her to life.
Here's the pic for you to check out:

The card base is Neenah Desert Storm card stock and it measures 5 1/2 x 6 1/4".
I added some stitching lines with my white gel pen along the edges.
I set it aside to work on the image.

I printed the image on white card stock and used my markers to color her in.
Here's a quick rundown of the colors I used:
-Skin- Blush, Dusky Pink, CR3
-Hair- Tan, Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon
-Bustier- C02, C03, C04
-Stockings- C01, C02, C03
-Dressmaker Dummy- CR3, Blush
-Legs- Tan, Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon

I used some pink patterned paper from a Recollections Bold Basics pad to paper piece the ottoman, dress and shoes.
I added some doodling to the ottoman legs with a fine tip black and gold markers.
I embellished the dress with a few pearls and fussy cut the image out, making sure to go around the edges with my brown marker.
I also used Glossy Accents on the shoes, collar and bow.
With the image colored in, I set it aside to work on the background panel.

I took a sheet of striped patterned paper, cut it down to 4 x 6 and added a 1" strip of Neenah Desert Storm along the bottom.
I used a ruler and a white gel pen to draw a thin frame along the panel.
I used my ATG gun to adhere the image to the background.
I layered some white and pink card stocks, cut 1/4" bigger, behind the main card panel.
I used some pop dots to adhere at a slight angle on the card base.

To finish up the card, I added some Prima flowers, pearls and an acrylic charm with the sentiment "Memories".

And ta-da!! Card complete!!

I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day and Peace!! :)
