Hello folks! I have a birthday card to share with you today using a semi-new Uptown Girl! This is Uptown Girl Opal by Stamping Bella and it's taken me a few months to color her up. I had the need for a birthday card and the recipient is quite the wine drinker so I thought Opal was a perfect choice! Actually there some other Uptown Girls who love their refreshments too! I think it's why they're one of my favorite lines!
Opal was colored with copics but I did add shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol as well. As you can see I also added Tim Holtz Distress inks along the edge of the Nestie die while the die was left in place for additional shading. I let my papers influence the color palette. Soft yellows and greens can be found in the We R Memory Keepers Antique Chic 6x6 pack.
I've added some extras using MFT dies - the flag for the sentiment along with the flower die. The border along the top and bottom is an EK Success die. Finished card is 5x7.
Enjoy your week!!!
