Uptown Girl Opal

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!!!

Cath this is stunning. I think she's one of my favourite uptown girl. Maybe it's the red wine?!
