Let's Go Shopping

Can't you see Mom saying "Come on Honey. Let's go in and buy Mommy a new dress"!

This is another entry for Gina K's In the Spotlight Design Team Auditions. It is also a CASE of some of my previous cards. Little store scenes are so fantastic - You can "sell" whatever your card recipient is interested in.

Thanks to LuvLee for the Kindred Spirits Rebecca images. This is on my "must buy" list. I love to do scenes and could put these girls anywhere!

The awning is made using the word window punch. After punching the black and white cardstock, I tape it to a strip of scrap paper, turn it upside down, and score a line using my Score-Pal near the bottom edge. I fold this edge down for dimension and add grey ink around the folded edge. I also add some shadows with my Copics.

The brick wall was made using Copic markers. Instructions are here. The sidewalk is also made using Copics.

Stamps: Gina K. Retro Boutique, Gina K. Kindred Spirits Rebecca
Paper: Bazzill, Soft Sky, SU DP
Ink: Real Red, Going Grey
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Copics, Prismacolor Pencils & Baby Oil, Score-Pal

This is such a lovely card and a great idea. You really could sell anything in the window. I love the paper piecing on the dress.
