A message for you & a winner:

I think my message to you today is clear….

I colored Olivia and the branch my usual way with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and cut them out. Yep, I cut all those leaves on that branch! I left a little piece of white paper to keep the leaves attached to the branch and colored the white in with my blender pen and Bashful Blue ink.

The sky is Bashful Blue paper with Whisper White clouds made like this. Baja Breeze is sponged around all the edges and more heavily in the top corners. The grass was stamped with the grass stamp and cut out. Then I put a few random springs of grass here and there. Finally, I sponged all the edges of the grass area, going more heavily on the lower corners and under Olivia. I used a blender pen and Old Olive ink to add some color to the grass sprigs. The vote sign and Olivia's smile were hand drawn. All that was left was assembly (oops, wished I would have put that branch up a little higher!).

Stamps: CC Designs Olivia’s Birdies, Sugarplums Scenery
Paper: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Bazzill Leapfrog
Ink: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Old Olive, Bashful Blue

Michelle, this is FABulous! I love all the great tiny details! Adorable! (I'm wondering when will there be the shortest line at the polls?!)
