I am NOT a People Person, but...

You know when you are little and don't appreciate the deliciousness of a good zucchini? Well that's how I am with people imaged stamps. I wasn't joining that movement, until I met Mimi.

This little Penny Black girl named Mimi has stolen my heart. And sadly, I don't color so it's hard to make her shine without also adding copic coloring skills to my design repertoire. Slowly easing into this medium, so be nice :)


Supplies:
Stamps: Penny Black Mimi's Farm, April Showers, chat bubbles die
Copics

I am entering this in Casual Fridays Challenge: BUTTONS! see the little button brad on her hat :)
and Penny Black Beat the Heat Challenge!

  3. Adorable card Wida! I, too, avoid people stamps. I'll do a bit of coloring on an animal stamp occasionally. But people? Nope.

  4. Hi Wilda, I struggle with people- hair and skin drive me made. Blue practice does (usually) make perfect. Lovely card, Rebecca x

  5. I was the same - didn't really get into people stamps - but then I fell in love with the little girl in MFTs Pure Innocence stamps - this one in particular http://www.mftstamps.com/clear-stamps/Pure-Innocence?product_id=1021 I sometimes colour her using Copics, but I often paper piece her dress (like I think you've paper pieced Mimi's hat- so cute!) BTW, I just adore the way you've coloured the clouds!!

  6. I'm so with you- & yet I'm coming around too. I'm beginning the whole 'learn how to colour' thing & I'm even starting to like cute (just a little). Love what you've done- & she is lovely!

  9. Your copic skills are pretty darn good if you ask me...such a sweet card! I totally paper piece since I'm not that great at coloring...I also find water colors a little easier to work with as well.

  10. This is so sweet!! Love it!! Keep coloring!! You're doing great!
    I wasn't into "people stamps" either but then I got inspired by Annette Allen's
    Some Odd Girls cards and projects ... and now I'm a SOG-addict! :)
    Still have LOTS to learn, I watch lots of coloring videos and
    I practise a lot ... It's so fun and relaxing!
    Enjoy your Sunday, Wida!! :)

  14. I'm the same way, but there are some Ketto girl stamps that are so adorable, that I'm seriously thinking of getting into 'people' stamps!

    I love your card, it is so cute! And your colouring is great!

  18. Animals are the closest thing I've come to people. Perhaps one of these days. Way to branch out and try new things! She's adorable in a very "Wida" way, love it : )

    So glad to see you at CAS-ual Fridays!!
