Hello from Little Miss Mia
This is one of my two favorite WCMD cards that I sent into Paper Crafts Magazine.
You'll see the other one on Sunday when I'm participating in a WCMD reject blog hop with my friend Jingle.
Anyway, this is Jane's Doodle's Little Miss Mia image, and the sentiment is from JD's Garden Friends set.
I just think she is so cute. I primarily used Teresa Collins' Tell Your Story 6x6 papers, although the shoes are from a MME pattern, and the skin/hair/sock are CTMH cardstock.
I wanted to add dimension through piecing, so I used the skin tone as the base for the figure and then layered the other elements on top. Where possible, I added layers: there are two layers of hair; the socks are layered over the base piece and then the shoes are layered on top of that; the pocket is another layer on the dress; etc.
I added a little shadow/shading to the underside of the hat with my blending pen, and added little pale blue shading to the socks with a Spectrum Noir pen.
The washi tape is also Teresa Collins Tell Your Story.
Hope you have a great day and thanks for coming by!
