Inspired By All The Little Things #52

*Note: this is my third post for today.
Please scroll down to see my other posts
and some exciting news!

Today, I have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #52:

When I saw this image, I knew immediately that I would 
use my MFT stamp set to create my card:


I started by stamping the girl from my MFT set onto my watercolour
paper background and heat embossing it in clear.
Then, I did some masking and stamped the buildings from PTI's City Scene
stamp set, in Altenew Evening Grey and Morning Frost.
However, I forgot to put my mask back after it got stuck to my stamp,
using my MISTI and accidentally stamped the building onto my girl's face.
(Please, someone tell me that I'm not the only one to mess up masking like that!)


Not wanting to start over, I decided to restamp the girl and diecut her out.
I coloured her in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers and a water brush.
I adhered her to my card using dimensional adhesive.
I stamped my sentiment using my new stamp set from Right At Home --
I just love this sentiment and thought it suited this confident girl perfectly!

Leigh, think the gal looks more confident "popped" up anyway. Guess this explains why I seldom do masking even though I love when others do it. Sweet card with perfect sentiment!

This is so sweet. I like how the girl is the only pop of color on the mostly gray card.

Absolutely LOVE this! Wonderful verse and wonderful design with the cityscape in the background! I love the neutral color palette with just that small pop of pink. And I think she looks fabulous die cut and popped up on the front!

I am constantly ruining my cards with wonky masking. You're not the only one, and you made an excellent save on this one! It's amazing!

What a great save! I do things like that all the time! I made a card a really liked and couldn't photograph it for a while. By the time I got around to it, I found it on the floor with a big hole in it...complete with dirt marks...my dog had stepped on it! Your card is so sweet, by the way.
