JDE Inks & Such Card / Farmer Girl

Hello Everyone,

This is my card for Jackson's Digital Expressions Inks & Such DT Project.

This is our teams's Challenge #8 please click on that link to participate.

The image I used is from Jackson's Digital Expressions called 'Lil Farmer.'
If you're on the blog to get to Robert's online digi shop just click on his photo on the left side of the page or you can just go to:

For Inks & Such projects you can use any color medium to hand color your stamped or digi image.
Here's my take on the inks & such card.

I colored the image with Copic markers, Copic Atyou Spica pens and for the hair 
I colored with Marvy Uchida markers since I don't have any black or gray copic markers.
I used a white gelly roll for the dots in her eye.

Tip or Technique: For the clouds I just used a napkin as a fake dauber 
using Color Box cat's eye ink pad; the white one. 

Copic Atyou Spica 'Gold' for a slight sparkle over brown copic marker on her eyes irises. 
I also used Copic Atyou Spica 'Red' for her hair balls or knockers and 'Pink' for a slight shimmer on her lips. I lined the eyes with a black Copic multiliner. 

I used my Cricut for the small sunflowers which are in the Country Life
cartridge but the flowers are called Wildflowers. 
The large Sunflower and leaf are from the Spellbinder's Sunflower Two set
and I also used the Deckled Mega Rectangles Large set (the smallest die) 
to cut the sentiment. 
The sentiment is from Kenny Chesney since I was looking for country sayings.

Well ladies and gentlemen, I hope you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for stopping by.

See you soon.
