Que Linda Rosalita!!

This Papertrey Ink WCMD Challenge #2: Mexico was so darned fun!!

I used Mo's Digital Pencil's Rosa digi stamp, so perfect for this challenge!

I'm still playing with varieties of skin tones, and adjusting my Copic collection as I go. I think my tanned little Rosalita looks stunning and vibrant :)
I have to tell you I LOVE COPIC MARKERS, have I not mentioned this one million times? You can tell you've blended well when you see your image almost replicated in colour on the back of the paper. I also use my Copics to colour my mish-mash of letter stickers to match what I am doing. My dear frind gives me her "ugly stickers" because I am able to alter them to match whatever I am doing :)

Here's a technique I learned in a class - tearing fibre paper. I use a cotton-tipped swab "wet" to draw a line... I personally like to use my paper cutter to get it "just right" and when I bring the bar down I have a perfectly straight guide to make my "wet line". And yes, that is a Creative Memories straight-cutter... those blades, although pricey ($7 last forever and give a clean, beautiful cut! I've had this cutter since 2000, we're talking almost 10 years!!!
The I carefully tear *away* so the fibres pull away from the project (like bad frizzy hair - haha). I was told not to trim, but I do trim the thickest fibres that are just too long.

I attached my fibre fringe to the back of this card and put another piece of cardstock over it on the back to sandwich it because it is so thin; I wanted it on all four sides to soften this very simple card.
Simply beautiful! / Que linda!
