Mary Margaret, Goldilocks, and Catey!

These wonderful digi images were dontated by Michelle Perkett Studios for OWH Stars and Stamps midweek throwdown. Of course I had to try both images for this card challenge.I know it is too late for back to school for alot of people but my kids dont start for another week. I chose fall colors for Mary Margaret's dress. I tried to make the plaid look like real wool plaid fabric where the colors overlap and blend to create something different. I also glossed up the apple she is holding with Crystal Effects.
Supplies: SU! colored cs, ink, crystal effects & scallop oval punch, PTI sentiment and woodgrain stamp, and Copic markers.

I love Goldilock's hair. It reminds me of my daughter Ashley's hair. I wish my hair was like that! I had wanted to use a PTI stamp set that had a wooden chair in the background and some fun sentiments but decided to my typecast this sweet image. Also it will be easier for troops to sent home with a "love" message instead.

Supplies: SU! colored cs & ink, PTI sentiment and woodgrain stamp, versachalk ink, Copic markers.

My 4 year old, Catey, LOVES to color! When I print digi images, if Im not careful, she will sneak them away and color ALL of them. Her two older sisters complain because she didnt leave them anything to color. Sometimes she requests for me to print her "more to color". I bought some new crayola markers for back to school but she insists on using my Copics. This last Goldilocks image was colored by her. I had already finished mine and she told me "I want to color her just like yours". I left her to color and when I came back she showed me her picture. I was amazed at how well she matched the colors all on her own out of over 150 markers. I'll have to see who she wants to send this to.


  1. Stacie these are wonderful! Isn't it interesting how the kids enjoy those Copic markers as much as we do?! I know mine do!
