I normally choose papers for my card before I colour anything, so this pre-colouring is not my usual method. It sometimes can pose a challenge in finding the right DP. But it's also really nice to have 1/2 of the work already done when you sit down to make a card.
I've used Wryn and Wren- Too Tweet. This 'tweet' sentiment also comes with the image, so that's a bonus!
She is, of course, coloured with copics (I added some pastel shading later on). I used Echo Park's All About a Boy 6x6 paper pad- and I don't think this card is boyish at all, so don't let the theme of the collection always decide how you are going to use it!! I did some faux-stitching with a white sharpie paint pen. CS is Stampin' Up, dies and hemp are MFT and the wooden heart button is a Michaels brand. The card measures 5x5 square. The layout is the current SSSC (#189).
