And now for my project of Annie!

I started this project with the SVG Cutting Files Side Cut Card-Lacy. I cut it out using my Cameo and added a background mat.
I cut the decorative mat using the Jaded Blossom Fancy Topper Die and stamped hearts around the edge. I colored the hearts with Copic markers and used a black pen to do the stitching lines.
I stamped and colored Annie with Copic markers and added her on pop dots.
To finish, I stamped the sentiment and added a ribbon with bow.

Copic Colors Used
Flesh- E51, E21, R20
Hair- E51, Y21, YR23
Clothes- BG01, B000, 0, W7, W5

I also made a tutorial of how I did her hair! I wanted to show you that it's not as hard as you might think to color hair. As with anything, practice makes perfect. 

1. Using E51, color in the center pieces of her hair.
2. Using a "flicking" motion from the part lines out about half way, add in the Y21.
3. Using the same flicking motion, add YR23 over what you just did only about 1/4 of the way.
4. Using the Y21, blend over all her hair with flicking motions til it looks smooth. 

Flicking is when you lay your marker down at the part line and then lift up at the same time as going out.

Make sure to head over to the Stamp AnnieThing Blog to see the other fab creations from the DT.

I hope you all liked my card and I will see you back tomorrow for our final sneak peek and release!
Have a great day!
