Happy World Card Making Day!

Hello and Happy World Card Making Day!

I'm starting off the day with a card that I made to celebrate World Card Making Day with Avery Lollipop!

I love this stamp for the simple reason that Avery is versatile and most everyday type sentiments are compatible with her. Is she waving hello, saying goodbye or trying to balance on her toes? At any rate, today she is saying hello friend you are in my thoughts 365 days of the year.
I gave Avery Lollipop's body a little dimension by layering the focal points of her body. I had matted my image already but only colored in her arms,legs and slippers and set it aside. I then colored in another image of Avery Lollipop and this time I colored in her hair,face and dress and carefully trimmed out her upper body. To hide the white edges of Avery's head and body, I used a C03 Copic Marker and very carefully went around the edges of Avery's body. To me, it makes your image look neater and it blends in better if you color the edges of anything you have cut out. I then applied my favorite adhesive ,Tombow Multi liquid glue to Avery's head and torso. Then I carefully adhered the head and torso to my image that I had set aside earlier. The dimension is not huge but enough to make Avery pop a bit.

Well...enough blabbering from me! *lol* Enjoy your weekend and once again, Happy Card Making Day!
