Chi Chi Memories 'Hello Girl'

I recently found this stamp brand, and just had to play today, I needed something cute and uplifting to play with after getting terrified by the earth tremor we had this morning !



I made this card by using a tent fold card blank and cutting some spotty paper 2mm smaller than the card base, then cutting a rectangle of kraft card to a couple of mm smaller than that. using one of my little sizzix circle dies, I made some die cut holes in the craft card for the paper to show through. this I attached to the paper using 3d foam pads to add dimension and cast a shadow on the paper underneath. I stamped 'hello' with one of my hero arts stamps in the top left, using my  Stampin Up's not quite navy ink pad , then wound some green and white twine around the top, looping it round three times and finishing in a knot.
I coloured up chi chi memories 'Hello Girl' using my promarkers -
blush, sunkissed pink, oatmeal and coral for the skin, soft green, turquoise and marine for the dress, shoes and hair bow, and hot pink, carmine, magenta and baby pink for the hair . i also popped her up on 3d foam pads, at the top of the 'spot holes' .

she is such a cute stamp and I can already think of lots more to do with her, and may just go bankrupt shopping the rest of the store!



hope you like my little creation! lots of love,

Rachel
