Curvy Girl Loves Jam

Or in this case a jar of awesome Mary Kay product!

Yes! this is another barter card I created for my friend Cheri, the Mary Kay gal! I have had so much fun coloring up lots of mostly Stamping Bella ladies for this project. If you missed my previous post, I am making cards for my Mary Kay Consultant friend to use and she has traded me product for them. Win, Win!

I started this batch of ladies by doing all the skin. I have been using a darker skin selection lately and I really like the warmth of it.

Then I worked from the top down, tackling hair first then the flowers and strawberries.

Do you ground your images? Sometimes I do, and sometimes I do not. But it really makes a difference. Like Jen Dove says…..Hey your image is just floating there, give it some ground!

After I got her all colored and her dress all assembled I added some Nuvo Glitter Drop in Summer Sunrise to the center of the flower.

I paper pieced the dress because I wanted her to have a fun summery flowered dress. Then I paper pieced onto of my paper piecing! I colored and cut out the berry and leaf in the pocket, placing it on top of the dress. Talk about some cool dimension.
