QFTD31 KopyKating Crystal

Over on Splitcoast, Crystal is the new Queen. I loved this card she did and had to do one of my own. I used my Pure Innocents start each day with a whee. LOVE this little image, it just makes me so happy.
I used the same dp and basic design, flipped the dp so my paper peircing would show up, lol. I did not have any old olive ribbon, so I made my own wrinkle ribbon.
I cut some seam binding and opened up my old olive stamp pad. Cut a peice of sponge and sponged over the top while color was being drawn up from the bottom. I put this uneven mess into a baggie and added a tiny amount of rubbing alcohol and wadded it all up together and left it in the baggie for hours while I worked on the card and did other things. when I took it out of the baggie, I put it on my non stick craft sheet and the alcohol evaporated quickly. So I was able to cut a strip of 1/2 inch Scor tape and try to buckle it a bit at the end. This is my first attempt at that look, so I am not totally thrilled, but not unhappy with the results. lol.
I used SU markers for the shoes and swing. Watercolored the tree bits with old olive and then stamped on the smallest stamp of my Kitties Kit - outdoor master. I also used copics that I get from my friend Vicky for her hair and face. Vicky always sells her things with a discount, so it's like shopping with a coupon for everything, I love it!
I used my paper peircing tool to go around the white edge and used old olive and rich razzleberry base. The dp is S.U.'s cottage wall.
Thanks so much for taking a look.
