Easy Rider

Oh I just love Penny Black's MiMi stamps. This one is called "easy rider." I have had her for a while now and then moved her over to my desk to look at. I went to my local Scrappy store and talked with the lady who orders. She finally did order a few of them and I cannot believe how fast they flew off the shelves! Wow. I was also trying to talk her into getting the pure innocent line from My Favorite Things. Can you imagine, MiMi's and Pure Innocents under one roof? OMG!!! That could be very very dangerous, lol.
I was crusing through foxy67's gallery and came across the cutest whimsical card, so this is also in honor of her reining QFTD42. Hope it was great Pat.
My nickname as a child was MiMi, but that is not why I love these gals. I just love her little face and wild hair. I colored her skin tones and tights with copics (E00, E21, E93, YG03, YG06) and her bike and hair flower with copics (RV13, YR02). I started off by sponging the background (weird huh) with Memento new sprout, cantaloupe and tangelo. I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black. I paper pierced with Basic Grey's new hello luscious 6X6 pad. And then I got out the Kitties Kit "cause a scene" stamp set that I just love. I used Tim Holtz shabby shutters for the grass and greenery, and then spun sugar for more of the greenery. Still, it did not have that "done" look to it. So I got out my tree die from My Favorite things and added a tree and the leaves paper are from the same paper pack. I added a background punch, Martha Stewart fence punch. And some sheer ribbon to finish it off using my Bow Easy. The main apricot colored paper is from Papertrey Ink.

Hope you like her.
