Super Girl Starla Flying By!

Hello friends!  Happy Tuesday and I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!  I actually can’t believe that September is already flying through this quickly!

Speaking of “flying”, I have this really cute card to share with you using another Whimsy Stamps image:

Vicki-WSStarla-Sept17

This little digital cutie is called Starla from Whimsy Stamps.  She has her arms out and so I thought it would be cute to have her appear as if she’s smiling while flying up through the clouds at us!  I also thought this would be a really nice encouragment card for a child and I’ll be sending it out to hopefully share some smiles.

I stenciled some clouds in behind her, cut the image out with a stitched square die and layered a piece of purple cardstock behind her.  I ran a piece of green colored cardstock through a star embossing folder, wrapped a silver ribbon around it and then attached it to a purple 5″ square top folding card base.

I die cut some stitched cloud borders for the bottom of the card design, but sponged them with some Broken China Distress Ink before attaching them with foam tape.  I also die cut some stars to add for accents on the design with both silver glitter stock and a piece of purple to paper piece in the center of one of the silver outline stars.  I also added a rhinestone star to the center of the bow.

Here’s a closer look at Starla with the coloring I’ve done on her.  I’ve colored her up with Copic markers and added some details with gel pens.  I’ve also covered her headband with a glitter brush pen and also added some extra glitter over the stars at the top of her head band.  You can also see where I’ve added some “strokes” to show that she’s zooming through the clouds.  I also covered that area with a bit of shimmer with the glitter brush pen as well.    The “little girl” in me had to color some purple! 🙂

The sentiment at the bottom was stamped with a sentiment from my stash with some black ink.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and it’s brought you a smile or inspired you in some way!  Thanks so much for stopping in!  See you soon!

  2. She is a doll. Wonderful extras on the outfit – all the glittery goodness on her belt, undies, and boots. I like when you point out the extras I might have missed like the actions strokes. She’s going to make someone really happy and yes, encouraged.
