Tiny Baker Tina

Hello everyone and happy Friday to you!   It's Marie here and  I am excited to share this darling image called Tiny Baker Tina from Some Odd Girl.   Isn's she just the cutest?   I remember how I loved to bake as a child.   My mother was a great baker and I never quite achieved the same effect!   Anyway, this little image captures those childhood memories for me.  

The fabulous thing about this wonderful clear stamp, besides being just so stinkin cute, is that it comes with two sentiments.   The actual measurements for Tina are 2.25 in x 3.5 in.   That is a perfect size for cards and projects!  


Card Base 4.24 in x 5.5 in.
Base Mat 4 in x 5.25 in. 
Designer Top Layer 3.75 in. x 5 in.   

One of the fabulous things about Copic markers is the way they blend.    I used "on-paper" blending on this card.   I used a minimum of three colors in order to provide contrast. With on-paper blending, there wil be a light, medium and dark color.   I occasionally add C3 or W3 to my darkest shade sparingly in order to provide more shadow.   Your darkest color is then placed over the top again and the other colors are blended out.   Some people feel on-paper blending works best by starting with your darkest color.   Other's have the opposite view.   I vary it depending on my project.  Experiment and use the technique that gives you the best result.   A smooth blend is the most important.  

Skin tone:  E000, E11, E13 (sparingly).  A touch of R20 to cheeks and R20, R22 for lips.  
Hair:  E11, E15, E17, E18, D19 and a touch of Y02.   
Baker's Chef Hat/Apron/Cupcake frosting:  RV0000, RV00, RV21, RV91, RV95
Dress/ Socks/ Eyes/Bloomers: B0000, B21, B34.  I added C3 to bloomers for shadow effect.
Shoes: C7, C5, C3, C1, touch of Opaque White Copic Ink.

I try to do something that will draw the eye to the important part of the image.  Attention needed to be directed to the cupcake so I used Mixed Berry Fairy Dust Glitter (Donna Salazar) 
 This is a fine glitter and really adds sparkle to the finished project.  

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my project.   Stop by tomorrow and   see who has been selected to be in the Spotlight!
