Burnished Lucy



This card's background is a technique from the most recent Technique Junkie newsletter called Burnished Backgrounds.  I didn't start out with white cardstock, however, so I burnished with white craft ink (which turned kind of pink).  Lucy is from Stampsmith.  She is colored with copic markers.  The background stamp is from Stampin Up and the stamp hole is too far away to run down and get the maker on the "I love you" stamp.   After I had Lucy colored in, there was just something missing and I couldn't pin it down until I remembered that her eyes needed a white dot.  Voila!  That was it......dark holes of eyes made into real eyes with the dot of a Signo pen.   Enjoy!

She was also made for a challenge over at Gingersnap Creations!  They have a challenge to make a card with Stars.....my star is Lucy!  Here is the link to their challenge.....HERE.
