In Honor of Cinco de Mayo

That's Frida Kahlo from VeraLane Studio's Frida Kahlo digital stamp set. She was resized in PhotoElements, printed out onto Neenah cardstock using my laser printer, and colored with Copic markers. Clear Gelly Glaze pen was used on her jewelry. Her cheeks received a touch of blush courtesy of chalk pencils.

An additional  Frida was printed out onto regular paper using an ink jet printer and fussy cut to become a mask. Y0000 Copic marker was airbrushed around her, then Y000 Copic marker was airbrushed through the Sunburst stencil by The Crafter's Workshop.

The patterned paper is from the Couture Collection 8x8 pad by Graphic 45. The striped paper is from an older Graphic 45 collection. Black patterned paper was die-cut using a die from Top Dog Dies. Ribbon was adhered, a bow was tied, and a sugar skull charm was used to finish the card.

Thanks for visiting today!
