Loves Rubberstamps - How Charming Challenge


Happy Tuesday to you!  Today I am back with another challenge by Loves Rubberstamps!
This week we want to see "How Charming" you are!  So show us your charm!

Our sponsors this week is The Paper Shelter!

I have had this image by Penny Black (Rugged Angel) for some time.  I have always loved her and finally had the chance to add some color to this cutie!  She is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with copics.  After cutting the image as a square, i decided if she is rugged, I must also make the card a bit distressed.  So it is torn and distressed around the edges.   The edges are inked with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs distress ink.   I also used SImple Stories Handmade Holiday paper for the background.  Added a bird house charm, ribbon, burlap, and a little heart for the corner.  

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair:  E31, E25, E29
Dress:  E40, E41, E43
Boots:  E31, E37, E57
Scarf/Gloves:  R24, R29, E07
Jacket:  YG93, YG95, YG97

For the inside, I used matching papers from the SImple Stories Handmade Holiday pack and finished it off with a button and twine.
