{Spotlight Project} Vicki Goes Back to the Basics with CityGirl

***For DAY 3 of the ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop, click here.***



Hi, all! Vicki here. I went back to the basics today. Lately, I have been seeing black and white backgrounds, with a pop of color out here in blogland. I have to say, it really appeals to me.


Out comes The Bee's Knees CityGirl. She is so classy, and can't she carry off all that luscious color? :)



I laid out the houses and stamped with black ink. Rather than stamping the houses individually, I used my MISTI. [If you don't know about this tool, I highly recommend you Google it.]



Next I stamped CityGirl and colored her. I went as bright as I could - I adore bright! This time I even colored in some stylin' boots. [I have more fun with this image.]



That's it! Stamp on a sentiment, add dimensions, and adhere CityGirl on to the card, and it's done!The pop of color makes me so happy.



See you next time!
