Uptown Girl!

It's paper piecing time at The Outlawz: Twisted Thursday!   Our challenge is always anything goes - and our optional twist is paper piecing for this week.    We have two wonderful sponsors


Now how about that! :D   

I used this adorable Besties image by Sherri Baldy.   Love her images!  
I used Copic Sketch markers
Skin tones:  E50, E21, E00, R20 
Hair:  C3, C5, C7, C9 
Eyes:  B21, B000
Hat and blouse:  R27, R24, R22, R20 and red multiline
Socks:  V000, V00, V02
Shoes: C5, C3, C1

Copic: Marbleized
Background:  V0000, V000 and colorless blender

I used the designer paper to paper piece the skirt.     
Look at those eyes!   

I am linking this card with the following challenges

Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!  

Hugs,   Marie


  1. Isn't she a cutie? I think so. I love the paper in your background and the sparkled areas of her outfit really make for a nice "dress up" outfit. The way you have made your background (just the shape and size of it) makes me think that she just busted through a paper wall and is now walking down a model's runway. Wow you are really bringing out the imagination in me. Thanks for that. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Oh wow, this is stunning and so beautifull coloured.

  4. Paper piecing never seems to go out of style and thank goodness ... it's such a cool technique. Beautiful job Marie.

  5. That background is just fabulous and your coloring just ROCKS! So glad I saw this on MIM. xxD

  6. Stunning card! Lovely paper choice for the background and skirt. She is adorable!
    Thanks for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.

  7. Beautiful card and love the color choices. I also love the shadow around her. I have tried this but never comes out the way yours did. I love it. I saw your card on MIM. She really brings a great smile to my face.

  8. Fabulous card Marie. The colour is gorgous and so vibrant and the image is such a cutie xx
