Tia's Tips: Don't be afraid to mix it up on your cards. If die-cutting is your jam, throw in a hand drawn or stamp colored image and vice-versa. The best part about crafting/art-there is no right or wrong. There is only do what makes you feel good!

I was very excited to work with the 'Country Girl' image, being that I myself am; to quote Marie Osmond - "a little bit country". Before moving to the mountains, I grew up in Iowa, and this All Dressed Up image reminded me of....me!
I've been working very hard at picking out my design papers first (I LOVE paper!), it helps to get me excited and to start thinking out my theme. I loved the idea of my country girl sitting in a field of Sunflowers and quickly found paper to fit. I remembered that I had a Sunflower die from Simon Says Stamp and decided to make myself figure out a way to incorporate the die! When I print out my digital stamps I like to print several images of varying sizes on one sheet of paper. I chose an image size smaller than my die so it would fit into the frame of my die.
When I have an image with lots of 'little bits" to color, I like to take a sticky note or my notepad and jot down what colors I'm thinking about. Originally I thought about a purple jumper-then dismissed it in favor of a 'denim' jumper. I knew I wanted to add texture to the clothing, so made sure to color it first, so none of the colorless blender would get on any of the other colored parts. Also, I tend to do a lot of wispy clouds and decided to go with happy fluffy clouds this time.
I also chose a Hello sentiment, but felt it wasn't enough and added the extra-happy, happy.
