Shake it Up

Hi!  Here's another card using one of my NBUS Girlfriends stamps from Art Impressions.

I love coloring these girls because they're pretty easy to color, with no real thought to shading.  As these chicks are dancing, I've put them in very sparkly clothes using copious quantities of Wink of Stella :)

After coloring them, I die-cut them with a circle die, cutting the front lady's foot out using the Out of the Box technique.  I then put the layers together, using Papertrey Ink cardstock that most closely matched the Copic colors.

I used the sketch at Retro Sketches as well as the Sparkle theme at Simon Says Stamp.
