City Cousin, Country Cousin

I fell in love with this stamp from Great Impressions when I saw it because it reminded me of my cousin, Marcella, and myself when we young girls.  I lived in the city and Marcella lived on a farm in"the country" as we called it.  We loved to visit together and some of the best weekends of my life were spent in the country with her.  I can still taste the sweet Muscadine grapes that grew wild; we would pick and eat as many as we could!  Anyway, I colored these two cuties on Neenah paper with my Copics (E00, E30, E21, R02, E23, E25, E27, Y11, Y21, Y23, Y26, BG10, YG23, YG25, RV10, RV11,  BG000, C0), drew a line with my Copic Multiliner SP, and colored the "floor" I created.  I cute them out with a Spellbinder's square die, rounded the corners and mounted them on the scalloped die I cut out of Lasting Impressions paper.  My base is Bazzill and the first layer is "Chloe" paper from Three Bugs in a Rug as well as the two rectangle pieces I have layered under the image.  The plaid piece and the polka dot piece were both embossed with Cuttlebug folders just to add a little texture.  I created a flower using the Carnation Spellbinder's die with some of the Bazzill I used for the base.  My brad in the center of the flower was white so I colored it with YG23 to match my papers.  I had white ribbon to use but it was boring so I colored it with RV11.  I put all my elements together into a little card I aptly named City Cousin, Country Cousin!  Aren't they cute?
