Book lover

Svenja has set our challenge over at Daring Cardmakers today - she’d like to see us celebrating books and reading. 

I fully intended not to use the little reader again having used the stamp for a recent dare but in the end just couldn’t resist! I did change things up a bit by adding some hand drawn pigtails. I found a piece of book text with finger-painted circles in a box of bits and used that as my background. I added a bit of Picked Raspberry ink over the open text areas and a strip of washi tape for grounding. 

I decided the reader needed to stand out a bit more against the busy background so I added some vellum circles just to tone it down slightly behind her.

It is easy to see why you wanted to use her again-she is adorable!
The BG kind of like a dreamscape-nice for a reading card.

The young lady is PERFECT for the book challenge! I'm glad you didn't refrain from using her. Your card made me smile - at my younger self who didn't have Netflix to keep herself from reading...
