Little Geek


It's a new month (where did January go?) and time for a brand new digi release from Whimsy Stamps.  This is Little Geek designed by artist Marika Collins.  I used Kaiser Craft Vintage Timeless paper; the clock and paper clips are Tim Holtz (not the little angled one though - that was in my stash and I don't know where it came from; and the clips are a door prize I won at a Stampin' Up workshop.
The sentiment is computer generated and I added some Glossy Accents for her glasses and Stickles to the heart on her jeans.
The following Copic colours were used:
Pants:  B97, B93, B91
Shirt:  R17, R14, R11
Hair:  Y23, Y21, E37, E35, E33
Skin:  E11, E00, E000, R20
The books and floor colours are various E's... sorry, I didn't keep track of these.
I hope it is warm where you are and for those of us who are chilled by winter... well, all I can say is I hope April gets here soon!  Have a good one!
Challenges:
Bearly Mine - Hearts Galore (It's small but the heart is on her jeans)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
The Perfect Sentiments - Anything Goes with a die cut (the little swirl in the upper left corner of the image)
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
