Mrs Potato Head celebrates

I had so much fun making this card, there is always a little extra challenge with a themed card. One of my best friend's has a young daughter with a birthday coming up. She asked for a Potato head, so I could not resist making a card to match.

I used the card I made earlier this week as a guide (Tuesday Morning Sketches). I first found a coloring page for Mrs. P then coloured her with a mix of watercolor pencils and Pearlescent watercolour paints. I used a white jelly roller for the eyes, arms and tips of the running shoes. I wish this picture showed the glimmer of the Pearlescent watercolours better.  In all the pictures I have seen, she dresses with pinks and purples, so I matched the DP to the coloured image.

I added some wool twine and a heat embossed sentiment, I should have added a pearl to the little button but I did not think of it at the time. I finished with adding some pearls to her eyes and a couple in her ears for earrings.

Supplies: Cream and purple cardstock, Designer Paper –Echo Park, Mrs. P-colouring pages, twine and pearls.
