Stamp Something - Photo inspiration

This is my second post today, please scroll down for Stampin' For The Weekend challenge DT card.

We are showing you a gorgeous photo this time at Stamp Something and asking to seek the inspiration from it for your project. Our generous sponsor is Paper Jewels shop this week.

I picked up the bright colours and a happy feel of the photo.

I used one of my cute Bildmalarna Mimosas, I just adore her careless happy stroll and hearts in the basket.

She was coloured with Copics and accented with Sakura Glaze pen (eyes). I left the card mostly plain because the busy layout and papers were doing the job already. I felt if I added much more it would just look gaudy and overdone.

Copic Markers:
Skin: E13/53/51/50, R01/02
Shoes, basket: E79/77/74/71/70
Dress: RV99/95/93/91
Ribbons, hearts: RV99/95/93/91, Y23
Apron, Hat: Y38/17/15/13/11/28
hair:E18/15/13, Y32
Ground, green background: W7/5/3/1/00, E33/35/51, YG09/25/13/03/11/21/0000

IMAGE:  Bildmalarna
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers Inkssentials white gel pen
Paper: SEI, bazzill card stock, Neenah card for image
Accessories: erm - paperclippy-thingies?,    flat back crystals
