Spoil Yourself

Here is another Pink Cat Studio/Copic card. This is for a customer who has a shoppy/girly friend. I thought this image was perfect but after I had colored it with the ONLY two purple Copics I own, I realized I had no purples that matched very well. So I high-tailed it to my LSS, where I searched the aisles high and low for some "shoppy" paper. NO luck. I got the glitter paper and went up to the counter to pay. I was showing the worker the image and telling her what I'd wanted and she said "Oh, you mean like that?" Lo and behold, sitting right there by the cash register, was a sheet of the perfect paper that someone else had put up there! Luckily there was another sheet for me. I think this looks adorable! I used white Liquid Applique sprinkled with lavender glitter for her feather boa and a little rhinestone for her ring and Liquid Pearls for her necklace and earrings. The green in the paper matched Kiwi Kiss perfectly, so I made that the card base. My customer said, "It's like you know her" so I guess it was a hit. Since I bought a 12 x 12 sheet of this stuff I will be making more, but coloring the bird green instead of yellow.

What happy accidents have you had lately?
