Dance Like no one is watching

Back in May I won a stamp from a blog hop for Some Odd Girl.  And I fell in love!!  My first stamp was Dancin Mae and she is still my favorite.   I found them on Facebook and "liked" their page.  Now I am seeing some sneak peaks of the new line coming out July 11th.  Next week is the reveal!!  I just have so much fun coloring these stamps up.  And for all you digi-lovers there are lots of them!!  Kristy has only recently brought some out in clear stamps.  The challenges run for 2 weeks and this weeks challenge is Bright and Blinding.  No pastels.  I love coloring with bright colors.  I decided that I wanted to combine this challenge with the challenge over at iCopic and use my airbrush.  So fun!!!  I stamped Mae on a scrap paper and cut it out to mask the image and then airbrushed.
Guess what?  These papers are from Echo Park!  Love them.  Not my usual MME!!  I also used my RV-25 and air brushed my sentiment.  I used BG-13,11, and 10 for the background.  Did you notice my new Grand Nestie?  I chose the scalloped squares for this card.  I added a couple of nestie butterflies as well.
I have to say that the BG is so much brighter IRL, I love how the airbrushing looks. The image is popped up and the butterflies sit on top so they are popped as well.
The inside of the card is pretty simple, but I wanted to add this little metal charm and thought it looked good inside. 

And of course the copics I used for this card are as follows.
If you ever want to know the exact copic colors of the Ciao's I would be glad to let you know, just leave me a note.  As always, I enjoy your visits and your comments.  Wish I could put a pot of coffee on and sit a spell with you and chat or color!!  Thanks for stopping by.

I am going to add this to the fun with shapes and more challenge.

Woo hoo!! Everything about this is just popping!! I love the colors you used on her hair and I definitely have to get a BG!! And you're right, they don't photo that well! My clouds always look better irl too! This is perfect for our challenge at icopic, it's airbrushing or fancy background. K.. what else? Oh I bet your MME papers were so jealous {hehe}!!
Love it!!
