Peppermint Polly

I was so excited when Peppermint Polly arrived in my mailbox last week. I've wanted her for so long and saw so many cute cards made with her--I couldn't wait to ink her up!


I paper pieced her dress with some papers from Basic Grey's Kissing Booth collection, and colored the flower and her scarf with Copics. To ground her, I drew in some grass with Copics and cut the image out with Reverse Wonky Rectangles.

The sentiment is a sticker from SRM Stickers and yes, I trimmed away the oval that was around the sentiment. I drew white dots on her dress and added some dots on her flower (alá my friend Kathy Racoosin) with a Signo pigment pen.

Polly is so adorable and just seeing her face makes me smile. I know I'll be using her on cards for different occasions, so you will probably be seeing her again.

I hope you're all off to a great week. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
