I just love this adorable stamp set! I actually cut apart the à la modes character from the firecracker so I could stamp her solo on a panel and use the firecracker as an accent. I ended up cutting her out anyway, but I like having more options and versatility so I cut my clear stamps apart all the time. I colored her skin with Copic markers and the rest of the image with Prismacolor pencils.
To achieve the darker shadows on her dress, I added in some black colored pencil and blended it in. I added some detail to her shoes to make the soles look like cork. She was "fussy cut" out and adhered to a stitched panel.
I used Tiara Stickles on the exploding fuse on the firecracker. It's super shiny!
She is colored with Copic markers. Her dress was paper-pieced with a denim patterned paper. The sentiment was stamped on the File Tab Die-namics.
Confession: my stitching was messy along the top of this blue panel and I could NOT let it go... so I covered it up with a cute multicolored banner. I cut the Banner Strip Die-namics in all three sizes and then layered them over one another, cutting off the banners I wanted to skip. I added a couple silver brads to anchor it on the card.
Here are the Die-namics I used on my cards today:
