Hello, sassy people! Today, I have a card that uses one of the two beautiful ladies in Sassy & Crafty's Free & Brave stamp set. Did you see the news? I am officially one of the Sassy Crew! I am so stoked to be a part of this amazing team. Here's my card. 
I decided to color her with Copics, and I gave her a rich mocha skin tone. I've been really practicing with deeper skin tones lately, and I think this combination is really nice. Truth be told, I forgot to write down the combo, so I think the next thing I'm going to do is work on some color combo charts for myself.
After I colored her, I decided to ink one of the stencils from the Comic Book Stencil set with the new Speckled Egg Distress Ink. I opted to not make a mask to cover her up while I inked, but I had to be really careful. Thankfully, I have a really small blending brush that was perfect for getting around my colored Sassy Girl without messing her up. I think this stencil really adds to her powerful look.
I liked the vibe the colors of her fabric have...I was mimicking the colors of twill and denim, so I tore a piece of paper that has denim fabric printed on it. Then, I used Kraft paper for an additional mat. On my card base, I inked Stormy Sky Distress Oxide, and used the texture of the pad to my advantage, giving it a bit of a frayed look. But I needed a sentiment. I thought a simple, "you got this" would be perfect, but I didn't have that. So I pieced together the sentiment using the "you" from the Free & Brave set, the "got" from the Sassy Girls- OMG set, and I had to create the "this" using 2 words also from the OMG set. It didn't take long to do, and it was just what I wanted for this card.
I really like how rugged and powerful this card is, yet it's still feminine. I really enjoyed making this, and I can't wait to use this Sassy Girl again. Be sure to head over to Sassy & Crafty to check out all of the rad stamps and stencils they have. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
