Marci wtih Rose is oh soo sweet!

I just love all these adorable new Marci stamps! And this week's release is no exception! Meet Marci with Rose. She has such an old-world quality to her, I couldn't resist doing her as a black and white image (and the fact that I saw some work Marci creator Irina had done with this technique recently  - WOW!) This card just makes me think of my mom, who recently attended her 51st high school reunion.
I used this fun black and white houndstooth Norm's News paper from October Afternoon, along with some Pink Pirrouette from SU! I colored Marci with just a handful of copics, W1, 3, 5 and 7 and then R000, R00 and R11. I didn't think I could pull off the black and white look, and was pleasantly surprised with the results!
Marci with Rose is currently available in the digi-shop of the La-La Land Crafts Boutique--for those who can't wait for her September 15th debut in rubber--alongside cheerleader Marci. And don't forget to upload your La-La Land Crafts creations to the customer page and you could WIN by being our customer of the month!


  1. I love her in the grays...I wonder if I could get away with this style! Great with the pink!

  2. Oh wow Jana, she is FABULOUS in black and white!! I remember doing this technique not long ago with Rosie and loved it. Gonna have to try it with Marci too =) LOVE your bg--the houndstooth. Goes perfectly with the style you're going for. *Ü*

  3. Fabulous job Jana with the black and white! Marci is gorgeous and luv how you added a little pink in there too!

  4. From another luvin' mama, this is adorable and beautiful - and you might remember that gray is my least favorite color. Your shading is perfect! XO

  5. That's what I said when I first saw your card, Oh SO SWEET!!!! LOVE it!!!!
