In honour of today's big news, I thought it only appropriate that I share a card (or two) featuring the iconic Yumi and Fumi from the Introducing Yumi and Fumi Series.

Yes - you are seeing double! If you are a frequent visitor, you know I like to build my stash of cards by making multiples of the same card, with just a few slight differences. So, while colouring up the image, I decided to colour it up two different ways to match the different mixes of the patterned papers. Which one do you like best? Personally, I rather like Fumi as a ginger! A different look for her don't you think? Oh, and I actually changed Yumi's hair colour on the first image. I started her out as a yellow blonde, didn't really like it when I finished, so coloured over the original hair colour with darker browns. I think the yellow low-lights actually add a bit of depth to the hair colour in real life.

  • finished size: 5x5 inches, white card stock base, CTMH Sorbet mats
  • patterned paper: Doodlebug Designs "Flower Box"

Welcome Welcome Sheena!! Super excited to have you join us on Team Fumi! It's going to be a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to all of your projects. Wow!! Love both cards! I tend to like the non-traditional hair colors so Fumi as a ginger is perfect, especially with her bright blue eyes. Yep, it's gonna be great working with you!
