We have some really cool news at our Friday coloring challenge! We are going to be sponsored for the next three months by Sweet Pea Stamps! Too exciting for me, as I love the fabulous artists that are carried by this website! Amazing collection. You can spend hours perusing the images. Ask me how I know...Anyway, our prize each month sponsored by Sweet Pea, including February, for our randomly-selected participant, will be four digital images. So be sure to get your entries in for a chance at this fabulous prize! All you need is to color an image on your project with any coloring medium/media you choose. Get out your markers, get set, go.....
This week I chose Sweet Pea Pixie by Karen Middleton, for my sister's card. Merrilyn and I both love pixie haircuts, so I thought this was perfect for her. Isn't this image beautiful? It is the spittin' image of me in another lifetime. Really. I promise. Don't believe me? Well, a girl can dream, can't she?
I decided to do a wee bit different skin tones this week. So, after printing the image on X-Press It BC, I used the following Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E15, YR02
Hair: E53, E43, E57
Trim: E02, YR02, E81, E84, E87
Not sure if I will change to this combo permanently, but it does give the image less of a "bruised" look, don't you think? I will probably try it for the next few faces I do. Back to the card: the DP I used is from the Bazzill Basics Wayfarer collection, and it was paired with Stampin' Up CS. My doily is courtesy of Teresa Arsenault--thanks, Teresa! And my Prima butterflies are courtesy of Ann Marie Governale--thanks, Ann Marie! My die cut was made with MFT Large Leafy Flourish die. Ooooh, another easy-peasy card.
Now, what to do with my weekends since football is over for another season. Actually, that isn't going to be difficult. As soon as it is warm enough I will be swimming. In the meantime, I will read books, play Words with Friends, color with my Copics, and watch movies with Gary. Tough life, but somebody has got to live it...
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
