Caught a Little Bug

Ok, something awful and wicked is making the rounds in our neck of the woods. Or multiple somethings. My youngest has missed 6 1/2 days of school just since January 6. And this last one was a doozy that had her out for 4 days. That was 2 weeks ago when it started. Flash forward... that doozy of a cold was given to my hubby and me. YUCK and ICK.

So, when I got in the latest Paper Pretties Stamps that I bought I had this little darling in there, and in between sneezing and downing cold meds, managed to color her up. The challenge over at Paper Pretties this week is to make a card for a child. I thought this was the perfect image for this challenge.

I colored her up with my Copics, and wanted to make her hair a different color. I love the BV0x family and this shade of purple. The dress is BG0x family and her skin is the E0x family. The wings are RV0x and the little bug is V0x family.  On all of these I used mainly the lighter colors in the family. I think only on the medicine box did I go darker with R05 and R08.

The leaf is YG21, 23, 25 and a little bit of G28 in the very center. I liked the color, and like how it almost matches perfectly the green paper I found. That was really strange.The DP paper is from KaiserKraft Utopia collection.
Once I had colored her completely I added Spica to her wings and her hair to give it a glimmer. She was cut out and then popped up on the green oval . The Background beaded oval was cut out and while still in the Nestie I used the BV01 and airbrushed it. I did the same with the oval that the sentiment is on... then I stamped the sentiment with Versafine and clear embossed. 
As I said before, I am entering this into Paper Pretties challenge this week, and I am also going to enter it into the Crazy 4 Challenges Challenge which was to use die cuts on your image. 

Thanks for stopping by. Going to go and down some more cold meds and see if I can color something up before they take effect. :-)

  1. She is such an adorable image - first time I've seen her! The BG colors you chose are perfect to highlight the image. Hope your family gets better soon!
