The first project I have for you is using one of the new sets I ordered. One of my Copic Heroes Cheryl developed the challenge for this week, and it was to use Dots. Lots of Dots. This lovely girl with her head in the clouds or in a book, or in both, fit perfectly. She came ready made with dots. :-)
Did I mention that Cheryl is one of my copic heroes. Well... I will say it again. And I have learned a lot watching her. So... I decided to use her dots technique on this. I used B0000, 000, 00 and B60 on this... and surrounded her and her thoughts. :-) I made this into a little tag.
The second project I have to show you is the card I made a few days ago for the Kraftin Kimmie Guest Design Team call. SIGH.... There are so many talented gals going for it, but I wanted to throw my hat into the fray and take the challenge and attempt to have my own adventure. I did that with Lavinia. She is such the happy gal and looks at all new challenges not as a challenge but as an adventure. (Ok... that is my imagination, imagining that she does.) Because of that I thought that the sentiment from Cleo set worked so well.
I used this gorgeous Graphic 45 paper with balloons, and tried valiantly to match her dress to the green... but I also wanted to make it a tad brighter, as she needed to be the part of the adventure that shines. She is a mixture of YG41, 45, G40,43,46 and a little BG thrown in. Her hair is Warm Greys... several of them. And, the purples are the V2x series, to add some interest to her dress (plus I love green and purple together). I added bows and bling, and even bling to the bows, and finished her up with a little antique flower and a couple of keys for her adventure.
OK... thanks for showing up today. I am tired (see my adventure above) and need to go to sleep. See you again soon.
