Starting out this week VERY SASSY with a TOUCH OF PINK

Hello all you people out there in Blogland. First let me say I am VERY VERY excited to have been asked to join the Sassy Studio Designs Design Team. (Say that three times fast!). I love coloring up their images, so to make the very talented team was a very COOL thing. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!!! Still can't quite believe it!

I am starting off REALLY quickly too. You see SSD is sponsoring Link up For Pink and I have made a card to support that.


I chose the image Madam Honey to make this card. The inside reads "to get them checked".


I debated having her say "unless you have a crystal ball... you really should have them checked".  But thought this one was more positive.
I wanted to make sure that this card conveyed the right kind of energy. The  pink expresses unconditional love and nurturing, Green is the color of balance and growth, and Silver shows feminine energy. Ok... I looked that up! :-)  But I did it before I made the card, to make sure it sent the right message!

I hope you all check out what the other DT members have done on the Sassy Studio Designs blog to support this wonderful cause.

I used the following colors: E51, 53, 55, 57 for her skin, C1, 2, 5, 7 for the silver, R81, 83, 85, 89 for the Pink and G82, 85, 94, 99 for the greens. I then added starburst glitter pens on the silver, the crystal ball, and a little on her turban. Glossy Accents were added at the end for the crystal ball. The blue around the Nestie is B91 - airbrushed.
