Hi There!

Up for you today is a sweet little girl from the Hero Arts Sweet Wonderful You stamp set. She would be SUPER fun to paper piece but I am still trying to learn how to use my Copics so I decided to practice up on her! With the exception of the ink smudge on the bottom of her cheek (note to self, let ink dry before coloring), I think I did…. ok! Nothing a little touch up here and there with my Mac’s Iphoto couldn’t fix! HA HA HA HA! I am on the video 5 of my online Copic Class so I had no business trying to do this image. She is JUST starting to talk about blending. But typical me got it in my head that I can do it…. Like I said yesterday, I can’t wait to complete my beginner’s course and go back and redo these images. Also, I have never drawn out a frame with a pen before that I have seen on so many other beautiful cards, so I thought it would be fun to do on this CAS card.

I played along in three challenges with this card. The first is Wee Memories! Their challenge this week was source of inspiration. I actually found inspiration in the Jenny’s (Challenge Founder) card. It’s the first card on her post. I was very inspired by the colors she used to PERFECTLY color her image with. And secondly, I am playing with the Simon Says Challenge, which was to add a little coffee and cream colors to your project! By the way, all of the Simon Says DT samples illustrates the perfect coloring. Jealous here I am! 🙂 And finally, the CPS sketch challenge blog!

Have a wonderful day!

PS. My husband has informed me that we are attending a work function next month that requires us to dress up as Saturday Night Live characters. UPDATED: I WAS WRONG. IT IS SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER! ANY HELP WITH COSTUMES FOR THAT? (Am I the only person on the planet that has never watched that show? I don’t enjoy that kind of goofy humor, thus, I have never had any desire to watch it. Now I have to come up with costumes! Lots of twitter and facebook friends have given me wonderful suggestions, all of which I have to google because I have no clue who those characters are! So, if anyone wants to donate two SNL costumes to me, I will not be to proud to accept! HA!!!)
