Brilliant


I found this printed image in my stash of unused "schtuff" and decided it was time to color it and make it into a card. The image was a free d/l from Suzy-Ike's World. I colored it with Copics, focusing on fluorescent pink lips and fingernails, so I edged the mat with the same FRV1 Copic for some color coordination. The sentiment is a die cut from SSS and I used the back of a paper pad, colored with the same FRV1 Copic before cutting. I'm not very good at coloring hair, but I think this will make a great card for a girlfriend - especially one who's accomplished something worthy!

I'm sharing this over at the Tuesday Throwdown #239 which is "friendship."

Thanks for the little visit, and I wish you a perfect day!

I think you coloring of her hair is just fine. Love that die piece sentiment and your florescent pick just sets everything off nicely. Enjoy your day. We are just starting with rain now that is suppose to last for three day straight.

This is great, I love the way you've used the pink in the design and your colouring looks good to me. It is a lovely image and I am sure someone is going to enjoy it.
