Hello everyone, and Happy Friday! YAY! Friday is such a great day; it's the end of my work week, today it's the start of a new month, AND also FREEBIE FRIDAY at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug blog! WOOHOO! Today's image is a cutie, so make sure you head on over to grab it for your collection! The DT has some beautiful cards there as well, so make sure you give them some love! Here is my card:
This sweet image is called Two Girls, and will be available all this coming week, as you know. The beauty of this image is that it can be interpreted in different ways...this could be two sisters or two friends, and could be an encouragement card, friendship card, or a thank you, depending on what sentiment you use. I love that! I went the encouragement route today, with this sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy stamp set. It's laid out all in one line, so I did some masking and moving to get the words on top of one another. I *ALMOST* forgot to remove the piece of tape before stamping the last line...could you imagine!? All that time spent coloring...of course you can see I remembered at the *last second*!! WHEW!!
Speaking of coloring, I went back to my tried and true alcohol markers for this card. I am still trying to get skin colors right, and I have been trying to use a BV marker underneath the E11 shadows, like my buddy Renee does over at Delaney Jane Cards. It's a work in progress...sigh. It looks way better in my edited picture than it does IRL. LOL...another thing about interpretation with this image. While I was coloring away, I thought the whole time that the little girl had a headband in her hair. Right after I colored it that way, I realized that the little oval on top of her head was *supposed* to be the other girl's hand...OOPS! Well, I think she looks cute either way! LOL
*will add these later*
Well, thank you again for stopping by! I wish you all a good weekend, and I hope we all get some crafty time in! Until next time...
Take Care, and God Bless,
