Sweetie Sonia from Artbymiran

Here's a cute card I made using the image Sweetie Sonia from artbymiran.  I am quickly becoming addicted her images!  They're so lovely, and she has a great variety of images!  I've had some papers from Basic Grey's Konnichiwa line from a few years ago, and FINALLY found the perfect use. As soon as I saw her, I knew I'd be using it!

I forgot to keep track of all of the Copic colors I used, but here's what I know...for skin I used E000, E00, E04, E11 and E21; hair was BV20, BV25 and BV29; dress was R11, R32 and R35; jacket was G000, BG09 and BG57; shoes were W7, W5 and W3.
In addition to the paper, I used brown lace, and die cuts from Spellbinders (lacey squares, labels seventeen), La La Land Crafts Berry Flourish and Tim Holtz Caged Bird.  I cut the bird cage twice, and used foam adhesive to give the cage dimension with the bird inside it. Thanks for looking:)

Artbymiran Winter Challenge

Here's card for the Artbymiran Winter Challenge on facebook.  I colored the adorable Elfie Elizabeth for this one.  When I was rooting through my stash of paper, I found some of the 'Snow Day' collection from Crate Paper (from a couple of years ago).  Not traditional winter/holiday colors, but a super bright and fun line.  I decided to color her in similar colors.  It's funny, I was going to toss her once I had her done, because I wasn't so sure of how the colors looked, but the kiddos all loved it, so I went ahead and made the card.  Looking at the completed project, I actually think it came out quite nice!

I used the skin colors I use on most projects: E000, E00, E11, E21 and E04.  For her hair I went bright with RV69, RV66 and RV52.  Her dress was colored with G000, BG13 and BG49.  Her shoes were done with C3, C5 and C7.  I added a little bit of sparkle with stickles on her hat and dress.

I hope you like her!  I think I'll send this one to my daughter (usually I just hand them to her, so she'll be quite surprised if it shows up in the mail;).  I'm off to finish another image by Artbymiran...

Missy Chic

Artbymiran Anything Goes Challenge

Here is my latest entry for the artbymiran Anything Goes challenge. I couldn't resist the Missy Chic image.  Her hair is gorgeous!  So much fun to color:)

I used Copic markers to color the digital image. For skin I used E000, E00, E11, E21 and E04.  I colored her hair with E29, E25 and E21.  Her dress is colored with R56, R59 and R81, and her shoes with W5 and W3.  The card is made with papers from the Carpe Diem line by Glitz. A little but of lace, vellum butterflies - I use Martha Stewart's large monarch butterfly punch), and the wood frame is from Michael's.  I hope you like her!
