Groovy, Baby

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! :)  Whew, where have I been? :)  So sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I've been trying to keep up with work and a nine month old and spring cleaning . . . it's just been crazy around here :)  But I have lots of images colored and hopefully will have some time to make some cards in the next few weeks. 

I also have some super exciting news!  I was asked by the amazing Suzanne Dean (Scrap Bitz) to join her Color Me Creative Design Team!!!!!!  For those who don't know, Suzanne is a copic marker coloring master! She teaches online classes at Color Me Creative.  I have been coloring with my copic markers for years, but it wasn't until I took some lessons from Suzanne and watched her online classes that I really started to "get it."  I am now so happy with my coloring and I owe that all to Suzanne!  Thank you so much Suzanne for asking me to be part of your DT, it is truly an honor!

Twice a month, Suzanne has a challenge over at Color Me Creative.  The DT creates samples with the challenge theme for inspiration and those who participate are eligible for a prize.  The challenge this week is brunette hair.  You can see all the details as well as the DT samples HERE.  Our amazing sponsor this week is Digi My World, I just love their sweet images :) 

For my sample today, I used the adorable Shagadelic Image from Digi My World.  Here's my card:


Isn't she fun?  I had SO much fun coloring her and she was perfect for the challenge, as her hair is fantastic :)  I printed the digi onto my Copic Xpress cardstock and then colored her with copics.  Here's a list of the copics I used:

Hair: E21, E25, E29
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Pinks: R81, R83, R85, R89
Blues: B91, B93, B97, B99
Vest fringe: E42, E44, E47
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender

I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from Echo Park.  I added a ribbon (from Michael's).  The gem in the center of the ribbon is by Recollections (Michael's brand).  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The swirl in the corner is a Memory Box Die.  The sentiment is from Pink By Design Stamps (I believe this set is retired unfortunately, I love it!).  Finally, I added some blue pearls for a finishing touch.  Here are some other views of my card:




 
And some close ups:

 
 
 
Whew, thanks for making it this far, this was a really long post today :)  Please head over to Color Me Creative and check out the challenge and the DT samples and then please play along!  If you enter the challenge, you can win some adorable stamps from Digi My World!  Thanks so much again for stopping by.  I will be back soon with another project :)
