Mavis in her KINI!

Today I have a cute card to share with you.
I introduce to you- Mavis in her KINI!  I have had her stamped off for quite a while but just never got around to coloring her up until last night.

Mavis was stamped on bella's bestest paper and colored with my Caran d'Arhe pencils.  I didn't have any paper in mind when I colored her up, figured if I used pinks and greens I should be safe.  Well I have to tell you, going through my papers, (and I have mounds) it was harder than I thought it would be.  But came across this paper and thought hmmm this will work.  Well it is a bit busy but went with it anyway. Added some glitter to Mavis's headband and the water.  Finished up with a yellow bow and a brad.

Also, the Bellariffic challenges start up again on Jan14/11.  We are starting off our challenges this year with a sketch by Kim Teasdale. If you would like to play along with us babes, email your card to Em by thursday night, for a chance to win some bella bucks.  Here is your sketch:

Thanks for stopping by. Till next time....

I think your paper is perfect for this image! She's bright, she's cute, she's ready for summer. Sadly I think we have a few more months of winter to go before we see days for bikinis unless you're lucky enough to have tropical vacation plans. Hmpf - which I don't.
