Veronica by Mo

How was everyone's weekend?  Can you believe it is May already.  Now if it would just warm up. Weather was kind of gloomy here for most of of the weekend, so managed to get some colouring done - which always makes me happy!

For today's card I coloured up a new image (last months release)  from Stamping Bella called Veronica by Mo Manning.

I went down to Paper Pickle on friday afternoon, and they just got in some of the new Basic Grey - Sweet Threads, so had to scoop up some of that yummy paper. Have you seen it yet? well I used some on this card, and I'm sure you will see me use is again.  I don't think I will every tire of this collection.

So this is what I based my card colours on.  After stamping Veronica on bella's bestest paper I coloured her using prismacolour pencils, and used copics for the skin tones. This stamp does come with a sentiment, but didn't use it this time around, but I needed something down in the lower left corner, so after trying ribbon, buttons, I settled on a flower. Not sure if I'm 100% sold on the flower, but it's on there now, so I guess I will go with it.
Finishing touches, glitter and some stitching.

For any local gals - I'm doing an afternoon class at Paper Pickle on Wednesday, May 4, so if you are interested there is still seats available.  If you are, then give the store a call for details.

Thanks for dropping by, see you on Wednesday with another card.
