You bring colour to my life...

Hello friends! How is your week going? Last night I taught class at Paper Pickle.  We did 2 great cards, both images by Stamping Bella.  The ladies did a fantastic job on the colouring.  Here are the cards we did. We used lots of product on these two cards- pencils & gamsol, distress inks, chalks, embossing powder, s/binder dies, liquid pearls, and glitter.

For my card today I have a Mo image to share with you.  Here is Painter Meg.

Meg was stamped on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink.  I coloured her with copics and shaded with pencils basing my colours on some new paper I bought at Scrapfest. This paper pack is by Prima Marketing called Doodle Deux.  Love the colours in this, from reds, oranges, yellows, greens black and soft blues.  Meg looks kind of like a boy with these colours, but I think they suit her (of course I talked myself into that because I didn't want to colour her again! LOL).  The black strip along the bottom was cut from a new die I bought at the Stamping Bella booth - it's called Notebook Edge from MFT.  I used the negative side of the punched edging.  Love it when a die has a dual purpose!
This stamp set also comes with a sentiment which I didn't use but it says: you bring colour to my life.

Finished off with some stitching, sponged some antique linen around the image, and used a glaze pen on the paint - it gives it a nice glossy finish.

That's it for me for today, enjoy your day with whatever you are up to.  Thanks for stopping in, and I will see you on Friday for our bellariffic challenge.  You still have time to play along in our sketch challenge. Just email your card to Emily by thursday night or upload it on SCS using the keyword BELLARIFFIC1512.

So jealous you got some new paper at Scrapfest. I love paper - hoard paper - don't really need ANY new paper! This looks perfect with Meg. And heck I don't think Meg looks like a boy. Just a colorful painter! And she looks like she's having fun!
