Oodles of love

Hi!  After seeing Emily's latest release, I thought I better get colouring up some of the images from the previous release that haven't seen ink.

For today's card I coloured up an Uptown Girl called Lucille sends her Love.

I wanted to colour the hearts another colour other than red, so I found this pretty paper from Prima called Almanac- peach and black - perfect.  I began by stamping her on bella's bestest paper using black memento.  She was coloured using copics and shaded with pencils and gamsol. The nice thing about the Uptown girls is most come with their own sentiment, which I used.  Since these images are so long, my 6x6 paper didn't quite make the length, so I added a couple pieces of punched black scallops along the bottom - I used an EK Success scallop punch to do this.

Finishing touches - lots of glitter and some black lace.

This weeks theme is a sketch challenge-  colour up one of Bella's designs, then you get to pick your favourite sketch layout.  Choose from any of the 11 sketches we did this year, then email your card to Emily by thursday night.

Thanks for stopping by, see you Friday!
