I used another adorable image from Alisa Ramirez called Pretty in Pink. I stamped her on water color paper and used stampin up ink pads and an aquapainter. I used a pretty pink embossing powder to create the cuffs of her outfit. Prima flowers, MM button, embroidery floss and a Happy Birthday charm complete this card. Remember making friendship bracelets? I used that technique to hang the charm :) Some things never die huh!

It's a color challenge!

The wonderful gals at DZ Doodles are hosting a color challenge! Our challenge this week is to create a card with Orange and Black. Fitting since it is almost Halloween don't you think? :)
I am so excited to see what everyone comes up with so please come on over to DZ Doodles and see all the guidelines! This does not have to be a Halloween card, in fact, you might challenge yourself NOT to make one. I, however, couldn't resist!
For the challenge, I created a card using the wonderful digi image, Trick-or-Treat Thelma. Isn't she great! I popped up her hat for extra spooky dimension.
The image is colored using Derwent water color pencils and a Dove Blender. I used Stickles on her apron and patches. Spellbinders dies, Cosmo Cricket papers and black brads complete this card!
Like Thelma? Purchase HERE!

Happy Crafting!
