One of the Bellariffic Babes, Crafty Cath, made this gorgeous card and I was totally smitten with her colouring - so much so, that I made her card my desktop background for weeks! Cath very kindly stamped a few images and popped them in the mail to me. I looked at them, then Cath's card, then the images, then her card and so on and so on. I was completely intimidated and could not even start to colour one. Well here we are 4 months later and I thought to myself, why stress so much? My highest compliment to Cath would be to CASE her card....giving her all the credit, of course :) and so here is my card.
The image is Sorry Shanna from Stamping Bella and the paper was still on my desk from this card. Yes, I know, time for a clear up! I had Cath's card up on my computer and followed it bit by bit. It took me ages and I can't remember the last time I used so many copics but I'm really pleased with the end result.
I even tried to draw in some grass! Oh, and I used pencils blended with gamsol too for some shading on her dress and a bit of pale blue shading around the image - just like Cath! I kept the card pretty simple as I wanted the image to be the main focus, so just the Open Scallop Border Die-namic from MFT and some SU Daffodil Delight ribbon.
So, thanks Cath for the inspiration, the images and the courage to finally try it!
