Fab Friday – Challenge 80 – Penny Black XOXO
Welcome back to the Fab Friday challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog! We had a nice long holiday break, and we are all raring to go!
This week we have a color challenge:
Of course, this is a natural for a Valentine's Day card, and I have some new stamps just for that purpose that I was dying to use, so I pulled out this awesome new stamp from Penny Black from one of my favorite designers, Mo Manning! It's such a cute image, I really don't know how anyone could make a bad card with it. But you know me, I always come through with something GOJUS! (YILM!) Lookie:
GOJUS!!! (YILM!) I was happy to be able to participate once again in the 30-Day Coloring Challenge with this image! I used Copics to color in this sweet little girl blowing kisses.
I used a touch of Pale Thistle (BV0000) as shadows on the folds of the skirt and dots made with the Signo white gel pen, and I thought it gave it the look of a gauze overskirt with flocking. I also added some Spica clear glitter to the flowers and some red to the bodice and heart on her skirt. I tried to capture it on camera, and it just didn't make it, but it is GOJUS!
I used a combination of square dies from Stampin' Up! and MFT, and I used the Sweetheart punch from SU for the greeting. The ribbon is some I got from Michael's a long time ago. The patterned paper is a long-retired patterned paper stack from SU.
These little hearts are some older embellishments I had hanging around.
Below is my list of products that I used (that are still available), and I have used affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC, Scrapbook.com, and Blick Art Supplies. Buying through these links helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you. Stampin' Up! product links lead to their webstore, so please be sure to indicate your preference in demonstrator if it doesn't come up automatically!
