Hope you are having a great weekend! Today begins another fun challenge at Stamptacular Sundays...our theme this week is "Let's Hear it For the Girls" - I say "amen" to that! The women I meet in my personal life and in blogland never cease to amaze me with their energy, creativity, strength and compassion so this challenge is dedicated to all the wonderful women in my life who I am so blessed to know and love!
You can interpret this theme any way you want.. just don't forget to stamp! You will have from now until midnight August 25th (EST) to complete this challenge and post your submission into our InLinkz in order to be entered into the drawing for this week's fabulous prize donated by:
For my card, I selected another digi image by Hannah Lynn called "Janessa". These images are among my favorites to color because they are so beautiful and soulful. They also continue to challenge me with my favorite medium, copics, and help me grow in experimenting with color choice and technique. I want to thank Alyce (Kit and Clowder) for recommending a paper change for my copics. This image was colored on Make it Colour cardstock and yes, it is not sold in the USA so shipping is expensive, but if you can order it with someone and share a package, it is so worth it. For those of us who were having some issues with our E's blotching on the paper, this may be a solution. While I have not abandoned my Cryrogen White or Xpress it cardstock, this paper has eliminated the problem and is fast becoming my favorite.
"Janessa" is colored with copics (colors below). The design paper, once again, is DCWV "Stardust". This sheet of design paper has gold stars embossed in it so it helped create the night sky I wanted. The coordinating gold dp has images of the sun embossed on it also. I added small gold flatback pearls to the center of some of those stars. The lace and cheesecloth was spritzed with Ranger Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle and Gold Glamour Dust.
