Fridays are cool cause it's time to show you yet another card with one of Phindy's phabulous images. The challenge couldn't be simpler this time - use buttons. EVERYBODY has buttons. If you don't, go on, snip some off from the shirts of co-habitants. They'll be delighted!
Yeah. Well. Here's my card.
The image is called Reading to Sissy and it's available other way around as well (sister reading to brother), there's also afro-american version. I loved the image from the first sight since my kids are at similar age so when I needed a card to send to my parents this was a very obvious choice.
Colouring is all Copics, glitter writer on the trims of the babygro, just a little bit of clear glaze to liven the eyes.
The ribbon is from my stash, buttons from Bunny Zoe's Craft. Papers are BG Nook and Pantry (which, next to Origins seems to be one of few BG collections that actually work for me). All the stitching is done by hand and border punch comes from MS.
Please pop in to Phindy's Challenge Blog and have a look at the gorgeous work of the DT, it's going to be a treat - I think this week my card is definitely the weakest of the bunch!!!
Now to the QUESTION: I have had a lot of questions in my comments and via email about my colouring. I am truly honoured and VERY flattered that you like it and absolutely delighted that there seems to be quite a few people who find my work pleasing and fun. Thank you all so much!!!
I do not consider myself to be an expert in any way but if it could help somebody I might try and start making notes on Copics I use on images. Would that be helpful? Leave me a comment and let me know or drop me an email.
Now, before I leave, let me enter this card into some challenges. Cause I'm a junkie like that.
