...sometimes. I struggle with colouring of images for my card projects. Really. I do. And it's not for lack of equipment either. I have Sharpies, koki's, Steadler fine tips, crayons, pencil crayons, fancy pencil crayons. Listing them out like this makes me feel kind of like a hoarder, but then which of us crafter's isn't?
Anyway, I struggled with colouring this image until I had a look at the packaging that the stamp came in. It was like a light bulb came on in my head and was flashing at lightning speed. I am good at copying. Whether it's actually drawing something or colouring it in, making a box or putting together a Scrapbook LO. I am good and it's a talent. It's probably the reason why I could never be an original artist.
So I picked up my sharpies and coloured my image by looking at how the packaging had 'coloured' her and came up with this (granted, much brighter and funkier) version:
It's not as expertly done as some of the 'professionals' out there in big wide card making world, but I think I did pretty well according to my standards and experience.
I put together the card with a mixture of patterned and plain cardstock, and adorned it with a big red bow. Bow envy anyone?
Put together, it looks like this:
Hope you all have a fantastic Friday! it's the weekend!
