Two Posts in One Day?

Stop the presses, I'm posting again! Since I had plenty of time to color in some images this weekend, all I've got to do is find some cardstock, possibly some patterned paper, and embellishments and put them all together :-)

I normally do not use Brilliant Blue but decided to pair it with Pink Passion for this one and really like how it turned out. The dp is from BasicGrey's Phoebe collection and I think it's perfect for this card! The image is one that Heather RAK'ed me and I think it's super, super cute!!!! These images are from a Norwegian company and are called Rakles. They are totally fun to color in and are HUGE!!! I colored several this weekend so you'll be seeing more soon.

Anyway, I colored her in with a variety of Copics and because I was coloring in the car, I didn't down which ones I used. She's matted on Brilliant Blue and Pink Passion and adhered over the patterned paper layer with dimensionals. The sentiment is a rubon from the SU SAB set of rubons. I'm still hoarding but do plan to start using these more often. I like how crisp and white it is against the card base. I punched a photo corner from Pink Passion and added some Pale Pink Dewdrops to the photo corner. I really wanted to see what some green ones would look like but I either didn't order them like I thought or they're hiding from me somewhere right now. The photo corner is up on dimensionals as well.

This card is also perfect for Cindy's Terrific Tuesday Challenge which is to pick a color you don't often use, try to see it in a new light, and use it on your card. As I mentioned, I really don't use Brilliant Blue--I think this is my original cardstock that I got my first year as an SU demo :-) but I think it totally rocks here. So, try it out, visit Cindy's blog, and let her know you played along.

So, voila! There you have it--another card to add to my stash for those days when I need a card for someone. Hopefully it will brighten their day!

Thanks for visiting!
