Are you ready for a partyyyyyy? I hope so, because I had so much fun coloring in this darling lady by Stamping Bella – I received her as a christmas present from a dear friend who knows just how much I love coloring (and drinks). This is image is perfect to practice shading, and it’s not too big in case you struggle with coloring large images.
I actually had a different plan for the background on this card, but my first attempt at creating it went terribly wrong and I tore up the entire card base (those of you who stalk me on my Facebook page or on Instagram will have seen the horrible mess I made). Fortunately, with some extremely patient fussy cutting, I was able to at least salvage that gorgeous girl (and the drink!).
For the background on this card, I went wild with my MFT stencil – which I just HAD to buy after I’d seen my muse, Francine Vuillème, use it on a bunch of cards. It’s like the age-old crafty saying says: “If they make you overspend after teasing you with crafty supplies and you still talk to them, they are true crafty friends.” 😀
Basically, I started out with a light green that covered the entire background, and then added darker shades through the stencils and spritzed it with my Mini Mister and Perfect Pearls for shimmer. Voila!
