Sassy Lady

     The challenge at The East Wind this fortnight was to do something "Sassy" and I chose to use their freebie image for April to make this card.  Their challenge is already closed.


My colors came from Color Sisters.


     I colored the image with ProMarkers (I tried some distress markers I have and I just don't like the look of them.  I'll take alcohol markers any day!) then cut both it and the frames with one of my favorite framing dies by Spellbinders.  Everything is dry embossed and set on dimensional dots for texture.  The bow was cut with a die from Memory Keepers, I think.  All the colored CS came from left over scraps.  I added the computer printed sentiment on top of the bow.

     Challenges:

     I hope your weekend has gone well and that you've had some 'down' time in which to relax and enjoy.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

You're coloring on this, once again, is so pretty Connie! I have a few of the distress markers and like you, just prefer the alcohol too. Never can get the distress markers to look right for some reason. Love your card and she's framed out so pretty.
