Birthday wishes - Posh

Morning everyone!!


Today's card was created because my beautifully talented cousin, Shar GD, wanted me to show her how I color black hair on a Stamping Bella image.  I recommended some blogs and websites to check out but she wanted me to share how I color black hair so being the best accommodating cousin that I am (LOL) I dragged out my Bella's and found one that was pretty close to the one she had, Uptown Girl Posh.


Trying to go by the waves in her hair I added some color.  It's super hard on this image because the image itself is small.  So I had to use the very tip of the marker's brush and go slow and steady.  I left a little bit of white space here and there. Then I went in with a lighter color and filled in.  I colored in the rest of the image and here is the finished coloring...


I thought a nice bright fushia with an offset of black would make for a fun color combo.  For the gifts how about my version of a Tiffany blue?


I kept the card truly CAS.  I only added the sentiment that comes with this gorgeous stamp and mounted it to a card base that matched the gifts. Because this was a party dress I had to give it some sparkle so out came my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to do the job and boy I'm so happy that you can see it in this shot below.  Chee-hoo!


This was a fun image to color up!  Making it in to a single layered card was perfect and quick.  I guess it's easy when you don't add to much to it.  My kind of card!!  hahaha!!


That's all for today, wanna say thanks for stopping by and thanks to Shar GD for asking!  Have a fabulous Monday!!

Oh, I love how you colored the stylish image. The lacy black dress with the bright skirt edge is terrific. It looks fancy even without layers and embellishments. Thank you for showing that crafters don't always have to go overboard with extras to make a stunning card.

Oh, this Stamping Bella image is very cool...and, WHOA! Your coloring skills on her are amazing. I really like that you left this CAS, your beautifully colored image with the sentiment is all you needed for this classy sassy card!
