That's odd...

What 'cha think?  For a challenge theme of "That's Odd!" I think this Sassy Cheryl image fits right in.   I really like him - but have struggled with how I would use him till now.  Besides being "odd" - this image is perfect for a Belated Birthday.  Soooo - check out the challenge fun:

(We are looking for an ODD number of embellishments!)

Using Copics, I decide to use cool greys on everything except the splash of color for his nose and scarf.  I wanted to emphasize the "odd number" embellishments concept - so I backed up the three ribbons and knots with the three yellow panels.  The elements are placed on a square, black base card for contrast.

  1. are so good and coloring images! Your card is so cute! So glad to be on the CYP DT with you!

  2. This image is crazy fun. Love the tones of gray with the splashes of colour. Your shading and highlighting are fantastic and add such depth to the image. The stripey background with the ribbon embellies provides an awesome and whimsical background for this guy.Another wonderful creation, ~ginny.
