Wishing You Well...

This is for you Barb!
Get well soon my friend!

This image was colored up for Heather Valentin's Coloring Without Boundaries - If you are interested in improving your coloring, I encourage you to 'follow' this new blog.  This morning I posted a mini tutorial on shadows and light source based on the coloring of this image.   If that is something that amuses you, hop over today to check out what tips I have to share on shadows.
Almost everyday there will be another Colorist sharing their tips and techniques with you!


  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP is from ______?   It was cut in strips and layered to imitate the ruffles from her dress.
  • The bow was created out of the same DP used for the background using a die from Tim Holtz.
  • The inside is embellished with papers left over from the front.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:

    This card should be eligible for the following 
    Fab & Funky #290 – All creatures great & small [Pickles the frog in the bucket]
    As You Like It / Your Favorite... One or Multi Layer & WHY [Multi layers - adds opportunities for depth and texture, framing & interest!  Kinda like the ruffles on this dress!]
    The East Wind #48 – Friendship [between Eleanor & her frog]
    Winter Wonderland – Best Friends [Eleanor & her frog]
    Pile it On #101 – Homemade embellishments [paper bow]
