Sweet Little Julia

Don't you just love the weekend!? Today is our last day in Colorado, we will start heading for home at some point today and be home tomorrow {barring any freak spring snowstorms of course, LOL}. Do you miss me?! I miss all of you!! I know I had lots of auto-posts but haven't gotten to the blogs and PCP pages and comments and such. I will start catching up when we get home though!

Today I thought I would share this sweet little Julia card I made. The image is called Young Julia with Purse and it is an Anki's Sweethearts for SCACD image. You can only get her at Susana's store! I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copics {big surprise there huh?}. It might sound kinda dumb, but getting Copic markers has brought back my love of coloring! I do like using watercolors still, and also pencils and Gamsol but the Copics are my favorite.

So, I colored her with the Copics and added some highlighting with the white gel pen. I colored a bunch of white flowers gray to go along with my color scheme and added Kaisercraft Pearls in Blush to the centers. I cut her out with Petite Oval Nestabilities and made the mats the same way. A little bit of ribbon, a metal embellishment tag from my stash and she's ready to go!

**There are two blog posts {two cards!!} today so make sure you catch both of them!!**

4 people made my day!:
