Little Daisy

Hello everyone! I hope you're having a great weekend so far. I have a card to share today that I really had fun making. I'm practicing my coloring. Coloring hair still gives me trouble. I don't have copics so I have to rely on Bic Mark It Markers, Inks, chalks and watercolor pencils with blender pens. I know *gasp* I don't own copics! I never have the extra money to get any. When I do get a little extra cash to spend, I find a great new stamp to buy or some wonderful papers I absolutely need! hee! hee! So, maybe I need to set aside a little each month to go toward some copics.
Anywho, Daisy's hair gave me fits and I'm still not satisfied with it. I wanted it to have a look of sunshine beaming on it....didn't turn out like I wanted. But, I am SUPER excited about how her jeans and t-shirt came out!


I covered a few challenges with this card:

Mojo Monday Week 121
Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ Going Girly
2RedBananas ~ Think Round

I colored her with watercolor pencils and chalks using blender pens. I love the rounded look of this card. I used the SU! set Simply Said (thanks Lesley!!!) for the Pixie Pink flower background on the white textured c/s. A strip of Pixie Pink c/s with brown ribbon at the top with a scalloped choc. chip circle. The dp is scrap/stash I had with a circle of pixie pink and a misc. flower and button. I backed the image with choc. chip c/s. Then to give the image an extra little touch I stamped and chalked the tiny flower from Simply said, cut it out and put it on with a mini glue dot.
Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you can come back very soon :)

Until next time...
Blessings...
