Time for Beauty

Our challenge theme for the Copic/Promarker Challenge at The Outlawz this week is to Colour an Embellishment.  This one had me putting my thinking cap on for a while because, in case you hadn't noticed, I'm not very good in the embellie department lol. While I love them on everyone else's cards, I struggle to get them on mine and be happy with the end result...I think that's why I stick to fairly CAS layouts...or make 3D stuff!!

This is what I came up with:


I've coloured the Kaiser rhinestones on the mat with my Y26 Copic marker...the photo below shows them better :)  The beautiful image is from Gingerloft Designs. And woo hoo...I stitched on this card! My sewing machine is very happy :)

Here's the bling :)


Thanks for looking...have a wonderful day :)

Supplies:
CS:  Express It blending card, SU Choc Chip
DP:  Origins from Basic Gray (6" paper pad)
Stamp:  Beauty from Gingerloft Designs
Colouring:  Copics, glitter pens
Other:  Superfine glitter, glaze pen, metallic gel pen, Kaiser rhinestones, foam dots

Another amazing card Lynne! Love this quite different image & the way you have coloured her. Yikes, it's a skewed panel - how come you can pull this off perfectly when I sit there & keep nudging skewed panels until they end up vertical again, lol! The yellow rhinestones look cool - must give Kate's copics a whirl on that. Love the stitching too! (Mr Sewing Machine must be very happy!) Hugs :)

Hi Lynne :) Sorry I've been MIA for a while. Just finding enough time to make the odd card for the DT's and then I'm away again :(
I really love this card. I love all your cards! You're such a talent when it comes to colouring and wipe the floor with me when it comes to flowers... GRrrrr... LOL!
I'll catch up with you soon... PROMISE! XXX

Lynne, this is a beautiful card. Your stitching and colouring are so neat, and the 're-done' rhinestones look fabulous!
