Looking Fabulous

   Make It Crafty has a design call going on at the moment (until April 12) for a new CAS design team.

   They have some lovely stamps, both rubber and digital. For my card today I combined two of their digital stamps - dandelions and Kimberly-hula-hoop - and printed it out on Neenah card.

   I coloured Kimberly using Promarkers and used the following colours:
      Skin - oatmeal, blush, dusky pink, vanilla
      Hair - cocoa, cinnamon, tan
      Eyes - china blue
      Clothes - china blue, denim blue, powder blue, pastel blue
      Shoes - cool greys 4 and 5
      Hoop - cardinal red, berry red, poppy

   I coloured the dandelions and grass using Spectrum Noir pecils with the following colours:
      Grass - 045, 046, 048, 056, 057
      Flower heads - 003, 015, 020, 068, 112
   I also added 095 to the hair to enhance the darker brown colour.

   Having completed the colouring I cut the card to form a 139 cm sided square and using  the Good Hair Day set of Tatty Twinkles stamps added the sentiment. I then matted this onto a 142 cm sided black card square before attaching it to a 6 inch by 6 inch square card blank.
   Here is the finished card:

      I am entering this into the following challenges:
