Please meet Keisha!


I have bought my first digital stamp image. Her name is Keisha, and she is from Mo Manning at: http://www.digitalpenciltoo.blogspot.comi/. I love her to death - hope you do to :o)

This little girl was so much fun to colour!!! I hope I have done her justice. I am sorry she has a hair over her face - I did not notice until I took the pictures - OH MY! It is gone now !

Here are a few close ups for you :o)

This card is for a special couple and it took me a while to decide on colours etc. But I am happy with what I finally decided on. Because it is for both a woman and a man I wanted it to have blue as well as pink in it.
I had a piece of pink card stock that had dimensional lines in it ( don't know where it is from ) so I used that for the card base, and ran the lines horizontally. I also had a piece of white with dimensional tiny hearts on it. I painted that whole piece with Pink Shimmerz and when it was dry I painted over the tiny hearts one at a time so they were darker. I used SU's lovely white Organza Ribbon and wrapped it around the heart paper and tied a big bow. I printed 'Keisha' onto Gina K's 120 lb. white card stock. After she was coloured I cut her down to size and placed her onto SU's Tempting Turquoise. One side of it was cut out with MS small Heart Border Punch. I attached the turquoise on an angle over the heart paper. I also stamped the sentiment with Tempting Turquoise ink, and with SU Marker in the same colour, ran it around the cut out which was done with the SU new Scallop Oval Punch.
On the inside of the card I used Imaginisce - Tiptoe Through Tulips. I cut borders on both pieces with MS larger Heart Punch and placed them on the Turquoise paper. I then stamped the second sentiment onto white card stock , bordered it with the turquoise and placed it on the Tulip paper....... both sentiment stamps are from the same set: ' Card Sentiments' from 'Clear Art Stamps'.
Here are some pictures of the inside of the card:

As usual I coloured with Copics. I am sorry I forgot to take a picture of them but these are the ones I used:
Face: R32, E33, E35; Hair: E09, E29; Dress, Hair Band, Shoes: R30, R21, R32, R0000; Basket: Y11, Y23, E33, E35; Flowers: Y15, BG0000, BG01; Leaves: G21, G24; Ear-rings and nail polish were also R32. I used Stickles: ear-rings and nail polish: Fruit Punch, Centre of Flowers: Yellow, Dress, hair band, ribbon and shoes: Cotton Candy.
Gosh that is a lot - I hope I have remembered everything!!!
I just wanted to show her to you as I had so much fun making the card today :o)
Love to you all and thank you so much for the wonderful comments you leave me.......

Candy, this is perfect. Superb job in colouring. Love the soft colours. Sweet image. Have never tried digital images, but have just bought a few from Mo so will give it a try. I think the hard part is trying to decide how to downsize her images.
