If you haven't been to the Michelle Perkett Studio, then you need to go! I found her on Paper Craft Planet, & I couldn't wait to get some of her images colored! That's one thing I love about digi images....instant gratification! I'm sharing two of her images with you today.
My first card features the Queen of Hearts Birthday Girl. She was printed on white cardstock & cut out in an oval shape. I colored her with colored pencils & blended them with Goo Gone & a blending stump. Next, I inked the edges with Memories pink & red inks. Queens need lots of bling, so I added lots of Magic Scraps glitter on the hearts, hair, shoes, lace & highlights, but it doesn't show up in the picture.
Since I bought a ton of papers from the Target $1 Shop last week, I just couldn't resist using 2 of them in the background of this card. Target also carries these totally yummy glitter paper by Colorbok for only $1 for TWO sheets! I bought some in pink, blue & white. The Heidi Grace flowers were another bargain, only this time it was from Big Lots. The rest of the ribbons, rhinestones & brads were from my stash. If I keep using stuff from my stash, I should probably deplete it in about 10 years!!! lol
The next card uses another Michelle Perkett image called Buddy. He had a snowflake sweater when I bought him, but I wanted to dress him for Valentines Day with lots of bling from the K & Co. Adhesive Gems pack! I have a rottweiler as a service dog, so I couldn't resist coloring him like a rottie. He was colored with colored pencils & blended with Goo Gone & the highlights were added with a white gel pen.
Another set of the Target $1 Shop papers got recruited for this card too. I cut the bone out by hand from an adhesive mat stack from DCWV (another Big Lots bargain!). The Love sentiment is a sticker from my stash. Buddy had to have some more bones on this card, so I added some from a pack of The Paper Studio embellishments. I put my trusty Fiskars edge punch to work on the plaid paper. I didn't want to fence Buddy in, so I added some Magic Mesh BEHIND him! The edges were inked with Adirondack inks (hit another $1.99 bargain at Tuesday Morning!) & then I added some XXOO around the border of the bone with an Zig marker that doesn't show up in the picture very well.
