Elegant lady!

Hi Everyone, well - from no mojo to a card in 10 minutes from start to finish!!!!! OK I did have the image already coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers, but didn't know where to go from there, then saw this weeks Outlawz Sketch Challenge and it came together WOW! wish all my makes did the same LOL.

I matched the image, which I had coloured so that I could try the image out! with digi papers I have had since 2008. I stitched the left side and then added colour to the stitching by using a marker. Added dimensional drops and put two dies together to make the swirly hearts. layered the image with layering die cuts - all done. Just one thing - I wish I was better at colouring faces, the ink seems to blend a little too much! Practice, practice is the answer.

Great job on coloring...and it fits in with your digi dp just perfectly. I like this sketch. I hear you on the No MoJo. I'm often perplexed as to how to use an image after I've colored it. I like the coloring process, just not all that creative when it comes to putting it all together for a nice card. You did super on this one! Glad it was a fast make for you too. TFS & Hugs.
