Hippie Chick

 I have spend quite a bit of time recently watching U Tube tutorials on coloring with pencils. Tonight I thought I would put some of my new found knowledge to use.  I carefully colored the image and used Gamsol and a "blending stump" to shade. I was pretty happy with the outcome but I still have questions! so as "they" say "back to the drawing board" heehee

My card design  was inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday sketch which I modified it a bit because I didn't want to cover up my shading job on the birthday girl's STONEWASHED jeans LOL! THEN I trimmed it badly and cut her off at the knees (major no no) but I was so pleased with the shading I didn't want to re-do it. ROTFL

I guess there is very little chance I'll be recruited to create cards for a big successful papercrafting magazine but I like it and  I hope you will too.

Each month I create a card to give away to one of my followers : ) Just follow THIS POST to see the card for my March17th drawing and learn how you could win it.

Please join me in the Mojo Monday challenge.  The ladies behind this wonderful blog deserve all the support we can give them!! : )

Thanks a bunch for stopping by!

P.S. Patti, thanks for your comment about my butterfly thank you cards. You had asked if I had ran them through a sewing machine and I did not. I used a paper piercer mat pack. So I used a piercing tool to make those "stitch" holes.

Hope this info helped?

Patti, This card is awesome! I especially like the jeans, and who needs to see below the knees anyway :) I have to admit though that the baloon effect is my favorite part!
