Fan

Today marks the mid-year and also another challenge at Some Odd Girl!  This month is a simple sketch and there are all sorts of way to make up your projects.  I kept true to the sketch this time around and then had fun adding a few embellishments for a finishing touch.  Here's what I did...




For this project I used Fan from Some Odd Girl as a clear stamps.  I even remember a few of the color combos... can you believe that?  LOL  Ok, so for the skin I used E50, E51 and E53.  The Hair was E55, E57 and E49; then the reds were R02, R05, R08 and R29.  The last thing I remember was using T3 for the sharp shadows; oh and E04 for her lips.   So except for the teals and gold, that's pretty much all the colors!


Thanks for droping by and hopefully you're all having a great weekend.  For those in the US, hopefully you're getting ready for a great 4th of July!  We just got out our July books and the kids delved right into reading those so I guess I'm off to a good start.  Now if only I can find a place to watch the fireworks without the overwhelming crowd and endless traffic to get home!

  2. I know I rave about all your cards but I really like this one. The papers are gorgeous together and with the striking ribbon. I also love the pretty flower and the touch of paper behind Fan. She really pops out in her red dress, it ties in perfectly with the floral paper. You are sooooo good. Have a fab Sunday. xx

  4. Oh really? The middle of the year already?!!! How did that happen?! This card is just gorgeous Barbara! I LOVE it! I love how you have coloured Fan and the papers are a fab combination! I can never use big floral prints like that... I cut them out and then try them and end up putting them in the scrap pile or turning them over and using the plainer side! I love how yours looks!
