So Shy

Isn't she just adorable. I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw her and just had to get her. Not that I don't have enough digital images! She is called Sweet Sarah by Chrissy Digi's and which I found at  Whimsey Stamps. I love the sitting images, except Magnolia, but there are very few images to sit them on. I was so glad when I found that they also had a really cute seat to place her on called Love Seat

I am taking an online intermediate copic class offered at Simply Scrapping Crafts.  This week we are learning how to color faces and this is one of the images I used for my "homework".

I was able to use my all time favorite paper, Jolie Chocolat by SEI. The colors were not a perfect match, but close enough for me.

Anyone else find it hard to match paper to copic colors? I pick my paper and then use a color chart I made of all the colors I own to match the colors to the paper. Then when I am finished they don't match. Grrrr... How frustrating it is. I end up picking my paper by the "well it's close enough' strategy, lol, as I did here.

I cut this butterfly out of one of the sheets of papers. I hope I don't regret it later when I want to use the paper and there is a big hole where I want to cut!

Sandy it's a lovely card, and I have a tip for you, I have all my copics and promarkers on a color chart of the type of cardstock I will be coloring on which in my case is the digital cardstock from Craftwork cards, then I can match my papers to the color chart to get a very good match.

Hi Sandy, this is a lovely card with some well chosen embellishments. I seem to go for co-ordinating rather than trying to match. sometimes it's easier. Thankyou for sharing this with us at Tellen's Place this week and hope to see you back next time
