Practice, practice, practice!

There's was a slight change in plans for today, the tile guy canceled. He's working on another job and they uncovered a mess and it's going to take longer than they anticipated. I didn't really feel like taking my computer apart today anyway, I felt more like stamping!

My card today isn't actually "stamping", it's what I've been practicing coloring. I've been looking for larger images to practice on so I can get better at shading and adding details. I printed the image off of a free Manga coloring page site and after I colored it my kids wanted it. Hmmm, this might make a good birthday card.

I used Copic markers to do the coloring. I ran out of one of the pink shades in the middle of her top and decided to keep going with the other two colors and see what happened. I did use one stamp from SU Sincere Salutations set and used some of my retired SU designer paper wih Brilliant Blue and Pretty In Pink cardstock.

Happy stamping!
