Dilly Beans Framed Girlie


In my travels around blog land recently I found Dilly Beans Stamps and I'm captivated!  If you've visited my blog very often you know I like to color people with big eyes and fun hair.  

I re sized my Framed Girlie digital image to fit a card front so I could make a one layer CAS card with her.  I must say the hair is a lot of space to cover at this size and was challenging for me.  I don't feel like I got all the lines of demarcation gone to my satisfaction but I can print this image as many times as my heart desires and keep practicing because it's digital.  I do like the size of her eyes though - so it's a trade off.

She's colored with Copic markers and I added eyelashes to her eyes using Copic multiliners and a white gel pen.  Megan K. Suarez is the talented artist of these images and in her paintings her ladies have fabulous eye lashes so I thought I'd give it a try.

My card today also works for our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge - the theme is "Any Occasion" with no sentiment.  She's going in my OWH box (:

Jan, No one would ever know you were challenged coloring her hair. It came about beautiful as did her eyes and those gorgeous lashes. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just draw lashes on ourselves like that? Great card.
