Happy 40th Birthday!

Hi there, Charlene here with my first post being a member of this amazing DT.  I was so honored to be asked to be a part of the team and work with these amazing papers from Paper Temptress.  I can’t wait to be able to create with all the beautiful papers they have to offer.  Today the card I am sharing with you is for a special lady in my life my daughter in law.

My image is colored with copics on the amazing Cryogen white paper.  I love this paper as it allows the color to blend easily.  My image is a digital image called “Zoe celebrates” from Make it Crafty.  I print in draft mode and have no problems with the ink smearing when coloring over it which is another great plus for the Cryogen white.

The designer papers are from Doodle Bug-Sugar Shoppe, base card stock is bazzil.

Colors used are as follows:

Skin: E50, E51, E93

Jeans: B91, B93, B97

Blouse and flowers: RV63, RV66, RV69

Hair: E35, E37, YR23, Y23

Shoes: E42, E44

Eyes; YG23

One of things I like to do is after my image is all done I go over my shading with Walnut Stain distress inks.  I use a very short tipped blunt end brush very lightly I feel like it adds a little more depth to the shading.

Thanks for the opportunity to share my creations with you.  I hope you will find them inspiring and that you too will find some time to color it is good for the soul!

Have a great week!

Big hugs,
