It's all about the hair!

Happy Sunday everyone! How has everyone's weekend been so far? Mine has been pretty busy as usual. I had Friday off and spent the day working on images for my upcoming class at Stamping Bella. Then yesterday my BFF's Pauline and Kathy took a trip to Scrappin' and Stampin' in Livonia and took Paula's advanced pencil crayon class! I only managed to get three of the four images colored but I think I learned to be a bit more adventurous when selecting colors.

After class we headed to Hobby Lobby ...oh, I should say that was AFTER we ate a couple white castle's to see what the hoopla was about, and the three of us concluded we are NOT white castle fans...sorry Paula, but on the way to Hobby Lobby we went and had a Sammy at Quizno's! LOL! THEY were good! Okay, back to Hobby Lobby...Kathy scored the deal of the century and scooped up a Quickutz Revolution for $24 BUCKS!!! How's that for a great deal!


Okay, enough blabbering! My card today is Gratty 'tude and check out that hair!!!!!! Let me warn ya, you'd better not be in a hurry if you wanna do hair like that, but my labor paid off and she is stunning, if I do say so myself! On the topic of hair I want to direct you to this hair coloring tutorial I found via the Copic Creations blog. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor several times after seeing that one! For Gratty's hair I did loosly follow that tutorial and used the colors Mary listed. Sorry, I forgot to write down the other colors I used, but there really isn't much left after you do the hair..LOL! Pencils were used for the grass and shading and I covered the black dots on her dress with Ranger's white opaque pen. The dots in the flowers were done with Sakura Souffle pen and two layers of the clear glaze pen covered the hearts and the black of her shoes.

Have a wonderful day!

First let me say that if YOU are taking any kind of classes or reading turorials, there is absolutely NO hope for me...and after looking at that turorial, I also know why I can't perfect my coloring...I just don't have that much patience.

Having said all that, your card is absolutely darling!! Thanks so much for sharing your talent!

This is such a BEAUTIFUL card. I saw it in person at Paula's class and I have to say that the pictures doesn't do it justice. If everyone thinks it looks great in the picture the real thing is 10 times for stunning. :-)

As always you never disappoint Linda!
Love the card!!! Oh to dream of colouring like that one day!!!!

Betty Meyskens said...

Linda - wowsers!!!! Love that hair - you did an awesome job on colouring. I am jealous that you are teaching a class at Stamping Bella - if only we could go to Toronto. Maybe you will teach one around Chatham ---- maybe, maybe....

dpkennedy said...

So her hair was done with Copics?! Wow! This is gorgeous!

Alyssa said...

This is amazing!!! Are you going to be able to give this up? ;o)

leenda said...

Amazing hair color! Wish I could get that color in a bottle!! lol Thanks for the url for the tutorial.

OMGOSH!!! This is GORGEOUS!!! I just LOVE your coloring!!! Beautiful card!!!

paulatracy said...

Yes! Lindabella got herself into my class and did NOT need it one bit. I should have had my sewing machine there and forced her to stitch...now THAT would have been fun...but, I am always thrilled when we can see each other. so...not a Castle girl?? Hmmmm, I TOLD you! This card is the most stunning creation and that hair in person is UNREAL!! I wanna do this too!!!!

I just love coming to your site (and to Paula's) because I usually have to pick MY jaw up off the floor. That is some awesome hair!!!! :) You make it look easy and I know it is not. Love it all!!!
