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!
